Happy New Year & Welcome Back!

As we start our new semester, we have many learning opportunities planned for our students. Our teachers are collaborating to ensure that each student's needs are being met. We are expecting huge gains in student learning as we move forward this year.


Please take a moment to read about the upcoming events at RHS. If you have any questions or need anything, please contact the school or me.


Thank you,

Mrs. Astin Sarrell

Mid-Year Assessments

Students will take mid-year assessments January 7-20, 2016. Prior to the break, students met with me to discuss their scores from August. Each student has an individual goal for the mid-year tests. Students are also working together as a group to earn class rewards. Please talk to your child about his/her individual goals.

How can I help my child?

The following websites also offer assistance for parents:

Math Strategy: Number Lines

Number lines are great to use even in middle grades as students begin to work with equations and negative numbers.

Reading Strategy: Close Reading

When reading at home with your child, use the following strategies to help him/her understand what they are reading. Students are using these strategies in reading classes, as well as science and social studies classes.
