RHS Weekly Updates | October 15, 2017
Early Release - Friday, Oct. 20: Remember that we release at 11:45.
Reindeer Day - Nov. 4: The Rolesville HS PTSA has one major fundraiser each year to support the activities that PTSA provides to the students and teachers of Roseville High school. These activities include: Senior Breakfast which was held in September, Senior Picnic which will be held in May as well as the graduation Baccalaureate service which will be held in June. In addition, the PTSA supports student enrichment activities for the entire school as well as provides tokens of appreciation to teachers (i.e. treats or gift cards during teacher appreciation week to use for their class room). None of these activities would be possible without the funds that are raised during Reindeer Day. This year’s Reindeer Day will be held Nov 4. Please consider signing up to volunteer in one of the 3 hour blocks to help support this event and advertising the event to your network of friends, church’s and affiliated organization.
