Hello RHE families,


This week our third through sixth grade students completed the ELA portion of the PSSA exams. We are very proud of how hard the students worked the past three days. Testing continues on Monday. The teachers and students have worked hard the entire year. It’s all about being positive which could help in making a difference for our students!


Additionally, thank you to the RHE community and staff for donating to our school wide bingo before Spring Break. While having fun with the bingo games, we were able to raise money for the Bucks County Homeless Education Initiative. We were able to donate $884for the cause!

Field Day Shirts

Field Day Shirts are currently on sale through Friday April 26th. In order to deliver all shirts on time, orders can not be accepted past the 26th, so please order early!


Shirts are $5 each and can be purchased through the school store here. Your student has received their assigned team color from their teacher but they can also be found within the school store.


Field day is Friday May 17th and shirts will be delivered earlier that week.

Field Day Lunch

Field Day this year is Friday, May 17th. In the past, the RHHSA has provided a picnic lunch through Chartwells. This year we have decided to change things up a bit and offer a pizza picnic lunch instead. Each child will be given two slices of pizza (Meglio's), chips, fruit, and water or juice. Students may also bring a packed lunch. They will still bring their beach towels and enjoy their lunch outside. We need a firm count on how many students would like pizza.


Please complete form at the link below for each child in your family by May 3rd.
