With the end of the first quarter of the school year at Riverbank High School, the staff and administration took the opportunity this past Thursday to issue report cards and hold parent-teacher conferences on campus.
Various school groups and organizations also took that opportunity to raise money for different programs that benefit the students and their activities at the school.
While teachers were meeting with parents and students in classrooms, the Bruin Booster Club, mostly parents themselves, took the opportunity to sell Bruin apparel where report cards were being issued. The club also sells the apparel, along with food and other snack items, at home games and meets during the school year.
The Boosters use the money they raise during the year to fund the purchase of team uniforms as well as providing several scholarships for seniors at the end of the year.
Next to the Booster Club, students from the RHS Yearbook staff were selling their books, the last chance to take advantage of a discounted price. The full price remains in effect through the rest of the year. The books arrive at the end of the school year.
In the Home Ec room, members of the Riverbank High Guard and Drill Team were selling taco dinners as a means of raising funds to attend the various competitions they have scheduled through the school year.
A group of soldiers from the U.S. Army also was in attendance, discussing the benefits of military service to those interested.
