Students are reminded that most English classes, as well as AP (Advanced Placement) classes have summer reading assignments. Typically, the only Summer reading assignment for incoming freshmen is English.
Looking for the list of books you'll need to purchase for the 2013-2014 school year? That information will be available on the website in mid-July. RCHS and Quail Ridge Books will not have any book information available before then.
Special note: AP US History students - there are still a few sets of books available to buy FROM THE SCHOOL. The school will only be open on selected days during the summer, so please call before you come to make sure someone is there to assist you.
For New Students Beginning in August
If you missed the math assessment given in the Spring, please plan to take the assessment on Monday, August 12 at 3pm. All students attending RCHS must take the math assessment prior to starting school at RCHS. This test provides our math teachers with information about how to best work with our students. It also helps students identify any topics that they need to review. Thank you!

Parking spaces are still available for purchase. Download or pick up an application form from the office and turn in a physical copy to the office as soon as possible.

SOOTS' 7th Annual Benefit Concert Raises over $1800 - Thanks for a Great Time
On a windswept and rain-soaked evening, those who braved the elements were rewarded with one of SOOTS' best concerts ever. Thank you to the Raleigh Charter and greater Sustaining Roots Music community for helping our students raise over $1800 to assist aging musicians.
The night began with an energetic set from Reed Turchi in the style of Mississippi Fred McDowell. Reed's slide guitar also accompanied Big Ron Hunter whose effusive "happy blues" brought smiles to everyone in the Long View Center. When Justin Robinson and the Mary Annettes took the stage in full costume - an Amelia Earhart meets Romantic Gothic fashion - the student-led dance party got in full swing. Robinson kept the party alive with a new repertoire, including this piece based on James Bonds' most dedicated love, Money Penny.
Robinson also treated everyone to a debut solo on his full-sized harp. We were mesmerized, and the smiles are evident in this photo of our gang, current and SOOTS alums with our musicians arm in arm. Congratulations to all our students who made this event happen, especially our tireless leaders: E. Blondin, T. Candiloro & T. Hayes. What a night.
Charles Montague, SOOTS Founder & Faculty Sponsor
Victories and Challenges
We are in the middle of the annual academic competition season, and we have great successes to share.
As you may know, our Ocean Sciences Bowl will be participating in the national competition on April
18-20 in Milwaukee. Our We the People Team will compete at the national level on April 26-30 in
Washington, D. C. In addition, our Quiz Bowl Team has qualified for and been invited to two national
competitions. Finally, our Science Olympiad Team is preparing for the state-level competition, with the
hopes of moving to the national event.
Opportunities for Student-to-Student Tutoring
AcademicsOn the tutoring club website, students can sign up to be tutors or peers. The website is also accessible from this page by hovering over the "Students" tab and clicking on "Tutoring Opportunities." Raleigh Charter Tutoring Club works by matching tutors and peers based on what subjects tutors would like to teach and what subjects peers need help in. The tutors and peers can then decide when they want to meet up. It will often be one-on-one sessions which can occur during lunch, before school, after school (in the collaborative study hall), in Math Lab, etc. We recommend that tutors and peers meet at least once a week.
