"RAES West had a great day on May 23rd as a group of 15 students were eligible to go to Fun City as a part of their Incentive Program. They were allowed to bowl, ride the Go-Karts, play lazer tag, and use the arcade. Students must maintain good behavior, academic productivity, and high attendance to be eligible for these trips. It's safe to say that everyone had a good time. Terri, Mary, and Carey had a VERY good time as well!" 

Students attending RAES West now have the opportunity to enjoy the Warren County YMCA for their PE class.
