Parents and Guardians,

As the first semester draws to a close, we will start End of Course Testing for English I and II, US History, and Honors Block Geometry. In order to maximize testing time, there will be a non-traditional day on Wednesday, December 7, 2022. Only students with a scheduled EOC will come to school that day. All other students will have Google Classroom assignments to complete at home.

Because all testing will be done on Chromebooks, the battery life will be extremely important. In that regard, students will need to charge their Chromebooks nightly in preparation for testing, and we would greatly appreciate your help in this matter. The RCHS staff and faculty are especially proud of the progress students have been making and would like to thank you for your dedication and support for our students!

Library Fall Festival

The library held a five day fall festival and had great responses from our students!

    • Games: bowling, hula pumpkin, apple basketball, hole in one, corn hole, and duck pond
    • Daily drawings for prizes
    • Pounds of Little Debbies given out
    • $50 cash prize for the student who guessed the number of popcorn pieces in our pumpkin

Our librarians continuously provide programs for our school that support student engagement and growth. They go above and beyond to provide teachers and students with digital content, supplemental curriculum enrichment, and assistance with research and reports. We are very blessed to have Sabrina Davidson, Melody Ruehling, and Rhonda Harveston at our school.
