Back to School Night For Parents
Wednesday, September 3, 6:15 to 8:15 pm
Please join us for Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 3 from 6:15 to 8:15 pm. Parents will have the opportunity to follow their student's schedule, meet their teachers, and learn about their classes. At the end of the night, PASTA will be providing light refreshments and a chance to talk about opportunities to volunteer and support the school.
Please look out for the blue Back to School Night schedule that will be coming home with your student. Bring that with you on Back to School night so that you'll know where to be and when to be there. See you on September 3!
Please use our Washington Street entrance and drive counter-clockwise (carpool direction) around the school when coming to Back to School Night. If the school lot fills up, parents may park in the Methodist lot or on Washington Street.
Logging in to the RCHS Website

Your RCHS login can also be used to view events on our calendar which are not open to the public and to view contact information in the Parent/Student directory. Parent userids are also vital to the success of our online sign-up system for Flex and Community Workdays. Each parent is assigned their own userid. Please note the following information concerning RCHS logins.

College Counseling: Junior Night
September 10th at RCHS
Please join us for this ever-popular kick-off session to learn useful tips and to jumpstart your college search process. Representatives from Davidson, Duke, Elon, NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill will conduct this panel discussion for juniors and their parents about the college scholarship and admission process. For your convenience and due to seating capacity limitations of our chosen venue (The Methodist Home Office Building at 1041 Washington Street as you enter our parking lot via the carpool lanes), we are offering two different session times with identical formats either at 3:30pm or 5:30pm. So you only need to register for one session time and include the total number of people attending in your party.
Register for one session either at 3:30pm or 5:30pm here:www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C044BACA82DA0F49-junior
