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! More +
