College Acceptance and Scholarship Notifications: Please remind your Ram to share that information with his or her counselor.
CCP and Wake Tech: Students who are interested in earning college credits at Wake Tech while still enrolled in high school may learn about the CCP program at ccp.waketech.edu. Information sessions will be held on both Wake Tech's north and south campuses beginning late February through May 15. Students will need to register on the website to attend the mandatory information session.
Planning ahead for current juniors: In the past few summers, seniors have taken portraits at a studio in Raleigh. We have been in conversation this past week and are very likely going to host tux/drape, cap and gown, informals at RHS during the week of July 30-Aug. 3 as opposed to a studio off site. I wanted to give you a heads up that we are trying to make the trip shorter and the effort easier to accomplish over the summer. There will be more information to come later, but I thought it would be important to let you know given it is a shift in the way we have done business in the past.
