2017 Summer Dare

summerdare(edited)All right RAHS students, it’s almost time for summer, and you know what that means! Staying at home, closing the curtains, and sitting on your laptop for three months straight. Okay, maybe a few of you actually have fun plans. But for the rest of you, who are already stocking up on Doritos, the Phoenix Flyer is here to give you incentive to get out the front door!


We’ve compiled a list of the best, most fun, enjoyable, happy-time-causing, good-memory-making, hallmark-movie-feeling, Instagram-worthy, big impact, summertastic things to do this break, and the goal is to complete as many as you can. Some dares are worth 1 point, and some are worth 2. The student who gets the most points will receive a 10-person pizza party when they return to school, and a feature about their summer adventure in the Phoenix Flyer!


To get points for completing dares, you must have evidence: either video or photographic. One dare per photo please! This can be submitted to the Phoenix Flyer (room 3530) in a printed scrapbook, a google folder shared with ahsphoenixflyer@gmail.com, or on a Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account dedicated to the dare. Label which dare it is and how many points it’s worth. No photoshop! Submit by (date) for credit. Good luck, and HAGS!
