Publicaremos la traducción al español en "El Informativo" a principios de la semana que viene.
Hello, Ram Fam,
Here is what is happening this week at RHS.
Senior Information Meeting Link: https://sites.google.com/wcpss.net/rhsstudentservices/grade-level-information/seniors/virtual-senior-parent-night
In Lieu of a Face-to-Face Meet the Teacher: Since we have very limited capacity to meet with parents during the pandemic, we will not host an in-person meeting. The teachers have been asked to provide information including contact information on their landing pages. You may access these by going to the school website and then clicking on “Our School” and then “Staff Directory.” In many cases, the staff member will tell you where to access class information that students may also see. If you wish to peer into the online materials, have your Ram show you how to access it with his or her account. Staff pages will be completed by close-of-business on Thursday, Sept. 16th.
Upcoming Administration of the ASVAB: The ASVAB test will be given on Friday, October 1st at 7:30AM-10:30AM in the Media Center. The ASVAB test can be taken by 10th - 12th graders interested in the military & military careers, or students interested in identifying their skills and strengths for various professions. Please visit: https://forms.gle/U4KVncteNMx5i78X9 to register for the ASVAB. Students need to register through their WCPSS account. The final day to sign up for the ASVAB is Monday, September 27th. Please contact Mrs. Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
HBCU Week: We hope you have followed us on Twitter this week as we celebrated HBCU week. During Advisory today, students were able to see this presentation on scholarship opportunities at HBCUs.
WRAL Voters' Choice: Remember last year when RHS was voted Best High School??? Nominations start next week, so y’all need to get ready to nominate us. WOOT! Nominations end Oct. 10th. The top five finalists will then be part of the vote between October 18th and November 21st. Winners will be announced in January. If you Tweet anything, remember to tag it with #WRALVCAs.
COVID-19 FAQ: Ms. Chambliss developed the following FAQ to help our school community navigate school, exposures and quarantines during this challenging time.
Reminder to Register for the October 2nd SAT: I got a reminder this week to tell students to register. Go online to the College Board website and then to SAT. It will tell you where the assessment will be given and if there are open seats
Parent Portal Issues: For parents who have already set up their Parent Portal but are having trouble with access, here are a couple of tips:
Previous problems accessing student's schedules and grades have been cleared up. please try again.
If you are trying to access your Parent Portal through the App and having difficulty, please try logging on through the school website. If you can use a PC, it works even better. PowerSchool sometimes struggles on Apple products. The App is not supported by PowerSchool and is unreliable at times.
If you do not have a Parent Portal and want one (highly encouraged) please ask for an application by emailing: email@example.com.
Needs Assessment for Parents to Complete: Our Student Services department sends needs assessments to students, teachers and parents at the start of the year to determine the types of support they need to provide during the school year. As we all know, the pandemic has made the need for support both greater and different. Your input is invaluable with respect to planning for the year. Please take the time to complete this assessment to help us better know how to serve our students. Thank you!
Picture Days: We will load reminders in the rotating graphics on our website to remind you that
10th and 11th Grade Picture Day - September 21st
9th, 10th and 11th Makeups - October 28th
