Rolesville High School Weekly Updates | December 9, 2017
Canvas Parent app: As of December 4, 2017, parents can use the Canvas Parent app on Android and Apple mobile devices to stay up-to-date with their student's Canvas courses. The app helps parents stay up-to-date with Canvas course assignments and deadlines. Parents will be able to connect to their student’s Canvas account by creating their own account in the Canvas Parent app and then having their child log-in with his/her Wake ID information on the parent’s device in order to link the accounts. Attached is a support document to help parents install and navigate the Canvas Parent App. Parents and teachers can visit http://canvas.wcpss.net/canvasparent for additional information and support.
Senior Fees: Mid-year grads need to go online to pay $20 through online school payments no later than December 14th. June grads need to go to the same place to pay $40.
Senior Caps and Gowns: Either you need to go online to Jostens.com to order before Dec. 13th or students need to order on Dec. 13th when Jostens visits during lunch. Students will not be allowed to march if they are not properly outfitted. This attire includes proper cap and gown.
Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics: This program is for high-achieving students. It is free and held on four UNC system campuses and is open to sophomores and juniors. Applications are due on January 15th and are available in Student Services.
Schedule Change Requests: These must be made online on December 18th and 19th. They must meet the requirements to be considered. Students whose schedules will be modified will be notified on January 8th or 9th.
STAG and BTAG Clubs: These clubs are collecting hats, gloves, scarves, socks and puzzle books for transplant and dialysis patients. If you are interested in making a contribution, you are welcome to send these items to the main office.
Ram Rocks: Some of you will remember these from RMS. We have opened this option up for students at RHS. If you hear your child say that a staff member has done something worthy of a thank you, encourage him or her to go to the main office, media center or Student Services to complete a form and put it in the box. Sometimes the very best things we can give don’t cost a thing!
ACT Study Guides: We have guides in the media center available for check out.
NCTAP: Students who are interested in this apprenticeship program must register to attend a mandatory meeting. The remaining dates for meetings are January 13th and January 27th. Visit nctap.org to register and learn more.

During the 8th week, the students will attend an all expense paid trip to a week long "Student Leaders Summit in Washington D.C."

Registration for AP Exams: The site for registration will go live on December 11th. Mr Douglas, our Dean of Students, has prepared information for the AP teachers to share with the students. I want parents to be aware that this information will be shared prior to the site going live. If you wish to see the presentation, you will be able to access it on the RHS website. Go to Academics -> Advanced Placement -> RHS AP EXam Information -> AP Exam Informational Powerpoint.
Jobs Success 101- Rescheduled: Students who live in the Wake Forest area are invited to the first annual Jobs Success 101 training seminar sponsored by the Wake Forest Chamber Foundation. The seminar is scheduled for students on February 22, 2018 from 8:30-1:30 p.m. Since this is a school day, students would be required to have signed parent permission forms to miss a school day. The space is limited to 100 students. If students signed up when this was originally planned earlier in the year, those students will have first choice for this event and will already be signed up.
