We are off to an amazing start here at RHS. The energy and excitement in the building has been great! During walkthroughs, formal observations, and general circulation of the building, I have seen an increase in student-driven activities, group assignments, peer-to-peer instruction and problem based-learning. Our fall sports teams are in full swing and having extremely successful results.
We have a very busy October planned. On October 10 the junior class will be taking the PSATs and the sophomore class will be taking the PreACT. The Guidance Department will be hosting a Financial Aid Night and senior parent and student night in the auditorium on October 23 beginning at 7PM. We will be honoring outstanding academic achievements by our students at the Board of Education Awards ceremony on October 22. I invite all 7th and 8th grade parents to our Open House on October 25. The first PTSA meeting will be held on October 9.
Quarter one benchmarks will begin on October 29 through November 1.
