Message from the Superintendent
Good Day to the RFH School Community,
One friendly reminder for next week:
- The RFH 8th Grade Open House will take place on Thursday, December 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the RFH Auditorium. The flyer for this event can be accessed by clicking here.
As we approach Thanksgiving this week, I am reminded of words once spoken by the Roman philosopher, Marcus Tullius Cicero: "Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, it is the parent of all others".
We have much to be thankful for at RFH in terms of our amazing students, supportive families, talented teachers, dedicated administrators, and board members who ethically pursue the best interests of our district. I am most grateful to you all!
Wishing our entire RFH School Community a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Anne R. Facendo, Interim Superintendent
