Hour of Code      

hourOfCodeRHSsmall.jpgThe Hour of Code is a world wide program that has been completed by tens of thousands of students in over 180 countries. This year, Roswell High school has the honor of participating in this event. The goal is to have every student at Roswell High coding simultaneously. This is done through a special game like system that requires no coding knowledge to play with. Students will complete the three different difficulty levels of the program in the span of one hour. On December 2nd, Roswell High looks forwards to every student getting a chance to discover the basics of coding! For more information, visit our Hour of Code website at https://roswell.tech/.

Dear RHS Parents/Guardians (EOC)

The State Department of Education has opened the End of Course (EOC) test out window.  The window will open Wednesday, September 21 and runs through Friday, September 23.  The test out provides students with an opportunity to “test out” of a course if they are able to score at the “Distinguished Learner” level.  There is a fee of $50 per test, which is refunded if the student achieves the “Distinguished Learner” level.  Completed forms and fees are due by Wednesday, September 7.  Please contact your child’s counselor or see the attached PDF's under Helpful Documents for more information.  Thank you.

RHS JROTC Awards

JrotcAwardWinners.jpg

To share some year-end results as we just got back from our District Awards ceremony.

 

In addition to cadet of the year and runner up this year the Hornet Battalion got word today they scored above a 96 on our inspection this year earning the Honor Unit with Distinction.  This is the big inspection we get once every three to four years.  Furthermore this is the new inspection system in which the mark for HUD was raised from scoring a 90 to scoring a 96.  Across the board, everyone was advised not to expect to achieve HUD with the new system. The kids hit it out of the park.

 

Also, to add on—the Hornet Battalion was awarded the academic streamer for the top Battalion in the District with JROTC academics. 

 

…still not done…next step the leadership team competing at nationals in Washington DC the end of June. 

 

Rising Seniors!
