Is Your Student Returning Next Year?  - PLEASE READ

·         Your Section Parents are putting together a list of the returning students parent emails.  This will help us keep you informed about everything moving forward. 

·         Did you get the “Dragon Band Audition Dates” email from Mr. Mobley?  If not, please email Mr. Mobley and ask to be added to his list.  This transition period is difficult because he can’t just email through charms so it is easy for names to fall through the cracks.


PROJECT GRADUATION

Project Graduation is an all-night celebration for graduation.  It is a fun, safe way for all the seniors to get together and have a good time on the night of graduation.  It is the last time all the seniors will be together. 

Project Graduation Garage Sale

As a reminder on a different note - If you have decided to spend some time cleaning out your closets or garage, don’t forget Lori Lewis-Conerly is working with the project graduation garage sale.  The next drop off days are  March 7 from 3-5, March 22 from 2-5 and March 25 from 4-7  at the Public Storage (next to RRHS) - Unit 5134.  You can contact Lori Lewis-Conerly lorilconerly@yahoo.com with any questions you may have.

The date of the sale is Saturday March 28 in the parking lot on the north side of the school (by the Shell station).
