Spring conferences target 9th and 11th grade advisement students; in the fall, we held 10th and 12th grade conferences.

If you have a child in 9th or 11th grade, please be on the look out for an invitation from your child's advisor to come in for this conference. If you don't get this invitation by mid-March, please let me or another administrator know so that we can work with your child's advisor to make this happen.

RHHS Black History Month Observation

For Black History Month, the RHHS Diversity Club is piecing together an immersive experience as Richmond Hill High School's first Black History Month celebration. This celebration will teach the school community how black history started not with slavery, but with Africa. The Black History Month celebration will include all people connected to the African diaspora, to show the vastness that is the black community. This celebration will include many elements that will demonstrate the assembly’s theme. This includes a performance by the school’s dance team as a traditional African dance and step which is a dance traditional to African American history. There will also be a performance by the Richmond Hill Chorus including “The Black National Anthem” and a musical number written by Nina Simone, “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black”. And as an added bonus, numerous students are putting together an African Diaspora Fashion Show that will include numerous pieces from various African cultures around the world. The celebration will take place in room 517 after school on February 28. All are welcome to attend.

Along the hallways will be an introduction to the concept of the African Diaspora and Pan Africanism. These cultural concepts will be explored in word and pictures. Additionally, we will have a tribute to the historic culture and families of Richmond Hill, when it was known as Ways Station. Other things we have planned include a scavenger hunt and focus on other cultures connected to the African Diaspora.
