The funds from this year's Dance for Change will be used to create a "Bulldog Bank" to assist our community with needs during times of hardship. RCS students are encouraged to recognize needs in the community and have a resource to assist. For instance, a neighbor who is sick and travels to Durham for treatments may need a gas card, a friend of the family who has to stop working to care for a family member may need a grocery gift card, or the homeless may need a gift card to Tricia's for a meal. Forms are in Mrs. Coleman’s room for students or staff to request funds to help someone. A committee will review submissions, keeping the requester and the person in need confidential, to determine the amount and how the assistance is given. Email Mrs.Coleman at email@example.com with questions, or students may stop by her room.
The RCS Seventh Grade, Eighth Grade and High School Bands will perform their annual spring concert on Tuesday, May 7, at 7 p.m., in the RCS multipurpose room. This is a free concert. Come out and hear your wonderful RCS musicians.
Please submit Box Tops for Education before the end of the school year, so we can get one more check this year. Ask friends and family to help out, too!

Any high school student who has missed over nine days in a class needs to complete and turn in a form in order to get permission to make-up time-for-time. If forms are not turned in by the due date or if they are not approved by the Attendance Committee, a student's semester grade in the class will be dropped to a 59. Forms should be turned in to Ms. King (Room 219).
