2016-2017 RHE Calendar Now Available

We’ve updated the RHE Calendar for the 2016-2017 school year.

·      Please find it attached.

·      It’s also available on our PTA website: http://www.rhpta.com/faqs/calendar


Help RHE When Back-To-School Shopping!

RHE-specific school supply lists along with many other helpful resources are now available on our newly updated PTA website. Click the following link to access: www.rhpta.com


Amazon Smile

·      We have an Amazon Smile account for RHE. This means when you shop for school supplies through Amazon Smile, our school receives 0.5% of every eligible purchase!

·      Click the following link to shop Amazon Smile: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/75-2517018


Office Depot

·      When you shop Office Depot for school supplies, please provide our RHE Back-To-School Program ID #70096986 when you make a purchase, and RHE will receive 5% in credit back for free supplies. (The cashier should have a list of school IDs to look it up, if you ask.)


Calling All Volunteers!

All school volunteers must have a background check at the start of every school year. Get a jump on it now so you are ready to volunteer as early as week 1!

·      If you had a background check last year, the process should be easier because you are already in the FWISD system.

·      Click the following link to get started: Volunteer
