RHS Student Activities & Clubs

The goals for offering Student Activities are to build a positive school culture and to make all of our RHS students feel a sense of belonging as a part of the RHS community! For these reasons, we strive to offer events and activities that appeal to a broad range of student interests and that increase school spirit and student participation.

Check Out All Our Clubs Offered at RHS Club Fair!

Mark it in your calendar to check it out on Friday, Sept. 12th during your lunch period in the Mall!

Get to speak with student representatives from all of our clubs at the annual Club Fair!  Held during all lunch periods, each club at Club Fair has a table set up in the Mall for students to learn about, ask questions, and sign up for their favorite clubs!

Student Activity Proposals

For any student groups wishing to sponsor, host, or organize a school event, administrative approval is required. 

Class Pages

RHS has a Class Advisory Program where each class is sponsored by an RHS teacher and lead by a Student Advisory Congress. In that program, students plan events and activities to raise class spirit and participation, host service activities for providing community outreach opportunities, and hold fundraisers to help provide for the activities they do.
