1st Friday for Charity

RHPS supports many great charities. In order to keep with our tradition, we have designated 1st Fridays as a way to support our selected charities. Each month you will receive a reminder that will include the name of the designated charity for that month. We ask that on the donation day you send in $1.00. Donations of any amount will be accepted, no donation is too small.

Our first “1st Friday” for charity is this Friday, September 7th, and will be a hat day. Our donations for September will go to CURE Childhood Cancer.

Thanking you in advance for your time and generosity. Whether you are able to give or not, please know we deeply appreciate your dedication to your child and our school.

Lunch Visitors

This week we begin allowing lunch visitors. We encourage all of our diners to enjoy meals prepared at school. Parents joining their child for lunch sit at a visitors’ table in the cafeteria. The BCS Student Handbook states "food from outside restaurants, caterers, and other vendors cannot be brought to students." Due to limited space/seating, students may have only 2 adult visitors at a time.

Visitor lunch price is $3.75.
