Harvest Fest at Redmond High School (Oct 26, 6PM-8PM)

Redmond High School will be hosting Harvest Fest on Tuesday, October 26, from 6PM to 8PM! All RHS elementary schools that feed into RHS are invited to this Fall/Halloween-themed event. Students will get to wear their spookiest costumes and participate in various activities hosted by RHS clubs, including cookie decorating, face paint, games, and more!

Admission is FREE but it would be great if you could bring “shelf-stable” or nonperishable food donations for RHS students in need.
