RHS Webmaster

Please consider having your daughter apply to the The University of Connecticut summer Spark program.  Spark is a residential camp for middle and high school girls interested in Computer Science and Engineering offered on the campus of the University of Connecticut at Storrs;  Connecticut's premier state school.  

Spark offers 3 week-long camps in different disciplines:

  1. ​Coding with Arduino (July 9-15)
  2. Robotics with underwater robotics (July 16-22)
  3. 3D printing (July 23-29)

​​Participants can choose to apply to one, two, or all three weeks.  You live for the week at UConn in a dorm, eat in the dining hall; a college experience before you go to college.

No pre experience is required and our young women get hands-on experience learning from UConn's ​women engineers.

A RHS student participated in this last year and had a wonderful experience.  Most costs are picked up by UConn through a scholarship program.   It is a GREAT experience to add to a college application.

The application deadline is June 15, 2018.

Countdown to the First Day of School   



Dear Parents/Guardians,


There are 98 days until the first day of school.  All students entering Kindergarten, Grade 7 and Grade 11 on August 29th, 2018 need a current health assessment physical (not a sports physical) done twelve months prior to the first day of school.


All students new to our district also need a physical done twelve months prior to the first day of school.


Please send a copy of your student’s physical to the school nurse so that she/he may be cleared for the first day of school.  If you have any questions contact your school nurse.


Students who do not turn in a required physical may not be allowed to attend school.


Thank you and have a healthy and safe summer.
