May News from RHJ!
Posted on March 6th, 2018
Dear Raven Families,
There is so much going on as we enter the last two months of school! This is a long message with very important information…
Sunny weather is fast approaching (okay, maybe not so fast : ) and with it comes issues with the dress code. Please remind your Ravens about the following from our Handbook which you can find on our website:
- PERSONAL APPEARANCE
Students at Rudolph Hennig Junior High should be dressed appropriately for a business atmosphere and the activities they participate in at school. Slogans on all clothing should be positive and appropriate for the school setting. Clothing with negative language or advertising, symbols of drugs or alcohol, obscene gestures, or sexually suggestive sayings are not appropriate. Sunglasses are not permitted to be worn in the school.
All students are expected to wear clothing that covers the shoulders and back, as well as the midriff area and back. Skirts or shorts should cover the upper legs. Tank tops or short tops, which expose an excessive amount of the upper body or cleavage, are not appropriate for school. Tank tops should have straps that are three fingers wide.
All coats and jackets are to be left in school lockers. Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandannas, or have their hood up on their hoodies while in the school building. Students are to remove these items from their head when they enter the school. Shoes must be worn at all times in the school. Students are required to have athletic shoes and suitable attire for every PE and DPA class. Students must change for PE and DPA.
Students who arrive at school inappropriately dressed will be reminded of the dress code, and will be asked to change into more suitable clothing from their locker or will be offered clean clothing to change into.
Thank you for help and support with this.
All students should now be signed up for FLEX for April 25. If they aren’t signed up, please remind them. It’s important they know how to sign up because in about two weeks they will be singing up for their 18-19 electives through this same system. Signing up for FLEX is like practice for signing up for electives. Please check to see what FLEX session your child has signed up for.
Parents of grade 9 students, please know that parent Council is planning a special event for your children, and volunteers would be great! If you can help, let me know and I’ll pass on your name to the coordinators.
Parent Council is also raising funds for the whole school, on your behalf, by selling JERKY. Orders will be in by May 16th, just in time for May long weekend camping trips. Jerky around the campfire? Please print off this order form. Orders are due MAY 7th. Packages come in two sizes for $10.00 and $20.00. Support our Ravens!
April 27 is a PD Day for staff and there is no school for students.
The Grade 9 LA Part A PAT and the Grade 7&8 LA Part A Final Exam will be written on May 8 this year. Teachers are prepping the students for these exams and parents can help out as well, simply by having your child write a paragraph a day and possibly a longer, one page story or article on the weekends. The more practice the better!
May 16 is our track day. You can come cheer on our Ravens at the Fort High field. Rain out Day is May 25.
There is a 5 day long weekend on May 17, 18, and 21. There is no school for this Victoria Day long weekend. Do you have your jerky ready to go? : )
Our next Parent Council meeting will be on May23 at 6pm in the school library.
As always, please encourage your child to read as much as possible!
