Congratulations, Youth Leadership Rolesville participants! Youth Leadership Rolesville is a leadership development program for students who live in Rolesville. This training program is for high school students who have demonstrated leadership abilities and who wish to learn more about the community and how to make a positive community impact.

Note in the Pocket: Hello, parents. Starting now there will be a new student run operation at RHS. It is called Note in the Pocket and is a organization that donates used clothes and school supplies to children in need throughout Wake County. Parents, when your children begin to outgrow their clothes, collect them in a bag, bring or send them to Rolesville and place them in a collection box when we open the window for collections. There will be further updates as to when the boxes are out ready for donations. For further information, see www.noteinthepocket.org.
Food from off-campus lunch: As you all know, students have been told that they are not to bring food back into the building. I have shared with students during announcements and want you all to know that food must be consumed before it comes into the building. We have trash cans in the parking lots for trash and leftovers. I have no desire to take the food nor does any staff member. Please help the students understand that the food is subject to confiscation if it comes inside the building.
Grades and off-campus lunch: In the lunch pass agreement, students sign that they must keep grades up. They cannot have any Fs. Students who have lunch passes and earn Fs will have their lunch passes revoked for a minimum of two weeks. Students will be required to demonstrate at least a C in the classes that they failed before they allowed to utilize their passes again. Grades matter and students need to have a substantial enough start for the second nine weeks to move them toward a likelihood of successful completion.
