The John Baylor Prep organization has invited our students to participate, free of charge, in the live review session at Millard West April 23rd from 6:30-8:30 in Room #164.  Students should take their review binders with them to the sessions.  
Juniors will take their ACT test on Tuesday, April 28, beginning promptly at 8:00am.  To do their best, students are encouraged to get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast (free for Juniors in the cafeteria with their student ID), and arrive a little early so they find their test site without having to rush.  Also, please note that all students will be required to either leave electronics at home or check them in prior to entering their test room.  This is a standard procedure from ACT that RHS must honor.  Students will have an open campus lunch period following the test (lunch will still be available at RHS), followed by a shortened class schedule beginning again at 1:00.  
Registration for the Summer session of Driver's Education will be May 5th and 6th from 7:00pm - 8:00pm in the commons area.  Registration forms with more information are now available in the main office.

The Swimming Competency Test will be administered by Mr. Hartfield on Saturday, April 25 at 11:45am at the RHS swimming pool.  
Students MUST contact the high school office to pre-register for this option.  There is no advance instruction to prepare and no instruction will be given during the test.  Students should plan to be in the pool for 45 minutes to one hour to complete the testing.  
Reminder, upon passing this test you will have the swimming designation waived from your PE credit requirements only NOT the actual 2.5 credit hours.  You must still take 20 credit hours of PE.
