Parent Information

If you haven't already, please take the time to respond to this parent survey.


We could use donations of candy! Big kids love candy treats, too, but it is EXPENSIVE buying for 186 students. It would be extremely helpful if some parents could donate some big bags of miniature candy bars, skittles, m&ms, dum dum lollipops, etc. Your donations are appreciated!


RCHS now has Thursday night academic support from 4-6 pm. Teachers are available from every subject to help students in need of assistance. If your child is is struggling in certain areas, then I would encourage them to attend.


If you are not subscribed to the classroom reminds and would like to be, send me an email and I will send you the information.


As always, feel free to email me if you have any questions.
