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 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.
College Reps on Campus: The following colleges will have a representative on our campus to meet with students in the next couple of weeks. Any student who is interested in speaking to a rep should go by Student Services to scan the QR code to sign up.
