There’s one in every class — a class clown. And when the school days get chillier and students’ silly energies are pent up indoors, clowning around becomes an art form.  

At RFH back in the 1970s, the art was taken to an extreme one fine, dull day. Not that we’re encouraging any antsy RFH students who may be a little bored and have the itch to engage in some mischievous antics …

A reprise from 2019 as an ode to the dismal weather. Cheers and sun up!

The weather has not been quite fair these days. In fact, it’s been downright dank. And with dreary weather comes a little bit of a lackadaisical mood — especially for students cooped up in a high school all day.

Let’s face it, though, those lounges at RFH made foul weather times just fine. And, lately, it’s been downright dank. That’s one of those words that just sounds like what it is. Yuck!

A little cheer in a reprise all about simple fun to be had in foul weather lounging and an antic or a few at RFH 

Some moments are meant for just lounging … like this persistent foul, frigid weather. Yes, lounging, even if those snippets of indoor time at RFH are inside a far less cozy, yet exclusive, special high school nook like the junior, as opposed to upper crust senior, lounge.

Well, we know full well that in the rare event auld acquaintance be forgot, there’s always a reminder of what was — and how unforgettable it is. This time the auld acquaintance is among a gaggle of girls who are all still friends from the RFH Class of ’83.
