This morning, the entire building came together in the large gymnasium for November's Crew Celebration, centered around the theme of Teamwork. A heartfelt shout-out goes to the Fredonia State Men’s Basketball team, whose presence at RCS added an extra layer of excitement for our students.

Following the activity, they made their way to classrooms, where they shared the joy of reading with our eager students. It was heartening to see the students take full advantage of this unique opportunity, asking insightful questions and forging connections with their basketball player.
