Lab & Classroom Schedule

The LMC Reservations Calendar is best viewed in Google here, but a smaller version of the calendar may also be viewed in Edline here.

May 2-6 visitors include:

  • AP Testing all week
  • American History II with Mrs. Michaelson and Mr. Reynolds
  • World History with Mrs. Strietelmeier
  • Novels with Mrs. Flanagan
  • Pins & Needles Club
  • SIP Day--Freshman study hall meeting
  • SIP Day--Grade Cam meeting

QUIET STUDY ZONE in the LMC begins today. We ask for a complete focus on wrapping up final projects, studying for finals, or silent reading. Students who aren't into that will be sent back to your study hall.

The pink-highlighted May calendars are updated with corrections. If you see a green one, please recycle it.

Looking ahead:

  • LMC will be closed to study halls on May 6--computer passes only.
  • Inventory begins today.
  • Except for a few classes' materials, all items are due on Friday, May 13.
  • Seniors should close their LMC accounts before final exams begin.

Step 2: Head to the RTHS Plant Sale this Friday!

There are dozens of gardening books available on eRead Illinois, but the ones below were written for container gardeners like me.

This memoir was meant to be heard

I just finished listening to Kunal Nayyar's Yes, My Accent is Real during my commute and really enjoyed it. It's not a tell-all about The Big Bang Theory, but rather a story of culture shock, parents' unconditional love, and following a dream.

Available as an audio book and eBook from eRead Illinois.

The courtyard tree planted in memory of former RTHS librarian Debby Van Dyke is beautiful this week!
