RCHS Drama presents The Addams Family

The Addams Family Poster_Update_edited.jpg

RCHS Drama is excited to present The Addams Family, opening March 1! The Addams Family, Book by Marshall Brinkman and Rick Elice, Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa, is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family–a man her parents have never met.

And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before–keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Showtimes are as follows:

  • Friday, March 1 at 7 pm

  • Saturday, March 2 at 6 pm

  • Sunday, March 3 at 2 pm

  • Wednesday, March 6 at 5:30 pm

  • Thursday, March 7 at 5:30 pm

  • Friday, March 8 at 6 pm

Tickets are on sale at school in the atrium and are available online here. Student tickets are $12 and adult tickets are $20. All shows will take place at Burning Coal Theatre (224 Polk St).

Phoenixwear Store is Open!

Phoenix Parents are partnering with Bay Six to provide a convenient shopping option for RCHS apparel. New this semester, we are excited to offer RCHS t-shirts in a variety of spring colors! 

The online store is open now. If you would like to order, please do so by March 7. Orders will be delivered to RCHS and families will be notified when they are ready to be picked up. To visit the store, click here.

Important notes about Phoenixwear:

  • All items are custom printed or embroidered, so the order takes several weeks to process. Once the orders arrive at RCHS, we will notify you about pick-up times. 

  • Payments are made online at the time of purchase. There are no returns or exchanges. 

If you have any questions about your order, please contact Bay Six at 919-833-3851 or

Donate Food for Teacher & Volunteer Lunches

Every year, Phoenix Parents have a longstanding tradition of providing lunches to our volunteers, drivers, presenters, teachers and staff during Flex Days.

This semester's Flex Days are March 8th and 15th and the Flex Lunch theme is March Madness.

Will you help us "Hoop it Up" by contributing your favorite side dish or "Dribble on Over" and volunteer as we serve lunch at "Game Time"? We are providing chicken tenders as the entree and in need of side dishes, desserts and items you can find at any grocery store! For serving sizes, please try to provide enough for 10 or more servings. See the Sign Up Genius to sign up!

Building Balance: 10th Grade Parent Night

Wednesday, March 6, 6:30 - 7:30 pm

All current parents of 10th-grade RCHS students are invited to join us for an evening of learning how to help your student transition into their junior year of high school. During this program, you will have the opportunity to: 

  • Learn strategies for fostering passion and balance in your student.

  • Hear RCHS students describe the pressures and challenges they encountered during their transition from 10th-grade to 11th-grade, and how they worked through it. 

  • Speak with RCHS faculty and other parents about how to successfully guide your student into and through their junior year at RCHS.


All current 10th-grade parents are strongly encouraged to attend this current-parent-only event. Junior parents received the link to RSVP in their email this week.

It's Time to Order Your 2024 Yearbook!

Order your yearbook online today! Yearbooks are $25 each and will be delivered to school near the end of the school year. We will contact families about the pick-up process later in the spring. Prices will increase on March 2, so be sure to order by March 1!

This year, yearbooks are not included in senior dues. All seniors who would like a yearbook should purchase one online.

Supporting Excellent Education at RCHS

Give a gift to the Phoenix Fund today!

However, these small classes and experienced teachers come at a significant financial cost. Contributions from our school community make it possible for us to provide excellent education to our students today and for years to come. 


Your gifts support Raleigh Charter’s mission of educating knowledgeable, thoughtful, contributing citizens of the world. Your donations give us the ability to: 

  • keep classes small 

  • attract and retain excellent teachers and staff 

  • provide our students and classrooms with essential resources such as Chromebooks and textbooks and basic supplies like dry erase markers and paper

  • pay for our mortgage and building maintenance 

To learn more about how you can support RCHS through the Phoenix Fund, please visit our Giving page.

We are thrilled to celebrate 25 years of Raleigh Charter High School this year! Since our founding, we have been committed to an educational model defined by small classes taught by experienced, passionate, dedicated teachers. We have seen great success using this model and it continues to be a critical part of our mission.
