No students can march in graduation without the proper graduation attire.  Please take care of any remaining orders over the weekend.


    Pep Rally Collection:  Student Council collected 885 canned goods at our recent pep rally to be donated to the food bank.


    Panorama Survey:  Parents that have an email address on file should have received a survey from Panorama Education team. This survey is providing Rolesville High School with data on family engagement. You will continue to receive reminders from Panorama until the survey is completed. For those that do not have an email address on file,  a link will be provided to take the survey during the month of April. The survey period is from March 25 - May 3, 2019.





    Preparations for Senior Awards:  We have started preparing for this event and we discussed one possible recognition that we want to be sure we get right.  If your child has been in WCPSS K-12 and has had perfect attendance, please let us know asap. We had a situation last year that the computer did not pull a student’s name properly and we want to avoid this.  We want deserving students to be recognized, Please let us know so we can research. You are welcome to email me directly at dlassiter@wcpss.net.


    Driver Ed Forms:  We normally keep copies at the front desk and on the first floor of the cafeteria.  Presently, Jordan Driving School is not taking forms. A new form will be available beginning April 7th and they will begin to take forms again.


    Cords for Senior Activities:  The list has been posted on the website.  https://www.wcpss.net/cms/lib/NC01911451/Centricity/Domain/10633/Grad%202019%20cords.pdf


    Planning Ahead for the April PTSA Board meeting:  We will hold the meeting at 7 PM on the 9th following the senior parent graduation information meeting.


    Leadership Opportunity for Rising Juniors and Seniors:  The Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce has offered RHS 20 spots for some students to attend monthly sessions on soft skills for work, leadership, and financial literacy.  This program will also include a 120-hour internship. We are grateful for the opportunity to help our students connect with work in the local community as part of a program that may become a model for other programs across the country.


    Wake Tech Open Houses:  I got an email from WTCC regarding two upcoming open houses.  On April 6th, there is an open house from 9-noon at the Scott Northern Campus as well as 10 AM-1 PM for the Perry Health Sciences Campus.  For more information, go to openhouse.waketech.edu.


    Spring Semester Exams:  Remember that they begin on June 5th and run through June 11th.  We will release the schedule soon. We are trying to make sure that we have everything workable as graduation rehearsal at the Raleigh Convention Center is the afternoon of the 5th.  We are looking at the best way to manage that date with two major things happening.


    Graduation Date and Time:  I just want to remind you that RHS graduates at Raleigh Convention Center on Friday, June 14th at 8 AM.
