POIC + RAHS Black History Month Scavenger Hunt
This February we are excited to partner with you in celebration of Black Culture, History and Accomplishments. For centuries African American and Black people have contributed to American Culture and achievement. From NASA (Katherine G. Johnson) to Military (Tuskegee Airmen) and Sports (Wilma Rudolph) to Social Impact (Greensboro Sit-In) and Education (Brown vs Board of Education) African and Black peoples’ contributions to history in this country is rich and broad.
This February we are sponsoring a scavenger hunt on campus to promote African and Black American contributions and achievements in history. You should have received a list of the questions that each student will be working on answering during this month-long Black History and Culture celebration and we invite you to discuss these heroes, events and heroines with your child.

Annual Successful Schools Survey
Thank you to all of the Families that have already completed the survey. We are at 20% family responses. Our goal this year is to reach 80% survey completion rate amongst our families. Students are working towards school incentives such as a pajama day and a dessert party if we are able to reach this goal.
Please support our school by taking time to fill out the 2023 Panorama Successful Schools Survey. This survey is a tool for us to collect your valuable input and feedback regarding how we can best serve our students and improve our school community. The survey is completely anonymous.
If you would like a paper copy of the survey, please let the front office know or your student's teacher. If you have any questions about the survey, please visit this website or reach out to our front office. The survey can be completed in 5 district supported languages, English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali, Russian, and Chinese.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your perspective and feedback.
