    Reindeer Day - Nov. 2nd:  It is time to get really busy to host our major PTSA fundraising event of the year.  We are in need of parent volunteers as well as student volunteers….MANY volunteers. Please sign up at the following link. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b44a5ae2fa3fc1-reindeer4


    Language Preference in Talking Points:  We are pleased that many of you are already engaging with staff through the Talking Points App.  If you wish to receive the message in English instead of the home language provided to us in Powerschools, you may switch the language to English at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lSJyVEkFD65nhxtxfGVlHBGR7SQM6Kxn/view?usp=sharing.


    Virtual Meet-the-Teacher:  In past years, we have hosted fall meet-the-teacher open houses.  We know folks are very, very busy and face-to-face meetings might not be the best way for a majority of our families to gather information.  We have taken a different step this year to create a virtual site that shares teachers and teaching-team information. We will load the virtual site in the very near future.  Please check the website under Parents.


    Cars in Bus Lot:  The administrative team is very concerned that parents are using the bus lot to unload students in the carpool.  Carpool runs by the football field. Students are not to be dropped off in the bus lot. Please adjust your drop off if you have been using the bus lot.  We do not want to trespass carpoolers, but we must assure a safe place for buses to unload and also leave for next routes.


    Rams Gear for Sale:  Our winter headwear has arrived and will be on sale next week. Our online store is always open 24/7/365 for merchandise and apparel at:http://bit.ly/RolesvilleRamsBoostersSpiritWear


    Gently Used Caps and Gowns:  There are times that we could use the caps and gowns of graduates for displays, etc.  We would be happy to take back clean and gently used ones if you would like to get them out of the house.  Some of you have younger siblings here and might want to send them in. If so, we would welcome them.


    Makeup Day to Replace September 5th:  Students will now be in school on October 31st.

    Makeup Day to Replace September 6th:  Students will now be in school on December 20th.


    Request for Parent Feedback:  Student Services is requesting parent feedback to a needs assessment that they will use to develop programming to support students and families.



    Senior Parent Night Follow Up:  We would like to thank everyone who was able to attend our senior parent night as we shared a lot of information for your student's senior year this year.  If you were not able to make parent night last night, we have posted the powerpoint on our Rolesville home page at https://www.wcpss.net/Page/27062

    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.
