News and Notes
Just a few important items to bring to your attention as we wrap up the month of September, welcome Fall Weather and finish up the 1st Quarter of the school Year. Graduation date/time/venue has been confirmed and we will return to Glynn County Stadium for the 3rd year in a row! This venue was great for our class of 21 & 22 and look forward to the same exciting experience for the 2023 Class of Wildcats! With regards to Seniors, you will notice that our counselors are feverishly working to meet with all seniors to ensure they are on track for graduation, have considered post-secondary plans and have all their needed resources.
Additionally, the month of October brings Advisor/Advisee Conferences for our 10th and 12th grade students. Be on the lookout for communication from your child's advisor; this is an opportunity that you will want to engage in as a parent to ensure your child is on track with regards to HS credits, engaged in activities, doing well in their current classes, etc.
Lastly, please mark your calendars for Fall Break ahead which will occur October 10th-October 11th. Following Fall Break is our Annual PSAT/Digital Learning Day. For those of you new to RHHS, this day is a digital learning day for Juniors (Not Taking PSAT) and Seniors; while our 9th grade students will be engaged in advisement activities to include Child Safety Matters Curriculum (MBF) and 10th Graders will be taking the PSAT.
With the 1st quarter winding down, I encourage you to check in on your child's grades and attendance, encourage them to plug into an extracurricular and continue to support them like crazy as you always do! We really do have amazing students and when you couple that with caring and supportive stakeholders we can move mountains at RHHS!
Have a restful and relaxing weekend!
See ya, love ya, bye!

Counselors have now started senior meetings! Our goal is to deliver 1:1 guidance on postsecondary planning and to provide resources specific to your student’s post-graduation goals. Seniors can sign up with their assigned counselor by accessing the links below. They will also receive an email prompting them to schedule their appointment. Senior meetings are held during school hours and students will leave with resources and tools to continue their journey to success after graduation!
