Rolesville HS Weekly Updates | December 20, 2018
Happy Holidays! Everyone enjoy your winter break! We will resume classes on January 3, 2019. Check out our the holiday sentiments from our arts department.
Orchestra: Arcangelo Corelli’s Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8, “Christmas”
Symphonic Band: Franz Gruber’s Stille Nacht (Mannheim Steamroller Version)
Practice ACT given on December 15th: Thanks to all of the staff and students who made the effort. This practice will be helpful when we review strategies before the administration that officially counts. Do not forget that we will have a representative here on January 10th at 6PM for the parents and students who took the practice test. They will provide score reports and helpful tips to families in a session in the media center.
Juniors Take the ACT: On February 20th, all Juniors will take the ACT for free. The scores for this administration can count for college admissions or it can be the kick-off as the first to help students improve over scores over subsequent administration. Remember that additional administrations must be secured and paid for by the students. We just want families to be aware that the February administration is a legitimate administration despite being free. We will sent more information as we get closer to the event.
Regarding the SAT: Remember that we have one onsite administration remaining for this year. There are spots open for the March 9th administration, but they will fill up fast. I recommend that students register asap for our location. Mr. Morales pursued this for our school this year, because he wanted our students to have the chance to test where they are most comfortable. Remember, juniors need to take care of testing and have their best results no later than around September of the Senior year. Therefore, they need to test in plenty of time going into the Senior year to be prepared for applications. Please just think about this and do your research to prepare for timely testing. Most schools that require ACT or SAT will accept either one. Research your schools of interest to know what they require.
Assignment Strips: Assignment Strips for our underclassmen were distributed Monday in second period class.
Exam Volunteers: Any parent or community member is encouraged to volunteer as a Hall Monitor/Proctor during the busy week of Monday, Jan. 14th - Friday, Jan. 18th. You will be able to receive one graduation ticket per day that you serve, up to 4 tickets. There are a limited number of tickets as well, so come early to guarantee tickets! Please note: students can not participate as hall monitors or proctors. Thanks for helping the exam week run smoothly at RHS. Time slots -7:25am - 11:25 or 10:25am - 2:25pm
AP Exam Registration: The deadline to register for AP spring exams is February 25. See the information on the school homepage.
Exam Schedule Preparation: It is hard to believe that we need to start thinking about exams. The time frame is Jan. 14-18. Jan. 18 will now be a student day and not a teacher workday. We just wanted to give you an idea now so as to be prepared for the time frame. We will post specifics and review with the students in the near future.
Bus Issues: The Rolesville District has had quite a few mechanical issues lately which have contributed to late pick-ups and arrivals. They want to let you know that they apologize. They also wanted to make sure you are using resources that should be helpful for managing in these situations. There is a bus app on the WCPSS Transportation website at https://www.wcpss.net/Page/35380. Also, bus updates are posted to the WCPSS Transportation website (https://www.wcpss.net/Page/1908).
