Holiday Gift Card Drive – Last Day for Online Donations

Online donation to the RHE PTSA Holiday Gift Card Drive will be closed today at 5:00 p.m. Physical gift cards may still be dropped off in the PTSA drop box at the school's main entrance today and Thursday. Please see our flyer for more details on physical gift cards.

Thank you to all the RHE families, teachers, and staff who have already donated! 
PTSA Drop Box Available Today and Thursday for Cards

If you or your student would like to give an RHE teacher/staff a gift, we strongly encourage sending an electronic gift card to their district email, as many are not regularly in the building, but you may also use our drop box at the school's main entrance for cards.

Since it is being used for multiple purposes, please be sure to clearly label anything you drop off

New Volunteer Opportunity! 

In January we will be kicking off a Class/Grade Level Liaison program. This will be a great way to meet more families and build community within your student's class, grade, and RHE as a whole. If you are interested in being a liaison (the commitment is only about two hours per month), please reach out to Kelly Kochman at
