Principal's Message

 

RUHS Students, Staff, and Families:
 
Happy Thanksgiving Break! Please safely enjoy the time away from school. We look forward to seeing you back on Monday, November 28th.
 
The holidays are an opportunity to remind ourselves, friends, and families about the importance of gratitude.
 
Please go here for an inspirational message about continuing to see the talents and potential in all of our students.
 
Here at RUHS, we are grateful for our wonderful students, caring staff, and supportive parents/guardians.
              
We also live, learn, and work in our amazing Redondo Beach community. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate everything we have!
 
Our Sea Hawk family wishes all of you a great and restful week off.
 
Best,
 
Anthony Bridi
 
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”

**TEAM RUHS SKECHERS UPDATE** 

ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!!!

A special message for students:

In case you're still on the fence about signing up, remember that RUHS will have a Sea Hawk Splash Competition to see who can make the best splash! You may be wondering, what is the "best" splash? See below for details!

 

  • Contestants will be judged on a scale from 1 to 10 on two elements: style and splash. 
  • Style means how flashy your form is before you hit the water--did you do a traditional cannonball? Pencil dive? Belly flop? Pirouette in midair? 
  • Splash means how strong your splash is when you hit the water--is your splash epic like a geyser explosion, or just a tiny plop? 

 

This competition will see students, teachers, and ALL of RU Administration face off in a splash showdown! The competition will take place in our aquatic center IF…

 

  • 600 Sea Hawk community members sign up.
  • Students who signed up (each class) will be randomly drawn to participate (1 student = Splash/Judge, 30 = spectators of contest). The class with the most virtual sign-ups will have 50 spectators.
  • If a student does not wish to splash, they can choose a willing friend, teacher, or staff member in their place.  The student will then be a judge.
  • The event will take place on Friday, November 18 during snack and SSH (RUTV will film the event live).

 

Join Team RUHS for the Skechers Walk on Sunday, October 30th today for a chance to participate in the Sea Hawk Splash Competition!

 

Please be sure to see the attachments to this message for shuttle information and the map of our meeting location on Sunday, October 30th.

 

You’ve got Skechers QUESTIONS? We’ve got Skechers ANSWERS! 

I can’t be there in person. Can a Virtual Walker still get a swag bag and T-Shirt? 

YES! Everyone who registers gets a swag bag and a t-shirt (while supplies last). All registered walkers can avoid the lines by pre-checking in to pick up swag bags at the following locations this Friday, October 28th from 11 am – 6 pm or Saturday, October 29th from 11 am – 4 pm:

  • Manhattan Beach Skechers retail store
  • Torrance Skechers retail store in Del Amo Mall
  • Big 5 Sporting Goods in Torrance at 17542 Hawthorne Boulevard
  • Promenade on the Peninsula in Palos Verdes (near the fountains and across from Good Stuff Restaurant)

You can also pick up the day of the walk at Manhattan Beach Pier at 8 am. Anyone who’s registered in the past knows these swag bags are REALLY GOOD! 

Our family really enjoys all of the excitement that usually happens at the walk. Is that happening again this year? 

YES!! There is a whole morning of entertainment at the walk including LIVE performances, games and activities for the whole family, and the new Kulture City sensory escape zone. 

How long is the walk? What do we do once we’re done? 

The walk is 3.5 miles along the strand from the Manhattan Beach Pier to the Hermosa Beach Pier and back. Manhattan Beach has their annual Pumpkin racing contest at noon right near the walk site. It’s super fun to watch even if you’re not racing. 

Where does Team RUHS meet on the day of the walk and what time should we be there? 

Team RUHS will meet up with all of our Redondo schools on the strand, just to the south of the Manhattan Beach Pier (see map attached). Just look for our Team RUHS/RBEF signs. Check in starts at 8 am. If you plan to walk with our team, please arrive at the meet spot by 8:30 am. 

Last year, RUHS had 458 walkers and received a check for $20,610. What can these funds be used for? 

These funds are unrestricted and can be used at the Principal’s discretion for anything RUHS needs. Registration is only $30 per walker and 100% of each registration comes right back to RUHS! This year the grant to RUHS will be used to help fund a new marquee on PCH!

Can I really register my PET or the neighborhood squirrel?! 

YES!! You can register your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, grandparents near and far AND your PETS!!! And they all get a swag bag too (while supplies last)! 

All of this sounds SO COOL! Is it too late for me to register? 

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Please click the link below to go directly to Team RUHS, click JOIN TEAM, fill out your details and don’t forget to check the box for the “Redondo Beach Educational Foundation” so our school gets the credit. 

