As the semester comes to a close, the Pride committee is issuing an award to ten lucky students who put in Pride tickets this past semester.
All the Pride tickets gathered this semester will be put together and ten tickets will be picked at random. The students who get chosen will be presented a field trip to SkyZone during the school day. This trip will include the 10 winners and each winner will be able to bring one friend with them on the trip.

Juniors Jacob Lorenzen and Summer Hinton have made Red Lion history.
The duo became the first Red Lion team to score in the top three at the 32nd Annual Millersville University Science Lectureship and Competition on Nov. 17. They worked together to complete a test based on mathematics and science topics and earned third place.
“We went into the competition with very little preparation,” Lorenzen said, “so when we got third place, we were very excited and surprised.”

Punkin Chunkin--it’s an activity that has been steadily gaining popularity over the past few years. The idea is that participants build some kind of machine — usually a catapult or a trebuchet — capable of launching pumpkins that range from five to eight pounds.
Chunking festivals around the nation have popped up, with the most well-known in Delaware.
On Nov. 4, the festivities were brought to York County, with a Punkin Chunkin contest at West York Middle School. Red Lion juniors Tyler Burchett and Andrew Bacon placed fifth out of 15 teams while there.
