January 22, 2021
Greetings Huskies,

It has been an eventful week! Rather than summarize the happenings on the local and national level, I’d like to direct your attention to several school communications that will be coming in the NEXT week or so: 

Sign-ups for on-campus activities after February 1 will be sent out next week for students interested in joining small afternoon cohorts meeting from 3:30-5:00 pm throughout the weeks ahead. These activities are in addition to the groups of students returning for academics. 

The 2021-2022 Tuition and Fee Schedule will be sent out Tuesday.

2021-2022 re-enrollment contracts for RHP, Renaissance, and REACH students will be sent on February 1. For families who have applied for financial aid, those contracts will be released on February 19.

Next Friday, look for an overview of the 2021-2022 Course Selection Process.

In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your continued participation in All Things Husky.

International Week 2021
Please join us as we celebrate International Day in a new and different way this year. Each year, many of us look forward to seeing the bright colors of a multitude of country flags as they grace the front lawns of our campus, signaling the start of International Week. While we will not be pulling up to that beautiful sight as we start our week, we will be adding a few new traditions to the mix, along with our crowd favorite, International Week Coffee House.

 Our Music Director, Mr. Rancont, will be working with student performers to bring an international twist to what they perform for Coffee House, while also looking for students to share an aspect of their cultural heritage with the group, such as an artifact, clothing, symbol or story. Please contact Mr. Rancont at TRancont@rollinghillsprep.org if you would like to discuss a performance or heritage moment that you’d like to share during Coffee House. Look for more details in your weekly advisory letter.

Additionally, the Parent Association will be accepting family recipes to be included in an International Recipe Book for all to enjoy. More information regarding submitting heritage recipes will come to you through your grade level parent over the next weeks.
