Student Recognition Programs

RHS recognizes the challenges that students face in today’s society. Trying to balance family, friends, studies, and other activities can be demanding. This is why RHS values students who face their everyday challenges and are able to perform, or maintain a high level of excellence. To recognize these accomplishments we have established the following programs to recognize students in various ways:

Department Awards

Departments will be given the opportunity to recognize students for high academic performance within their subject area. The award will be given at the end of the year.

Honor Roll

Students who earn a 3.5 Grade Point Average (GPA) and above (during the Semester) will be placed on the honor roll. 

Perfect Attendance

Students who can show amazing mental focus and perseverance by showing up everyday to school deserve recognition. Students will be recognized for this accomplishment at the end of the school year.

Renaissance $pud Buck$

RHS recognizes students who display the Success Bound traits of Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience. To recognize these qualities staff members will award $pud Buck$ to students when they are seen meeting the above mentioned qualities. Students who receive a $pud Buck will take them to the office and deposit it into the $pud Buck$ Box. Periodically $pud Buck$ will be drawn out of the $pud Buck$ Box and students whose names are called will receive gift certificates, and other prizes.
