Richmond High School

As fun as the 80s were, it’s time for Richmond High School to get an update.

Built in the 80s, the facilities at RHS do not reflect modern technology and have not been updated in a long time. The PA system can’t buzz the gym and the office secretaries have to ring in the bell schedule every morning. Students lack access to modern technology and teachers must share two computer labs between all their classes. The special education students who run the school store and coffee shop don’t have the space to store their equipment or work on production.

A generous grant of $15,000 would go a long way in helping modernize the school and create opportunities for the students. We would be able to update the PA system, which is a security concern when trying to communicate with teachers in all parts of the school. We would also be able to renovate what is currently a storage area to a workshop for the life-skills class to use as a production site for school merchandise. With left-over funds, we would be able to update the technology available to the students, including a small classroom set of laptops/tablets for our upper level students.

In a rural school without access to the modern amenities that most schools have, our students do not have the same opportunity in terms of access to technology or skill-based classes. By updating our facilities, we will be better able to prepare them for life after high school.
