Congratulations to Coach Kessler and the girls softball team on their well-earned state championship. It was an exciting week of softball and so great to see so many Regals in attendance. In addition to winning the state title, congratulations to Dani Laughlin, Emma Nibaur, and Jillian Panther for being named to the all-tournament team. The boys baseball team made it to the district final game before ending their season. Congratulations to Coach Pacha and the baseball team.

The Family Fun Festival is right around the corner, Aug. 19 & 20. In order to make this traditional event successful, Regina will need the help of many volunteers. Please click HERE for opportunities to assist in making the Family Fun Festival a fantastic weekend for our families and the community. There are also several fun events and friendly competitions planned.

The Jr/Sr High will now start at 8:10 AM and dismiss at 3:10 PM (except for the regularly scheduled Thursday early dismissals).
