    Next for PTSA:  We have to move into full swing for Reindeer Day preparations.  The event is Nov. 2nd from 9 AM-4 PM. Admission is $3. We are looking for folks to manage one piece of this event.  We need a raffle coordinator, an advertising coordinator, a food and vendor coordinator, a volunteer coordinator, and a clean-up coordinator. We will send out a Sign-up Genius.  Right now, I just wanted to plant a seed to see if we have interested helpers.


    PTSA Needs Your Support:  Any and all of these would be a great help.

    1. Please join PTSA!  Forms were in the students’ first day packets.
    2. Harris Teeter wipes out links from their cards to schools in June each year.  PLEASE link your HT card to Rolesville High School again.  
    3. Please link us with your Lowes Foods card.
    4. When you are shopping, they ask that you use Amazon Smiles under RHS.  
    5. Target Cards can be linked using code 1534.


    Senior Info on Twitter:  Seniors and Senior Parents need to follow senior information on Twitter @RamsCounselors.  We reviewed this with the students at Senior meeting this morning.  


    To apply for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits Online:  Go to www.MySchoolApps.com today to apply and potentially avoid a break in service. Also, remember that there is a change that is very, very important regarding the carryover from last year to the next year.  I want to make sure families are aware. The new time limit for carryover from the prior year is 30 operating days or until the application is processed, whichever comes first. Remember that if students in the same household are on different school calendars, the deadline for benefits will be different dates. The deadline for traditional schools will be October 8, 2019. Families will receive a meal benefits card in the mail with instructions about how to apply. Paper copies will also be available at RHS when school begins. Students may request a copy from the cafeteria manager if paper is preferred over electronic application.
