Parent Information

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!


Just a reminder, all due dates are on this google site. Check the calendar for assignments that will be counted for a daily grade, as well as exam dates.


Students will need a copy of Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn for Teens by November 30 in class. If you did not order from me, please be sure your child is prepared by having their book when we return from Thanksgiving.


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.
