Calendar Reminders

Participate in the International Food Fair and Contest
Friday, November 17th, 3:00-4:30 pm

One of the most unique characteristics of Raleigh Charter is its incredible diversity. One way to get a "taste" of all these amazing cultures is through sharing food from that country or region. To do this, as well as support a charitable cause, the Mental Health Awareness Community Workday Group will be holding an International Food Fair and Contest on November 17th at school from 3:00 to 4:30 pm before the artifact museum.

Students in grades 10-12, cultural clubs, and families are encouraged to participate and bring in culturally-authentic, home-cooked dishes. There is a $2 entry fee if you bring food for the contest. We are asking for a $5 donation from those who would like to taste the food and vote. 100% of the proceeds made from entrance fees will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The dishes that receive the most votes will be awarded prizes and school-wide recognition. If you would like to enter a dish into the contest, please click here to sign up.

For the sake of safety, we ask that all foods be labeled with your name and a list of ingredients on a card that we will provide when you arrive. Plan to bring at least 15 servings.

Get Ready for the Annual Artifact Museum!
Friday, November 17th, 4-6 pm

The Artifact Museum, a longstanding annual tradition of the school, is scheduled for November 17, 2017, 4-6 pm. Travel back in time to explore ancient lands through the student-created artifacts on display and listen to students discuss their ancient artifact and its implications. All ninth grade students participate in the Museum and the RCHS community is welcome to attend. More information to come!

Throughout the fall, students work on recreating an artifact and writing a research paper related to their item in their World History courses. Students also spend a portion of their Ex Days and Flex Days preparing for the evening. This year will highlight seven areas of inquiry: Science and Technology, Daily Life, Entertainment and Recreation, Religion and Philosophy, Trade and Economics, Artistic Expression, and Political Systems.

Student exhibits will be displayed in hallways and classrooms throughout the building. All are welcome to visit the Museum and light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Admission is free. Don't miss your opportunity to experience this unique RCHS event!
