We have made it through the 2nd six weeks! Students will receive their report cards next week. Please keep in mind the 3rd six weeks is a busy time as we add additional sports and school activities to our already hectic schedules, take some time off for Thanksgiving, STAAR retesting, and finish up with midterm exams please continue to remind students to monitor grades and attend tutorials. 

On Thursday, November 9th at 1:15pm we will honor Veterans during an assembly in the high school gym. Many of our students will take part in the assembly. We invite you to attend and look forward to seeing you there.

We are having a College Readiness Night Wednesday night at 5:30-7:00pm in the RHS Library this is a great time for parents and students to register for ACT/SAT/TSI exams, apply to colleges/technical schools, get information on financial aid/scholarships, and work on FASFA.

If you have ACT, SAT, PSAT, or AP study materials at home that are no longer being used please consider donating them to the RHS library so we can use them for students who aren’t able to purchase materials.
