Children of RHS Faculty and Staff Enjoy Bring Your Child to Work Day on Campus

Though most RHS students spent the day at work with their own parents, the high school hallways were still crowded with young people on Bring Your Child to Work Day, when faculty and staff members brought in over 60 of their children to enjoy some fun-filled activities on campus.

In keeping with the beloved tradition, members of the Future Educators Association (FEA) club planned and executed the annual event with advisor Ashley Kanya, ensuring that the children of participating RHS staff would be happily occupied for the entire day.

“I’m just excited we get to do this for the kids of the teachers,” Kanya said. “They all seem to have a good time.”

There was no shortage of amusement for the children, who followed a meticulously planned schedule of activities that spanned the entire day. Highlights included an animal show, a dance session, a pizza lunch, a robotics demonstration, story time and even a scavenger hunt.

Kanya said she was grateful to the student members of the FEA, without whom this event wouldn’t have been possible. “They’re such great kids,” she said. “They’re so good with the little kids, and it’s so great how awesome they are.”

Rampage asked some of the children who attended what their favorite part of the day was. Here’s what they said:

  • “Eating lunch here.” –Skyler, age 4, daughter of Physical Education Teacher/ Dad Richard Salmon
  • “The dancing.” –Nina, age 6, daughter of RHS Principal/Mom Jessica Baxter
  • “Making a lot of bracelets.” –Joshlyn, age 6, daughter of physical Education Teacher/ MOM Gina Adickes
  • “All of the fun activities.” –Mason, age 7, son of Special Education Teacher Ashley Gregory
  • “The robots and the [construction] building.” –Callan, age 8, son of Special Education Teacher /Mom Danielle O’Rourke
  • “Playing Kahoot.” –Gerard, age 10, son of English Teacher/ Mom Cara Canfield
  • “Hanging out at school with my brother.” –Ryan, age 13, son of Social Worker Lauren O’Toole
