A Message of Gratitude From School Leadership
Dear RCHS Community, As the final days of the 2023-2024 school year come to an end, we are thrilled to announce the results of our first-ever RCHS Day of Giving. Historically, when we have made our needs known to our greater school community, our community has responded with high levels of participation, and we are excited to say that this has been true once again. Through emails, our Alumni Social, our Senior Parent Night, and newsletters, we have highlighted our Day of Giving, and you have responded in an amazing way. $27,783 in total to the Phoenix and Foundation Funds - $10,000 was our goal. 127 total # of gifts - 100 was our goal. 20 first-time donor gifts 25 alumni gifts - part of 61 total alumni gifts this year! Your contributions support both our essential operations and long-term goals. This year, donations made it possible to Offer more professional development opportunities such as AP workshops Bring in an external facilitator to assist us with our diversity and equity goals Provide our faculty with bonuses to improve our compensation package Support broadening our Flex and Community Work Day programs Move us closer to paying off our mortgage in order to increase teaching salaries Economic challenges from inflation to increased interest rates have made this year particularly difficult from a financial perspective. However, at $260,000 raised, we have met 80% of our Phoenix Fund goal. We appreciate the support of this small, dedicated community in helping us reach this level, and if you weren’t able to donate by the May 10 date, any gifts received by June 15 will still help us reach our 2022-2023 Phoenix Fund goal! Although we have not reached our initial Phoenix Fund goal and will need to tighten our belts a little bit across the board, we believe that our financial position remains solid and secure. With careful budgeting, we will weather this downturn and hope to return to a strong position next year. Thank you to everyone for your continued engagement in our school community, and remember it’s never too late to give! Sincerely, Paul McSorley, Chair, RCHS Board of Directors Lisa Huddleston, Principal
