  • Today (March 4th), is the national campaign for Spread the Word to End the Word. Spread the Word: Inclusion is a global campaign working towards inclusion for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It started as Spread the Word to End the Word in 2009, a campaign to encourage people to pledge to stop using the word "retard" in a derogatory manner, but broadened its goals in 2020 to stop all derogatory words that do not promote inclusion and diversity. There will be a table in the commons areas during all lunches that will allow everyone to take the pledge to use more inclusive language. Please stop by today and join RHS as we promote inclusion. 


  • There will be a STEM Club meeting today (Wednesday (3/4)) at 3:00 pm in Mr. Murtha's room. It should not last more than an hour.
