RHS Weekly Updates | October 2, 2021
Publicaremos la traducción al español en "El Informativo" a principios de la semana que viene.
Hello, Ram Fam,
Here are the updates for this week.
Questions about Homecoming Dance: We have had questions about whether or not we were planning a homecoming dance. At this time due to safety concerns around COVID, we are not. However, I am certainly willing to look at the possibility of a dance should the impact of COVID subside and make having a dance reasonable and enjoyable.
Fine Arts Department Annual Fall Encore: RHS Fine Arts will share Building Bridges, a virtual showcase of student work, on Friday, October 8th from 7-11PM. We will share the link/QR code on our social media platforms. Donations are appreciated and can be made through PayPal.
Support for PTSA: We held our monthly Board meeting this week. We are planning to move forward with the annual Reindeer Days event. I am certain that we will be seeking much assistance from our RamFam to support the event. Please put the first Saturday of November into your calendar and perhaps even the Friday evening before as we will need much help with set-up, managing during the event and then clean-up.
Also, I want to mention membership and no-fuss donations. Because the PTSA was unable to hold Reindeer Days last year, their organization was unable to raise the money we are accustomed to having to support school activities. They would love families to join PTSA, but a no-fuss donation to the organization would actually go further to support activities. If you are so inclined to join or donate, we will accept donations in the office. You can also join PTSA on the PTA MemberHub.

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.
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!
