Midyear Update

Walking the Hallways

On behalf of all of us at RCHS I welcome you to the second semester of our 2018-19 school year. This past fall was filled with many accomplishments by our students and we look forward to even more successes in the months to come. We finished our first round of S.O.L. testing in December and, among other successes, are proud to report that every student in all five of our tested math classes passed their SOL tests – a one hundred percent success rate for our math department!

We continue to monitor attendance closely and strive to make a personal contact with parents for each and every student absence. With winter weather sure to create some havoc with our schedules here and there in the coming months, it is more important than ever to ensure that your children get to school every day possible. Our teachers do great things to help students make up missed work but nothing can replace the original instruction in the classroom.

Improved communication with you, our parents and stakeholders, continues to be a focus of our energy, with our “electronic Tuesday folder” the most recent addition to our efforts to spread the good news about RCHS. Please remember that all parents can access their child’s grades and attendance records at any time via our Powerschool Parent Portal. If you have not set up that access or need help renewing an old connection, please call the school and someone will be more than happy to help you. Important dates and upcoming events can be found on the School’s Website and you can have instant access to all of our athletic event schedules via an email alert system.

Thank you for your support of our school and our students through the year so far and we look forward to more of your valued contributions in the months to come. Whether it be at a sporting event, a school play, or even just in the parking lot as you are dropping off or picking up your child, we look forward to seeing you soon and hope that your child’s educational experience at RCHS is everything you hoped for and more.
