Good morning, Eagles.  We are glad that you are online and reading this!  A video to preview is here.

This week, students will receive a Thought Exchange link to help us better understand what Distance Learning is like from the perspectives of our students.  It is vital that we hear from them, as we want to determine what has been successful and what we can improve upon for the remainder of the year.

Please make it a point to attend Zoom meetings that teachers host.  It is important to us that we stay connected with you!

We miss you.

Mr. Cribari and Mrs. Vanderbosch

Students in seventh grade will be taking the California Healthy Kids Survey on May 11th.  This survey measures school connectedness, school climate, school safety, and student well-being.  The information from the survey helps us plan programs and activities aimed at supporting all students.
If you do not want your child to participate in this survey, please email or call Ms.  Vanderbosch at avanderbosch [at] by Friday May 11th.  A copy of the survey is below:

Hello, RHMS families.  Last week's video had well over 100 students actively email me the Justin Timberlake song title.  We will try to do something fun like that on a weekly basis.  This week, we are working on a message to students embedded in a staff collage.

A new video that describes some of the happenings for this week and a request of you all is here.  (My apologies that the family dog had no desire to be a participant.)

Be safe, and be well.

Welcome to the week of April 20th.  This video helps explain some of the expectations for the week.  There is a challenge for students and a cameo of Milo Cribari at the very, very end.  As a teaser, Milo doesn't like to dance.

This screencast will also help you navigate the Power School updates that were made over the weekend.

On behalf of the RHMS staff, we wish you well, and we encourage you to reach out to teachers with compliments, questions, and concerns.

Be well.

Good morning families...

This screencast will help better undertand some important academic and emotional supports for our community of learners.  An important note is that there will be updates to the PowerSchool portion of this screencast as early as next week, when updates are completed making PowerSchool better reflect Distance Learning.

Should you notice a change in your child's emotional well-being, please click here to reach our lead counselor, Ms. Gotuaco.

Should you have specific questions for your child's teachers, we encourage you to reach out to them.

Thank you for all your support.  We will continue to update you as decisions are made.

Have a safe and happy day.

Periods 3 and 4 from 9:45 to 10:45


Periods 5 and 6 from 11:00 to 12:00

Communicate with others

Household Chores

We thank families for the collective support of our students during this time and encourage you to reach out to teachers if there is a need we may address.