Click HERE to Join Team RUHS!!

Let’s come together for our favorite team event of the entire year!! #TeamRUHS #WalkWithRBUSD 

**NOTE: If you would like to give "extra" to Team RUHS, please consider registering ADDITIONAL WALKERS because "donating or adding extra money per walker" DOES NOT increase the funds given back. We only get credit for EACH $30 Registration. And, yes, pet's count too! THANK YOU!!!**

Dear RUHS Families:
 
Welcome back!  School will begin in a few days (August 17th), so we ask that you enjoy the remaining days of summer and of course start preparing for an excellent school year.  Please begin by reviewing our
website, coordinating your morning/afternoon schedule (see the new bell schedule), and watching this video, highlighting Sea Hawk expectations. Stay connected within our RUHS learning community through the Parent Square app which can be downloaded onto your smartphone.  Sea Hawk families, we want all of our Sea Hawks to thrive and individually succeed in their academic growth and social emotional development.  Here are ways that we can assist our Sea Hawks to keep on PACE to SOAR!

 

  • Self Advocate - If concerns arise during the school year, have them reach out to the proper adult on campus for support. Our counselors, teachers, and staff are here to always help navigate a difficult situation.  Please click to see our RUHS communication protocol 
  • Have A Growth Mindset - Having a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset is so important at any age. Failing is a part of growing and maturity.  Help them be resilient when they experience disappointment and failure. We will continue to message this to our students regularly 
  • Take Risks - Try out for sports teams, join new clubs, get involved in new experiences. These are ways they can find their passion. We provide various opportunities to be part of our Sea Hawk community outside of the classroom 
  • Take Initiative - Read our emails/communications, participate in school and district events, attend parent teacher conferences, etc. We strive to have open lines of communication and transparency with our families and students
  • Know Your RUHS Counselor and RUHS Student Resources  – Please click the link for the RUHS counselor webpage
 
 

Keep reading for pertinent information to have a successful first month of school!

Important School News, Resources, & Announcements:

  • RUHS Parent Student Handbook: This can always be found on our RUHS website. When in doubt about Dress Code, Attendance, Behavior/Citizenship Rubric, Electronic Devices and all other related RUHS expectations/protocols, please review on our website
  • Final Schedules & Schedule Changes: While we do our best to ensure functional and accurate schedules for all students, we are human and mistakes are inevitable. Your student received a draft copy of their schedule at registration and will receive a final copy on the first day of school in the small gym, before the start of Period 1
  • Drop-off/Pick-up: Please follow all traffic laws when dropping-off and picking-up students.  This includes stopping at stop signs, not double-parking or parking in red zones, not parking in handicap-labeled spaces unless permitted to do so, and not making illegal U-turns. Please help us by not parking in spots marked for staff. Additionally, students must only cross the street in crosswalks.  Please click here for drop off and pick up zones around RUHS.  Also please click here for information regarding Beach Cities Transit.  Thank you for helping to keep ALL of our students safe!
  • Bike Safety: We welcome students to ride their bike or scooter to school!  However, they must wear a helmet and abide by all traffic laws.  This is not just a school rule, it is the law.   Also, they cannot ride on campus, just to and from campus. Once they arrive on the sidewalks outside of school, bikes and scooters must be walked. Finally, they need to bring a proper lock to secure their bike, etc. in the designated bicycle parking areas on the RUHS campus
  • Technology Support: Our RBUSD IT Department has set up a website of resources to help students and families with any tech related issues. Please visit for tech support. - https://sites.google.com/a/rbusd.org/rbusd/
  • RBUSD Child Nutrition Updates:  Beginning in the 2022–23 school year, Child Nutrition Services will be participating in California’s Universal Meals Program. The new State Meal Mandate requires public school districts serving students in grades TK–12 to offer two meals free of charge (breakfast and lunch) during each school day to students requesting a meal, regardless of their free or reduced-price meal eligibility. This state meal mandate only applies when students are on campus during in-person learning. Breakfast will continue to be available before school and during the students’ break time. In order to move the lines as quickly as possible, we are asking that you please encourage your students to bring their student IDs with them to scan at the cashier when receiving meals inside the cafeteria or purchasing snack items outside at the snack windows. Even though meals are free for students, the CDE is still requiring that we collect meal applications. We are encouraging families to fill out meal applications for LCFF funding and additional benefits for the household (Pandemic EBT funds, exam and application fee waivers and other discounted costs). Please click here to fill out an application
  • COVID 19 Protocols: Please see our superintendent’s latest message on COVID protocols within RBUSD. You may view the message via Parent Square.
