Small Town Project is announcing that they are seeking a youth leader to join their board of directors. Applications are now open and are due on April 30th. Youth Board members are high school students (Junior turning Senior) who are interested in developing their own leadership by becoming more involved in their community. Through participation on the board, youth leaders learn about many different projects that exist with the help of the Small Town Project. Board members bring back to their school peers and community organizations information they learn through the various volunteer projects and other opportunities for youth, as well as lead our youth committees. Applicants must be current Juniors in area high schools and will sit on the board through the end of the 2021 school year, through the summer, and through their entire senior year. Applications can be completed online or a paper application can be emailed, faxed, mailed, or dropped off at the Small Town Project office. Questions can be directed to Duane Gurule at (719)316-2198 or dgurule@smalltownproject.org. Youth Board Member Application https://forms.gle/Jja5T8k5Kpb4Cb6v8

RFJSHS Prom: We are hopeful that public health will allow students to attend prom without a mask. For this option to be a possibility, it would involve administering the BinaxNOW rapid COVID test to the students. The school district will continue to pursue this and will notify parents and students if permission is granted. Stay tuned....
