Preparations for the Practice ACT on Nov. 23rd: Registration for the practice set for Saturday, November 23rd has closed. Students who registered will get information during the week next week to remind them when to arrive and what they need to bring. We need for them to practice just like it will be in February or when they test on their own another time. It is critical that they arrive on time with the materials they need next Saturday. Also, please know that most students need to take the actual ACT (or SAT) more than one time if going to college. Juniors will test in February during the school day. Please remind your Juniors that they need to go ahead and test again in spring and no later than summer in preparation for college applications.

Business Ads in Yearbook: If you are interested in buying an ad in our yearbook or if you know someone who would like to purchase one, please email Ms. Rebecca Hatcher at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know.
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.
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.
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.
