TIPS FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS

  • Opt in to receive daily or weekly emails from Google Classroom about assignments your student missed, assignments due soon, and class announcements/homework. Email Ms. Clifton if you'd like to be added to this.

  • Opt in to receive the Little RHAMbler newsletter that is emailed to parents and students every Friday from journalism@rhamschools.org. This newsletter features important announcements about clubs, field trips, counseling, and classes.

  • Let your children see you reading - books, newspapers, magazines, articles.

  • Encourage your children to be problem solvers. Teach them it's okay to fail and make mistakes, because that's one of the best ways to learn.

  • Instill in your children the value of education. Children in many parts of the world would give almost anything to have the opportunities and resources provided to RHAM's students.
