Principal's Newsletter -- June 3, 2011

According to my in-box, the chances are ... I owe you an email.

And my aim is to deliver on that by the end of the weekend, via a personal note back or an "faq2.o" sort of update.

In the meantime, magical things keep on going on in this community.

The music concert last evening was tremendous. An electric-guitar-accompanied version of Stairway to Heaven with a trio of 8th grade soloists -- tuba, french horn, sax -- need I say more? Great choral presentations. RHS Jazz Band. By far, the best concert I've seen here in three years.

Tonight the third graders open their part in the Zimbabwean Art Project. They've put in a spectacular amount of work with their teachers and Ms. Helmsworth, and it shows.

The talent show today was punctuated by Graham J. bringing down the house with his version of Free Falling and Trevor's drum solo finale.

The 8th graders pulled off a clean sweep in the tug-of-war today. Everyone is looking forward to Field Day tomorrow.

And, guess what? I have another survey for you. We are currently planning for two ladies soccer teams, two for the fellows as well, and one Lady Falcon volleyball team. We need to verify that interest through this survey. It will also go out to parents of new-to-us students in the rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Please click through to indicate interest in a Fall sport for athletic director Rob Pridemore.

Cheers and I'll see you on the green!
