RHPCS 8th Grade Families,
It is hard to believe that it is time to get serious about considering your child’s high school placement… but it really is. I will forward information about various school opportunities as they come to me.
If you are considering Compass Charter High School as an option for your child, please see the information below and attached regarding their lottery application timing and process. Rolling Hills’ 8th grade students benefit by an agreement that we have in place with Compass which allows RHPCS students’ priority pool placement for 9th grade during their lottery process. The deadline is early, so even if you aren’t sure that Compass is your first choice, you don’t miss your window to apply and be included in the lottery drawing pool (December 3, 2018 – Feb 11, 2019).
Rolling Hills has a similar agreement with North Star Charter School and Sage International. I will also forward that information when it becomes available.
Compass Transfer Memorandum Agreement
All the best,

Thank you to all that came out and shopped our Scholastic Book Fair this past week. We hope you enjoyed the great selection of books that children love to read.
Our in-school book fair has concluded, but you can still access our RHPCS Scholastic Book Fair online through November 24.
The online fair includes an even bigger selection of items and your order ships free to the school. Your online purchases continue to support our library fundraising effort.
Shop our book fair through November 24 online at: http://onlinebookfairs.scholastic.com/entrance.aspx?FID=3899674&direct=Y
Let’s give a BIG “Whoot! Whoot!” to Mrs. Cooper for all her time and effort to bring us a fantastic Scholastic Book Fair opportunity this past week!
Book Fair $5 Free Dress Day Opportunity!
Donate $5.00 to the “All for Books” Campaign during the Book Fair and you will receive a “Free Dress Day” pass that can be used on Friday November 16. The money raised buys books for our school and Scholastic matches every dollar raised and provides books to children in need. Last year the funds we raised Scholastic matched and helped families and schools devastated by the hurricanes replace books that were lost. 'All For Books' means Books for All!
Shop the Book Fair through Friday, November 12-16 – Scholastic Book Fair in the Library, Shop 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Daily
To help motivate our students to read even more and to fundraise for our school library, Rolling Hills is holding a Scholastic Book Fair this week. The book fair will be open from 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. daily with great deals on a fantastic selection of books. Get a jump start on your holiday shopping -- books make great gifts and stocking stuffers. All funds raised will go to help our school library grow!
