Why Do We Need the Phoenix Fund? (Part 3)

Last week we shared a graph that demonstrated the decreased funding RCHS has received over the last few years. Since 2008, this amounts to a total loss of $425,000 PER YEAR.

These are not good solutions.

But, with a strong Phoenix Fund, we can make things better for your students and our school.

Every family. Every year.

Contact the Development Office with questions or for more information.

Senior Portraits for the Class of 2017
Yearbook

The time has come to begin thinking about your senior portrait for the 2017 yearbook! Outlined below are some guidelines and suggestions for students.

Portraits are not required to be headshots. The picture should include only the senior and no other people. The final picture should be color, in focus, and the resolution should be at least 300 dpi. Pictures should be at least 3”x5” for final printing.

Pictures may come from any photographer -- amateur or professional. If you would like your portrait to be taken professionally, some students use Prestige Portraits, a company that is affiliated with LifeTouch, which takes our underclassmen yearbook portraits. Their information can be found here. Additionally, we have had many photographers advertise in our yearbook over the years, and we always encourage members of the Raleigh Charter community to patronize businesses that support our yearbook. In the past couple of years, SD Portraits, Willa Stein Photography, and Renee Sprink Photography have advertised in our book. Keep in mind that pictures are NOT required to be taken by a professional photographer.

Senior Portraits should be sent to yearbook.editors@raleighcharterhs.org by mid-October. Information regarding the final deadline will be sent out at the beginning of the school year.

Logging in to the RCHS Website
RCHS Community
It is vital for parents to log into the RCHS website to update contact information. Doing so helps us ensure that we can quickly communicate any urgent or important announcements to you. Updating your contact information also guarantees that you will receive school news and reminders via The Phoenix News each Friday. Your RCHS login can also be used to view contact information in the Parent/Student Directory. Parent userids are also vital to the success of our online sign-up system for Flex and Community Work Days. Each parent is assigned their own userid.

EACH NEW PARENT was sent an email with information about his/her ID/login on August 5th. Please use the information in the email to log in and update your information. There is no need to request a parent login. If you cannot find the email in your inbox, you may need to check your spam folder.

NEW STUDENTS received their RCHS network logins and RCHS email accounts during new user sessions conducted during the first week or so of school.

RETURNING STUDENTS
needing their network or email passwords reset will need to come see Ms. Smith in Room 216 once school is in session. Students cannot request password resets online or via email.

RETURNING PARENTS
can log into the website by going to the login page (click User Login on the RCHS homepage) and typing in their username and password. A parent's userid is the email address which is on record with RCHS. If a parent email address has changed since the last login, the parent should log in with the previous email address and update this information. If you have forgotten your password, type in your username and click "Forgot your password?" An email containing a temporary password will be sent automatically.

If you have any concerns, send a brief description of your problem to logins@raleighcharterhs.org.
