RHS Newsletter 12/8
December 8, 2017
It’s the last full school week of 2017; it’s hard to believe we are halfway through the school year. Our goal is to finish the semester strong and focused on academics. Encourage your student to check Skyward, work with teachers to reach their academic goals, and study for midterms!
Students will receive exemption letters Wednesday, December 13th to allow them to plan for midterms. The exemption letters are due to the front office by 4:00pm Friday, December 15th. A copy of the RHS Fall Exam Schedule was sent home with progress reports and is also available on the RHS webpage.
For those of you traveling to the game tonight be safe, cheer loud, and don't forget to bring $5.00 for parking!
*Balfour Class Rings: Rings will be delivered Tuesday, December 12th during lunches. Students can pick up rings that have been paid for or pay the remaining balance. Rings will be held at the RHS office until the balance is paid.
Driver’s Ed: After more research we are excited to offer Driver’s Education through Region 6 beginning this spring. Please see the RHS webpage for more information.
