Roncalli High School will hold Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, October 7, from 4:00PM - 7:00PM. Conferences this year will be done either online via Google Meets or in person. Parents must sign up on their student’s Canvas account and state in the comments whether they will be attending virtually or in person.
I am sharing in this email three links for parents that provide simple, quick instructions on how to sign up for a conference with a teacher as well as how to log into the conference with the teacher on October 7. Please watch the videos as they are only two minutes in length and will provide you with easy, step by step instructions.
Appointment slots for the conferences will be opening this week. Please make sure to sign up for an appointment prior to Thursday, October 7 at noon.
These conferences will be limited to seven minutes so that teachers can accommodate as many parents as possible. Please contact your child’s teacher directly should you desire a more comprehensive, longer conference.
We are always grateful for our parents and their continued support of and loyalty to Roncalli! Thank you for making the decision and sacrifice to send your child to RHS!
Please contact our Technology Integration Specialist, Jenny Carroll, at should you have any questions related to the online aspect of the parent-teacher conferences.

Congratulations to our Royal Homecoming Queen Cate Lehner and King Sam Sering!
Stu Co led another outstanding spirit week. All-Out participation with the dress-up days was strong. Freshman, sophomores and seniors won at least one class competition. Congrats to the Class of 2022 for taking this year's overall title! Cate Lehner was crowned homecoming queen. Over 750 students had a blast at the homecoming dance, where Sam Sering was crowned homecoming king. The students danced the night away and played MarioKart on the jumbo screen, yard games on the circle, and enjoyed Kona Ice! It was the perfect way to cap off a great spirit week. Thanks to the student council and all the staff members who helped make it happen!
This past weekend, Roncalli's Life Academy had a reunion for their alumni, and it was a blast! The weather was perfect for enjoying the outdoors, and a great time was had by all in attendance!

Any student’s absence for travel reasons on these days will be considered unexcused. The day(s) preceding and immediately following those two breaks will be marked double unexcused days. A double unexcused day means that four points will be deducted from the student’s cumulative grade in each class at the end of that grading period. Teachers are not required to make special provisions for students who are unexcused. Students absent because of illness on the day(s) preceding and/or immediately following spring break will be required to bring a doctor’s excuse to the Attendance Officer upon their return to school. College days are not allowed on the day preceding and immediately following fall break or spreak break without prior administrative approval.
