Weekly Newsletter - November 22, 2019

Hello RHE families,


I hope that you had a wonderful week! Please be sure to review our schedule for next week. There is a lot of new and important information in this updated newsletter.


If you are interested in purchasing RHE spirit wear, please be sure to do so by Saturday.


On Wednesday, November 20th, countywide technical issues produced an all-day Internet outage across our district. As a result, the Administration is pushing back the expected Friday, November 22nd report card release date to provide teachers with additional time to finalize and enter grades. Report cards will now go live and be available for viewing by families in HAC on Monday, November 25th at 4:00 pm. Thank you for your patience.


In addition, please take a moment to read the following letter regarding the Bridges in Mathematics program. It provides information to parents regarding how to review and understand information on report cards as it relates to students' progress in math. The letter can be found here - Bridges Mathematics Letter - Report Cards.

The Mystery Motivator this round was a free snack in the cafeteria. We have many students working hard to Be Safe, to Be Respectful, and to Be Responsible. I am so very proud of all of our students!

Parking Lot Safety

We are in full swing to the school year. That means we have a lot of before and after school activities. Please be alert, careful, and cautious when driving through the school parking lot.


  • Be sure to pay close attention to the drop off and pick up procedures sent by the supervisor of each group.
  • RHE is the home of the Champions Before/After Care and one of the Champions Kindergarten Enrichment programs. Our students in those programs must be signed in by a parent each morning. Therefore, parents and students will be parking and walking through the lot to the building. Please be careful and cautious when dropping off students for other school events, practices, and clubs.


I know that our lives are incredibly busy. Parents are trying to get to work after they drop off their child, and there are activities for children that take place right after school. But the welfare of children supersedes everything. Thanks for your help in keeping the children safe.
