Most of the time when a parent receives a call from a teacher or administrator, an issue regarding their child needs to be addressed. We believe in positive enforcement and in personal connections. In fact, parents want to know how their child is doing at the school. Open communication between your family and RHMS is essential for your child's success. Research shows that the more parents and teachers share relevant information with each other about a student, the better equipped both will be to help that student achieve academically.
RHMS works with you in constant communication with:
Parent conferences each term
Monthly teacher-parent phone-calls
Monthly coffee & tea socials with the Principal and Faculty
Online Parent Portal which includes news updates and resources for parents
Parent Committee of Volunteers
Meet & Greet Night - New and returning families are invited to join us before the start of the school year for our annual Meet & Greet Night. This is the first opportunity to become acquainted with your child's new teacher(s) before the start of the new school year. Homeroom teachers place a call to the parents of their students to personally introduce themselves and invite the family to this event.
Family Day - One of the many traditions at RHMS is our annual Family Fun Day. On the first Saturday following the start of the school year in September, we have the opportunity to enjoy our campus in a casual way, spend a day with family, renew acquaintances, and make new friends. We plan a variety of fun events and activities for children of all ages, parents, and staff. We feature a wonderful variety of inflatable slides and bouncy castles, obstacle courses, games, and sports. We also feature a DJ to entertain and delight the crowd with interactive fun; face painters, balloon artists, craft tables, and strolling performers who will thrill you with magic, stilt walking, and juggling talents. We are so thankful and proud to be a part of the community. We look forward to giving back each year with an extraordinary experience for all who attend.
Our school would not exist without the passion of an engaged parent community committed not only to the success of their own children, but to that of the whole community of students. This reality has evolved into a culture, embraced by the independent school community that places a high value on the role of family in the success of an individual student. Parents are welcomed into the school and help create a sense of 360 degree support for each child.
