News & Updates

November 2021

Principal's Message!

Welcome to the November issue of our Monthly Wave. It is hard to believe that we are almost through the first quarter of 2021-2022 school year. As you may have heard, we will be seeking input from all stakeholders regarding plans for a 9 period day for next school year. Parent, faculty, staff, and student surveys will be sent out soon. We are looking forward to receiving your input.

Please take a moment to peruse our newsletter, and I hope to see you at some of our upcoming events. I would also like to invite you to view our daily announcements. Announcements are emailed to students each morning and are available for you to view as well by clicking the link below. Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

RHS Pep Band

The Mighty Blue Waves Pep Band, under the direction of Mrs. Lisa Talmage, has had a tremendously successful 2021 Season. The 50-member-strong group hit the ground running the very first day of school and didn't look back. The newly formed RHS Drumline showed off their skills and took the band to a whole new level. They played for the home Varsity Football games, rocked the Pep Rally and even played for one of the Varsity Boys Soccer games. Along with playing in the stadium stands, they performed various tunes for the half-time shows including Hawaii Five-O, Crazy Train, Star Wars, Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll, Ghostbusters and Thriller. They look forward to doing it all again next year!

The Art club, Hispanic Leadership Club, NJROTC and other clubs assisted in transforming classrooms into rooms with displays and activities, as well as creating a carnival in the cafeteria with games and prizes. Children were able to exit through a spooky walk, and take home a pumpkin.
