When was the last time you checked out the Reservoir High School website, http://www.rhsgators.com? I go there all the time when I need to check on information about the school, the staff, the different programs (sports, music, art, etc.).
It's a student-built site under the watchful and expert care of Reg Hahne, the website staff sponsor and webmaster. His protégés Teddy LaFemina, Grace Bodden and Nickolay Tobin are the students who work behind the scenes to create and maintain the site.
Teddy, Grace and Nickolay have done excellent work on the site. It's easy to use (a big plus in my book), intuitive, easy on the eyes of the colorblind (me) and, most important, up to date.
One thing I can't stand about visiting a website is when, first thing, you are greeted with out-of-date information. Congratulations to the team and to Reg.
Also at RHS, the freshman class of 2016 elected a new slate of officers. They are Dylan Fox, president; Jordan Mess, Ayo Omolana and Myla Wilson, vice presidents; Irman Muhutta, secretary; Gauricka Meester, treasurer. Congratulations.
