This test is being offered to all 10th grade students that would like a practice test for the ACT. It is a curriculum and standard based educational tool that assesses the students' progress toward academic readiness for college and it will give students an estimated ACT score. If your student does not take this test this year it will not count against them in any way. However, there will not be another opportunity to take this test at school. The ACT will be offered their 11th grade year on campus.
Wake Tech Community College Information Sessions: On May 18th, Wake Tech will be offering a Live Information Sessions for 11th and 12th graders who are interested in knowing more about Wake Technical Community College. The live session will explain the curriculum, college transfer & health science programs. They will also discuss the admissions process and other resources, tutoring, athletics & clubs/organizations on campus. A Google Meets code will be sent to you the day before the presentation (to your WCPSS email) so you can gain access to the live presentation. Register for the sessions HERE.
Wake Forest Career Readiness Academy- The Wake Forest Career Readiness Academy sponsored by the Wake Forest Area Chamber Foundation is an 8-month program for rising seniors in high school who are looking to become career ready. The program offers over 40 program hours of soft-skill curriculum content, virtual/face to face career panels, leadership and career exploration opportunities, and support to develop a career plan from an assigned one-on-one mentor. More information & application available HERE. Deadline to apply is: May 14th at 5PM.
Students May Keep Chromebooks But Must Return Hotspots by End of School Year:
Any student who has a WCPSS-issued hotspot must return it to their school by the end of the school year. Hotspots will be disabled after the last day of school. Students who have a WCPSS-issued Chromebook will keep their Chromebook through the transition to the 2021-22 school year. Students are not required to return their Chromebooks to their school at the end of this school year, even if they are transferring or advancing to another WCPSS school. Students who are graduating or leaving WCPSS are required to return all devices to their school on or before their last day.

Next Cap and Gown Distributions

Thursday, May 13th – 10:00am – 1:00pm
Latin Honor Stole Distribution: Following the Parade on March 26th at RHS
Graduation Announcement Insert Pick-up: They have arrived. Once we separate, we will email students & parents to come pick up. We have the list of those who ordered them.
Senior Parade - May 26th (async day) We will send more information soon about a parade during the day through town. Seniors will be invited to participate. This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to celebrate with the seniors. We will send more information soon!
IF YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED A SCHOLARSHIP, PLEASE EMAIL MRS. SAMEK IMMEDIATELY: (firstname.lastname@example.org) She has to know amounts that you have been awarded in order to compile information for the county and the senior awards program.
Also, if you have applied for a scholarship, make sure you are checking college information portals and your email regularly for notifications. They are not going to chase you down. You need to make sure that you are following up responsibly.
SO IMPORTANT: If you have not yet replied to the request from RHS to tell us if you prefer to participate in the larger graduation ceremonies on the football field on June 11th or the individual diploma pick-ups on the 12th, PLEASE let us know right away on this link. We also need to know if you are not planning to participate in either ceremony. We have much planning to do and these numbers are critical to this planning.
The Ceremonies in the Stadium: If numbers allow, we really would like to hold two ceremonies. We understand that students want to walk in the same ceremony with their friends as much as possible. The sooner we can get the responses to the above link, the sooner we can tie this up.
Update - Graduation Announcements: Jostens will order some change of date inserts cards with the corrected dates and location.Times will not be included as there will be assigned ceremonies and rain adjustments.
Planning for Graduation: As you know, there will be no graduation ceremonies at the Raleigh Convention Center this year. Schools will host their own ceremonies on site. We will host both larger ceremonies similar to the RCC ceremony and intimate celebrations for families who prefer not to be in large crowds. We will soon send information to help you plan. We will also ask you to commit to one format or the other to help us plan accordingly. In the meantime, there are a couple of things senior families need to do now to prepare.
- If you have not ordered a cap and gown, you must do so through Jostens.com. You must have a cap and gown to participate in the ceremony.
- As you can imagine, expenses to hold events at school will increase in order to plan for and deliver nice events. Senior fees must be paid through Online School Payments on our school website. Thank you to those who have already taken care of this. For those who need to do so, please go ahead and submit the fees to allow us to prepare.
Applying for Scholarships: Check out the scholarship update at the RHS Student Services website weekly! You can't earn $$ if you don't apply!
