me. Of course a lot has to do with my son, #12, going to Rouse. A new beginning for our family in a NEW school. I have taken up this enormous sense of Raider Pride that one gets when maybe you were in your own HS football or for myself, In Marching Band as a HS student. My younger son even bought, for himself, a gold dog chain that the school was selling. It has Rouse Raider on it and the year these Freshman will graduate "2012". He said he got it because that is when expects to be coming to this school. Only my oldest will be graduating that year as well. So I bought him one too.
I love to watch the marching band even though it is smaller then usual. Next year they will have more students in it. The Royals Raiders perform their dance very well! And the cheerleaders are an awesome group of girls that lead the crowd in helping us express our support. We have Raider Rousers that support both teams when one team finishes a game and as the other runs into the field to start their game.
We have outstanding teachers and the best coaching staff ever! I look forward to all the Athletics games and competitions in the future. **GO RAIDERS**
