Great news Spartans! 97% of students attended on September 26, 2018 the day we were promoting 100% attendance day VS the day after back to school night last year only 96% of students attended school. Yes, even a 1% increase can make the BIGGEST difference. Remember, together we can all make a difference in succeeding in our attendance! Great job Spartans!!
The Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) has presented to all Senior English classes throughout the week of September 17, 2018. With additional help from the College Site Coordinators at Fillmore and Channel Islands High Schools students were informed about the college application timeline. They were reminded about important college application due dates, financial aid, and test dates. In addition, EAOP coordinated Higher Education Week (HEW) for Seniors, over 25 colleges and community organizations were present. This was an opportunity for students to ask any additional questions they have before they start applying to schools. All Seniors who are eligible to apply to a four year college and university are being recognized this week and the following week.
A special thank you to all of the Counseling Team, RMHS Teachers, Staff, and Administration, and the Early Academic Outreach program team for all of their support. – Karen Correa, EAOP College Site Coordinator
