Radio Station

Community members who may not be able to get out of their homes may still be able connect with the schools and following and listening to the extra-curricular activities on the radio.

Telephone

A lot of work, but just calling our students parents and making them aware of their child's behavior and upcoming events in which they can get involved.  

Door to Door

With unlimited extra-curricular activities at our school, their programs need to make money so they go out into the community and sell their fundraising product. A great way to connect with community and make them aware of upcoming events at RAHS.  It could be given to them on a 1/2 sheet of paper or provide them with the school website address where they can access all the events.
