Class of 2013 Senior Events
Itís hard to believe, but our students will be graduating this year! Hereís the information on many of the activities that will be part of their Senior Year. We have provided the finalized dates for as many of the events as possible.
Check back frequently for updates to these events. You may also contact the Parent Volunteers listed for each event if you wish to help or have questions.

2013 Senior Information Letter
Look for a senior events letter to arrive by email (and hopefully snail-mail) in February 2013. It will include basic information regarding senior events, and information on how to download a Senior Prom sign up form, a Senior Luncheon sign up form, a Senior Spree form (for the senior party after graduation), and a Senior Spree Permission form. Seniors can obtain forms at school from the ASB.

What is Class Fundraising?
Why do we have Class Fundraising at RHS?
As you will see, these graduation-related activities at RHS - Senior Luncheon, Graduation, Senior Awards, Senior Prom and Senior Spree are all designed to make Senior year a memorable one. These activities are expensive and the cost continues to increase each year. By raising money each year, it increases the possibility that all students who want to attend the senior functions will be able to do so.
There is still time to donate, as funds are needed to help provide scholarships and subsidize the cost of the events, so that every student can attend. Mail a check, made out to RHS Class of 2013 to Deb Hudacek, 7735 Forest Drive NE, Seattle, WA 98115.
Do you have questions about the class fundraising activities at RHS, what they support and how you can get involved? You'll find many answers to these questions on the Class Fundraising page.
Senior Class of 2013 Parent Involvement Needed
If you would like to be involved in the many events hosted by the PTSA supporting your seniors this year, please contact one of the Class of 2013 Parent Reps. We greatly appreciate and welcome your help.
Thank you, Class of 2013 parents and students! Your financial support will significantly subsidize the actual costs of these events and make scholarships possible. We are looking forward to a fun and memorable end of the year for our Seniors!
