Thank You For Your Help!

We mentioned it our newsletter but didn’t quite share it here on the site. We didn’t want another day to go by without saying heartfelt “thank you” to all who contributed food. money, and/or their time to set up and clean the holiday luncheon we provided for our hard-working teachers and staff right before winter break. Here are some pics of the teachers and staff enjoying our efforts.

End-of-Quarter Rincon Teacher & Staff Breakfast

It’s the end of the 1st quarter and the parents of the Rincon PTA want to show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate them and the successful start to the new school year. We will be offering a breakfast spread the morning of Friday, October 7th.  This is Grading Day and while students don’t go to school that day, teachers are there to finish up end-of-quarter grades and such.

Please consider donating some goodies for the breakfast or volunteering to help set up or break down.

Below is the link to the sign-up site that has the list of items desired. Please review the list of items and simply sign up to bring them in. Items that will keep unrefrigerated can be dropped off to the school office on Thursday, 10/6. Friday drop-off time is from 7 am – 7:30 am to give us time to set up. 

Sign Up!

(If sign up link above doesn’t work, please go here.)

Don’t have time to drop something off but still want to help out? You can easily donate money instead so that a PTA rep can purchase items for the breakfast. You can do so online at bit.ly/rhspta-donate.

Thank you Ranger families for helping to celebrate our teachers and staff!

Rincon University’s current scoreboard on the football field is over 30 years old! We have a unique opportunity NOW to finally update it!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is rincon-high-school-current-scoreboard-retire.png

Rincon University’s current scoreboard on the football field is over 30 years old and we can no longer get bulbs or other parts for it. Now is an ideal time to replace the scoreboard because the track that goes around the football field is being replaced by TUSD.  As part of that, they are moving the location of the scoreboard to the west side of the field, along Swan, at their expense.  We just need to provide the scoreboard for them to install–or else they will use the OLD one! Yikes!

The cost of the scoreboard is $30,213.  The scoreboard has been ordered and $15,000 has been raised thus far.  We need the balance when it is delivered. Please consider donating to the much needed upgrade! You can donate online via the PayPal button below, or mail a check/money order to Rincon PTA.

Welcome Rangers, Parents , and Guardians

July 2021

Hello Ranger Students, Parents, and Guardians, Welcome to a new year at Rincon High School! I look forward to finally having our students back on campus for inperson learning. Over the last year and a half, we have learned a lot about how technology can serve as a powerful tool for learning, which is why it is exciting to announce that even as we return to in-person learning, we will continue the practice of issuing all students a laptop. Teachers will continue using digital platforms to post assignments, collect assessment data, provide feedback and communicate with students and parents. Students will learn strategies to stay organized in the digital world we live in, while developing valuable 21st century skills that will be an asset in their lives beyond high school. This year we will also be placing emphasis on after school opportunities for students to reconnect with the school environment by proving expanded club offerings and individualized academic opportunities. It is very important to us that our students get the help they need while reestablishing positive social relationships tied to Rincon. We strongly encourage all students to get involved in activities that extend beyond the traditional school day.
