Rolesville High School Weekly Updates | November 21, 2017
Thanksgiving Break: Wednesday - Friday, November 22-24
WRAL Brain Games w/ RHS in the House: Saturday, Nov. 25. Check the morning listings. I do not have the time handy.
Junior Parent/Student Information: Whether you were able to attend the parent meeting on Monday or not, the information from the meeting has been posted to our school website in the Student Services section at https://www.wcpss.net/Page/27061. Please make sure that you sign up for the Junior Remind account and pay attention to the ACT/SAT information. Text @98d8e to 81010 to join. Students really should take their first round of ACT/SAT in the spring semester if not already done. We will offer the ACT on Feb. 27th at RHS. The students need to take this test very seriously. It is the REAL DEAL and is a good gauge for students who are making college application decisions. There is also information about college planning, financial aid planning and CCP at Wake Tech planning. Please take the time to review the information if you were not present.
Note in the Pocket: We will have boxes in place to collect new and gently used clothes beginning Monday, December 27th through Friday, December 8th. We will run the collection again after we return in 2018. If you are cleaning out closets in preparation for new gear for the holidays, we will be happy to take lightly used, clean clothes. When I was at the middle school, we specifically had NITP jean drives, because that’s what most of our students wear each day. NITP is utilized throughout Wake County to clothe students as opposed to the whole family. Counselors and Social Workers often support families through this service. You are also welcome to make donations of new clothing items.
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.
Graduation Fees: Mid-year graduate fee of $20 is due by December 14th. Payment should be made online through Online School Payments on our school website. Also, seniors who will graduate in June also should pay their $40 online through the same portal.
Junior Meetings - continued: Student services will be facilitating Junior meetings on Monday, November 27, with students who missed their scheduled meeting last week.
Reality of Money: The Reality of Money event at RHS is quickly approaching. It will be held on Wednesday, November 29, and we could use your help. We need lots of volunteers! The link to sign up is http://tinyurl.com/SignUpRHSRealityOfMoney.
CTE Workkeys Assessments: These assessments are required for students who are concentrators. The assessments begin on Nov. 27th.
From PTSA: Thank you for all you have done so far to support the Rolesville High School community. It’s that time again for us to show our Rolesville teachers and staff how important they are to us. We would like to thank them in a very special way on December 4th with some wonderful sweet treats and goodies as we enter into the holidays. Please register to donate via the signup genius link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b44a5ae2fa3fc1-holiday.
What Every Tech Healthy Family Needs to Know: In partnership with the Wake PTA Council, Instructional Technology and Library Media Services is sponsoring a parent event entitled "What Every Tech Healthy Family Needs to Know." As a part of our fall Convergence, our opening keynote speaker, Janell Burley Hofmann (author of iRules: What Every Tech Healthy Family Needs to Know about Selfies, Sexting, Gaming, and Growing Up) will speak to parents on November 27th from 6:30-7:30 pm at the McKimmon Center at NCSU. Attached you will find the invitation to parents. Please feel free to share this with your parents and teachers. There is limited space and registration is required (http://bit.ly/wcpsstech).
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.
