RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#WEareRH - Weekly Newsletter - November 8, 2019

Veterans Day

Each year, we have the opportunity and privilege of recognizing and honoring our veterans on November 11th. Monday, November 11th, is a school holiday for all students and faculty in recognition of Veterans Day.


Each year at RHHS, we have a school-wide assembly to recognize Veterans Day. If you would like to watch the RHHS Veterans Day assembly, you may do so through the link below. A special thank you to our guest speaker, Lt. Col. McGrue. To all of the men and women in our armed services, past and present, thank you for your service and sacrifice. We are all able to live better lives because of your selfless commitment to our freedom.

Thanksgiving treat for teachers-calling all bakers

On November 21st, all faculty and staff are treated to a Thanksgiving meal. This is a tradition our Wildcat faculty and staff family have shared for many years.


This year, I'd like to add a sweet touch to this - and have homemade desserts available for teachers. I am looking for bakers who would be willing to make and bring in a pie or dessert to add to our Thanksgiving table. If you bake and would be willing to do this, please click below and let me know of your willingness. Shhhhhh...don't tell the teachers - I want them to be surprised, if possible. Thank you for all you do to support our school and show your care, kindness and love to the faculty and staff!
