Raleigh Charter Supergroup Launches the Phoenix Fund
Support RCHS by donating today!


This August, to launch the Phoenix Fund, a supergroup of RCHS alumni, students, faculty, and staff joined forces to write, direct, and produce our new music video. A combination of talent and star-power like this has not been seen since 1985! We hope the energy and talent expressed in this video will inspire you to support our community of engaged learners and contributing citizens.

The Phoenix Fund is our annual appeal for operational support. It pays for today. Your contributions help us to keep classes small and well-supplied. Generous giving to the Phoenix Fund ensures students can benefit from new textbooks, a low class and school enrollment, and upgraded science and technology equipment. Our 2017-2018 goal is to raise $325,000 by March 30, 2018. This goal is easily attainable with strong support from the RCHS community. We ask everyone - every family, every year - to contribute.

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

Donate Food for Flex Days
RCHS Community


Do you have a tried and true family recipe you would love to share with others?
Here are two different ways you can help fuel our Flex Days!

Donate food for our Southern History Flex Day Activity:
We are looking for donations of authentic southern food for Ms. Klein and Mr. Montague's Southern History Flex Day programs on September 22. If you have a dish you'd like to share, please sign up here.

Flex Day Teacher and Volunteer Lunch:
Phoenix Parents are generously providing lunch for our teachers, staff, drivers, and volunteers who will be helping out on Flex Day. If you would like to contribute a salad, soup, or dessert, please click here to sign up.

Flex Days Drivers
RCHS Community

Thank you to the many parents who have volunteered to drive for our upcoming Flex Days on 9/15 and 9/22! Your support makes our programming and activities possible.

It is always helpful for us to have back up drivers to provide additional coverage, if needed. If you would like to sign up to be back up driver for either or both days, please send an email to community@raleighcharterhs.org.

Tech Benefits
The Phoenix Fund supports technology in our classrooms.

The Phoenix Fund supports our operational budget. Thanks to last year's donations we were able to purchase two new Chromebook carts for classroom use. They are being used as lab notebooks in some science classes and for algebra exercises in some math classes. With the carts and our labs, we now have seven spaces for students to use during class time.

We appreciate your support in bringing technology to our classrooms!

Ordering Information and Senior Photo and Ad Reminders
Yearbook

The time has come to begin thinking about your senior portrait for the 2018 yearbook! Outlined below are some guidelines and suggestions for students in the past.

Portraits are not required to be head shots. The picture should include only the senior (no other people). The final picture should be full color and in focus, and the resolution should be at least 300 dpi. Pictures should be at least 3”x5” for final printing.

Pictures may come from any photographer, amateur or professional. If you would like your portrait to be taken professionally, some students use Prestige Portraits, a company that is affiliated with LifeTouch, the company that takes our underclassmen yearbook portraits. Their information can be found here. Additionally, we have had many photographers advertise in our yearbook over the years, and we always encourage members of the Raleigh Charter community to patronize businesses that support our yearbook. In the past couple of years, Catherine Davis Photography, Willa Stein Photography, and Renee Sprink Photography have advertised in our book.

Keep in mind that pictures are NOT required to be taken by a professional photographer.
Senior Portraits should be sent to yearbook.editors@raleighcharterhs.org by October 16.
