RHS & Circle K Fueling Our Schools Project

We are so excited about the partnership between RHS & Circle K for the Fueling Our Schools project.  Fueling Our Schools is a win-win for all of us!  When you purchase gasoline at the local Circle K on  a Fill-Up Night, a portion of the profit from each gallon goes toward this program for a maximum of $1,000.   That money goes toward a program of Mr. Stoffer's choosing within the High School.  We have had one National Fill-Up Night in October.  We have a second fill-up night on February 14th for the Ridgewood-Coshocton game.  We will have another National Fill-Up night on March 7th and another date will be chosen before the end of the school year.  Click 'more' to see the presentation of a $1,000 check from Circle K to Ridgewood Schools!
