Drive for the U.S. Committee of Refugees and Immigrants
RCHS Amnesty International Club
The Raleigh Charter chapter of Amnesty International is hosting a drive to benefit the United States Committee of Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), based in Raleigh. The drive will take place from Tuesday, February 23 to Friday, February 26.

We will collect household and clothing items like new or gently used towels, dishes, and winter coats, as well as new lunch boxes, water bottles, and school supplies. We will also ask for gift card donations to Target and Walmart and monthly bus passes. For a complete list of items, please visit the USCRI web page: http://refugees.org/get-involved/donate-goods/.
What? It's Time for College?
College Counseling

College Counselors have begun one-on-one college planning conferences with 11th graders here at school. A parents-only evening session on February 24, 6-7 pm, will help you learn more about what's ahead on the college planning landscape. This informal session will give you the opportunity to get answers to your college planning questions and to have some fun as you learn ways to manage the stress and negotiate some of the pitfalls that occasionally accompany the college application process. Again, only parents of juniors are invited to attend this session. A link to RSVP has been emailed to all parents of eleventh graders, so please check your email to RSVP!

Update: Thank you for so much interest in the 11th Grade Parent College Information Night. Students should NOT attend this session. They will have their own session during the school day at the upcoming FLEX day in March with College Counselors. Because we have such limited seating, this session on February 24 is only for parents.

Much Ado About Nothing
RCHS Drama
Much Ado About Nothing is a show about love: parental love, passionate love, hidden love, love of power, ego driven love, even the kind of love that would cause one to exclaim, “Well, you are a rare parrot teacher.” The story follows two young couples, one that nearly falls victim to malicious gossip and the other, too proud to acknowledge their obvious affection for one another. Join us for fake deaths, hilariously devious trickery, and nearly insurmountable denial as these characters regale you with their clever minds and stinging insults. And we throw in your favorite contemporary tunes for good measure! We will have you singing and dancing along in your seats with Steampunk soldiers, thwarted lovers, dangerous royalty, and bumbling watchmen!

Show times are as follows:

February 26 & 27 and March 4 & 5 at 7:00 pm
February 28 at 3:00PM and March 3 at 6:00 pm
Senior Night is March 5

Tickets ($15 for adults, $10 for students) will be available in the RCHS lobby during lunch and online starting Feb. 8, 2016. The show will be performed at Burning Coal Theater at the Murphey School, 224 Polk Street.
