News and Notes from the Principal
The past 18 months have encouraged us as educators to truly "think outside the box" while developing new strategies/modalities to meet the needs of each student! While the 20-21 school year taught us a lot about ourselves in the field of education, we prevailed and through this we were able to continue to #BTH as a staff focused on student success! #BetterTogether
While school officially ended in May, the administrative staff has worked tirelessly to plan and place students in classes for the upcoming school year. These schedules for students are available via PowerSchool for you to review and plan for the year ahead. Please see the information in the newsletter below for additional details regarding scheduling as well as many other topics of interest.
With a new year and steady growth come new faces to RHHS! We are pleased with the high-quality staff members that we have been able to add to our educational family! We too think that you will reap the benefits of these fine educators in the months and years to come! The thing that stands out the most and truly draws quality staff to RHHS is the community support and stakeholders like you that have a vested interest in the overall success of the school district. Thank you for your unwavering support.
When it comes to support, we are well aware and planning for our students to return to a supportive RHHS environment! As educators, we understand that our job is much deeper than the content and truly take great pride in creating opportunities and providing high levels of support for ALL students! We stand by this pledge and look forward to working with you this upcoming year! After all, we are #BetterTogether as we #BTH at Richmond Hill High School.
