RVHS Weekly Newsletter

Friday May 7th 2021


Hello Eagle families,

We are definitely in the stretch run for this year. Our 4th credit finishes on May 12 and we begin our 5th and last credit on May 13. Four weeks left... 16 days on campus... 5 days asynchronously.

The school board passed a resolution in March which allows a senior whose ability to graduate has been significantly impacted by the pandemic graduate using the state's minimum requirement of 130 credits. In order to qualify for the reduce graduation requirement, the senior and parents must meet with the school counselor and administration to consider the student's unique circumstances. Not all student's will qualify. Those who are currently on track to graduate will not.

If you believe that your senior may qualify for the resolution, please schedule a meeting with Ms. Novoa, senior counselor, through this link Calendly. The resolution criteria will remain intact until the end of summer school school, July 9, 2021.

I encourage students to attend everyday, reach out to teachers to make up missing credits. The end is very near and coming quickly. It is time to Finish Strong.

We got this!

Tim Dignan

Mia Calhoun

Mia is an outstanding student with a bright personality that always brings a smile to your face. Hardworking and kind, this is one student that qualifies as student of the week.

Keiya Jones

Keiya is the model student in 1st period. Always early, always at the front of class paying attention, always getting work completed. You can tell that this student has the mindset that high school is important. She is putting in the work and I'm sure it will pay off with academic success by the end of the year.

June Mc Cluan

June does a super great job and goes the extra mile many times. She is pleasant, kind and does her best not to make a big deal out of anything. She is also very intelligent and creative. June is one of those students that if you aren't careful, you don't notice how awesome they really are. June was also selected for the Skateshop giveaway for the month of April and won a new skateboard from Outcast Skateshop and Mr. Gonzalez for her excellence in art.

Employee Of The Week

Jose Arenas

Mr. Jose Arenas, our facilities manager came to the “Ranch” a few years back. He has 27 years of experience and had previously been working in facilities at Mt. San Jacinto college. We were very fortunate to hire Jose because he was a very sought-after employee with glowing recommendations. When Mr. Arenas isn’t making our campus look amazing, he enjoys growing tomatoes and chilies in his garden, spending time with his family, and volunteering in outreach ministries with his church. Mr. Arenas has three sons and four grandchildren that brighten up his days.

Jose has a huge heart for helping people and that makes him fit right in with RVHS and our population. He is always smiling and ready to help out with anything. You will never hear him complaining because as he puts it, “there are too many things to be thankful for”. He is a man of high standards and it shows in his work. He has been an instrumental part of the school, especially during COVID. He spent hours and days rearranging classrooms, computers, HUBs, and desks, making sure that everything is up to code. Additionally, he taped arrows and posted signs all around campus. He is an incredibly hard worker who loves to help. Thank you Jose for all you do for us. You are the employee of the week!
