Summer is always filled with fun activities within the Rhinelander High School (RHS) student council. Earlier this month, on the 8th and 9th of July (from 8:30 am Tuesday morning until about 4:00 pm Wednesday evening), right before the Hodag Breakfast for country-festers, the full student council (those who were able to make it), including incoming freshmen through seniors, attended a 2-day session at Cedric A. Vig Outdoor Classroom (CAVOC). Activities included: getting to know each other, going over the constitution, planning homecoming, team bonding, ropes course, and other fun activities! The group accomplished a lot during this time. They are looking forward to a fun and productive upcoming school year.
