This week, the RMHS counseling team has been visiting all 9th, 10th, and 11th grade English classrooms to talk to students about registration for the 2020-2021 school year. One-one-one meetings with each student will take place beginning March 23rd, after students have a chance to attend the elective fair, and speak with their parents & teachers about which classes to take next year.
The RMHS Elective Fair took place this week. Many teachers came out to promote their classes and inform students about their choices for their classes for 2020-2021. Thank you to everyone who participated.
