Reminder to complete the Student Services Needs Assessment: We are asking parents to complete our RHS Parent Needs Assessment Survey, using the following link:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1afC4Sq6jRdW0MWNZfiCy3lYfPzCtX2_CrejAm2zd78I/edit?usp=sharing We are using data from our needs assessment surveys to create programs that will better serve our students.
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.
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.
