Thank you parents!!  Rocky Heights Middle School will receive $627 just from our Rocky Heights Middle School/Target one-day event on October 28! 


Target will continue to donate 1% of sales all year long if you designate RHMS as your school of choice when using your Red Card though the Take Charge of Education program.   If you have not already designated RHMS, please do so.


By designating your REDcard donation to RHMS in your card preferences and using your REDcard at Target all school year, you will help earn 1% of the sales all school year long!





Community Assistance Program

 Community service at Rocky Heights is evolving.  

This year RHMS will expand their partnership with City Square Denver.  City Square is a homeless outreach facility that takes care of people in the Denver area with school supplies, clothing, food and connections with people who care and offer help and assistance.

Throughout the year blue crates will be located near the front of the school for the donation of gently used clothes - adult clothing is always needed.  Any donation of seasonal clothes and coats are welcome and appreciated.

Additionally, we will participate in food bank donation events at various times during the school year.   
       
If you have any questions about donating, please email Sharon Majetich

RHMS Traffic Plan
With the start of the school year, we are getting back into the routine for a good flow of traffic through the RHMS parking lot both before and after school.  Please review our traffic plan to help us more efficiently move people in and out of the lot.  NOTE** Cars will not be allowed to park in the fire line entering the school parking lot.  You must pull into the lot and not park in the curved fire lane coming into the lot.
