Memo to the RU and RTCC Community - Year End Events

The final ceremonies of the school year are fast approaching.  Not all students will be attending all ceremonies at the end of the year, but we ask that you help us plan by RSVP-ing to the events you will be attending.  See links below.  More information on mask requirements and social distancing to come soon.

RU JV/Varsity Athletics Recognition Night (RSVP Please!)

Monday, June 14th, 6:00 PM 

On June 14th, at 6 PM, we are hosting a ceremony for JV and Varsity athletes of the past TWO school years.  It will be under the same tent we are using for other end-year ceremonies.  Given how many athletes we have at RU, YOU MUST please RSVP IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND. We will give tickets to students and families, based on the number of people who RSVP.  Use this link: RSVP.

At this event, students who played on a JV team or Varsity team this year AND/OR last year will be recognized by their coaches.  Students who should receive a Varsity Letter or Varsity Pin will receive them.  Coaches who are retiring will be honored.  Once we know the teams/athletes who will be in attendance, we will send out an agenda for the evening.

More information:

Varsity Letters are given to RU students for the first season on a varsity team.  A pin is given for any additional seasons on a Varsity team. If a student can't attend this event, we will keep your pin and/or letter for you in the main office.

SENIORS: It will be a busy week for seniors and families.  All seniors who have played on Varsity teams will ALSO be recognized at Senior Awards Night, which is on Wednesday, June 16th. 

RSVP: Please respond by Friday, May 28th.  After this date we will determine how many tickets we will have per athlete family. 
 
RU 8th Grade Passage Ceremony (RSVP Please!)

Tuesday, June 15th, 5:00 PM

This ceremony celebrates 8th graders’ passage from middle school into high school.  
Every student is invited to bring up to 4 family guests to sit under the tent.  Other family members may gather on the grass outside the tent. 

We begin at 5:00 PM, a bit earlier than other ceremonies this week, because RTCC has their National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony at 7 PM on this evening.

Parking: To avoid traffic congestion with the 7 PM event, unless you use handicapped parking, please park in the parking lot between RU and the OSSD Office and walk to the tent though the back passage way.  (8th graders know the way, because they’ve been walking it all year!)  

Video of the event will be live streamed on the school’s Facebook page.
