RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#WEareRH - Weekly Newsletter - October 4, 2019

Thank you all for an amazing Homecoming 2019 week. Our students and staff truly showed their creative talents and school spirit this week, from dress-up days, to lunch activities, to the parade and pep rally. Parents - thank you for your support in all the preparations for this week. We would not be able to put all of this together without your help.


We would like to remind everyone that we are back to our normal routines next week. Please make sure your child is coming to school in dress code. Hats, crop tops and shorter than fingertip length shorts should be saved for times outside school hours. We are looking forward to another great week at RHHS!

PSAT - October 16, 2019

On Wednesday, October 16th, we will administer the PSAT to all 10th grade students and registered 11th grade students. All 9th grade and 11th grade students not registered to take the test, will stay with their advisors in an assigned room until the test ends. These students will complete the YouScience career assessment and participate in Monique Burr Teen Safety lessons delivered by our counselors. The timeframe for the PSAT is 7:30-11:35. Students will report directly to their assigned advisor classrooms for YouScience activities as well as PSAT testing.

Digital Learning Day for Seniors - October 16, 2019

Wednesday, October 16, 2019, will be a digital learning day for seniors. Seniors will not be expected to attend school on campus, but instead will complete assignments for the day from home.


Assignments will be posted by your child's advisor to their advisement’s Google Classroom. The assignment must be completed no later than 3pm, October 16, in order to get credit for the digital learning day. If the assignment is not completed, your child will be marked absent for October 16, 2019 and will not be allowed to exempt their exams at the end of the semester. Assignments should be posted to Google Classroom by October 9th. Seniors may choose to complete the assignments before October 16th if they would like.


We are excited to make this option available to the class of 2020, and we hope that we have 100% completion of the assignments.
