ACADEMIC AWARDS DAY - THURSDAY, MAY 13
Next Thursday we will be holding the first ever Academic Awards Day at RCHS. Due to COVID restrictions still in place we are unable to host large events as we usually do. With that being said, we still plan to hold events that are student centered and available for viewing by parents and the community. All events will be held in the Richland County Performing Arts Center. They will be live streamed and photographed by RCHS faculty and students. Please see the schedule below for details:
8:45 - Freshman ERFAE Awards
9:45 - Sophomore ERFAE Awards
10:45 - Junior ERFAE Awards
12:00- Senior ERFAE Awards and Richland County Honor Society*
2:00 - Senior Awards Program**
*Seniors being inducted into the Richland County Honor Society and/or receiving an award or scholarship will receive a formal invitation through the mail. Please let us know if you have any questions.
**Parents are encouraged to view the Senior Awards Program via live stream, but those that would prefer to attend will be allowed to sit in the upper balcony so long as capacity limits are not exceeded.
No school for all in-person and remote students on May 17, 2021 for a remote learning planning day.
Reminder for students that this Friday is PSAT and Illinois Science Assessment day for Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors. We will have the room assignments posted tomorrow morning on the bulletin board in the Student Commons. Please check it out. On Thursday afternoon you will report there to do some test prep at 12:30 and then on Friday we will report to class at 8:00 a.m. Testing will begin promptly at 8:10.
Don't forget to come out and support the CEO students at the Tradeshow this evening. They will be open for business in the new Student Commons at RCHS from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Hope we see you there!
The Girls Track meet scheduled for April 28th @ Mattoon has been cancelled.
Today's softball game vs. Edwards County has been moved up to a 2:00 pm start time. JV will follow with innings after the varsity game. Please come out and support your Lady Tiger Softball program.
Important for all. Please read.
Next Friday, May 7th is going to be an assessment day for Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors. The Freshmen and Sophomores will be taking the PSAT and Juniors will take the Illinois Science Assessment. That is an early release day (8:00-11:00) so there is just enough time to complete these tests.
We need all students to attend and do their best. These tests are required, so we will be doing makeups on a regular school day if a student misses that day.
Please make every effort to be here on time and ready to go. Bring your Chromebook to class.
Seniors will have a remote learning day on the 7th. Please check with your teachers ahead of time and get on Schoology to get the plan for each of your classes.
