RHS Newsletter 12/8

RHS Newsletter

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!

Go Tigers!
