RAMFEST 2019

Mark your calendar for Roy-Hart's homecoming event -- RAMFEST and its parade on Friday, September 27th. Activities starting at 4:00, with the parade starting at 5:00.

RAMFEST was a hit last year and organizers plan on adding a lot more to make it family friendly and something the whole RH community can enjoy.

Last year they had bounce houses, games, activities, a petting zoo, face painting, goodies by Alternative Grounds, and a chicken bbq. This year they are adding Touch a Truck activities and demonstrations.

Any club or business that would like to contribute in any way to the activities or parade can contact Kelly Halstead at 716.949.6349.

Solar farm in Gasport

There is the possibility of a solar farm in Hartland. The open house is tonight. 350 megawatts would require a VERY large area.

A message from the superintendent

Dear School Community Member,

As you know, the Roy-Hart community voted to approve our District’s plan to invest 12.1 million dollars into our buildings and grounds. Our intent is to complete the project in two phases during the summer months of 2020 and 2021. The first phase will include replacing the roofs of our buildings and a series of site improvements which will include work on our playgrounds, tennis court and parking lots.

On June 24 and 26, several members of the school community joined our architects, engineers and administration in sharing their thoughts on the proposed project and future “Master Plan” for the District. They have been working to take the ideas shared and create some schematics that they will share as they begin to finalize the plans for the summer of 2020 work. Please join me at the Royalton-Hartland High School Media Center on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 7 at 5:00 p.m. Our team will present their recommendations and we encourage the community to weigh in on the plans.

Our efforts to become “High Performing” will take a concerted effort of our entire community. I look for your support, comments and recommendations. As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town, or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski

Sincerely,

Dr. Hank Stopinski
Superintendent of Schools

Another great Derby!

Kudos to Lynn Harrington and family on running yet another super successful Erie Canal Fishing Derby. So many families had a lot of fun -- the Derby got them outdoors, creating memories and a lifelong interest in angling and the Erie Canal. Thank you for doing what you do!
