Principal's Welcome Back Message

August 2022

Greetings Parents/Guardians of RSHS Learners,

Welcome back to school. I am so excited to welcome all of you to the 2022-2023 school year. We are so looking forward to our year together and the possibilities for our Learners. 

The 2022-2023 school year will be exciting and challenging, we have several new opportunities  and several traditional opportunities planned for this school year.

Our activities begin on August 15th with Senior and Junior Registration, Learners will be able to come to the school pick up their computer, pay any fees or fines, and pick up their schedule if they need a paper copy. The same will happen on the 16th with Sophomore and Freshmen. The 16th is also our Freshmen orientation day, freshmen parents and student should have received a google form to register for the orientation day through Parent Square.

The official school year will start at 8:00am on Wednesday August 17th, your Learners will be going to their even class periods, and there will be a back to school pep rally in Tiger gym during our Power Hour. Our alternating A and B days will be consistent this year, with all A days on Tuesday and Thursday, and all B days will be on Monday and Wednesday. A days are your Learners odd classes, and B days will be all the even classes.

Part of the many new opportunities here at RSHS will be the creation of our “PIT” organization. This will be our “Parent Involvement Team”, and if you have a Learner at RSHS, we would love for you to be a part of this organization. Our first meeting will be September 7th, in the RSHS auditorium at 6:30 pm. During this meeting we will be looking at how we will organize ourselves, what our mission and vision will be, how this organization will work towards the betterment of our school, and will be a venue to ask questions about what is happening at RSHS. There will be lots of introductions and information handed out during this meeting and we hope to see you there.

You have probable noticed that we have started to call students, “Learners”. This change in our vocabulary allows for us to switch the way we think and act about students in school. In my eyes, the term student is passive, meaning something is being done to them, whereas Learner is a more active approach to education. I believe that learning is a lifetime activity, and our goal is to help our Learners be more active in their learning. So this is just one of many vocabulary changes that will be taking place this school year.

In closing, please feel free to come to the school or call if you have any questions. Our doors will be opening up at 7:45, we cannot wait to see you!!!!!
