Ft. Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield needs your help. We are all well aware of the significant economic impact this installation has on our community and any reduction in our nation’s troop size, if approved, will impact Ft. Stewart and Hunter and will be devastating to those who serve our community and their families.
Before any decisions are made, the Army is allowing a brief opportunity for public comments. The Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, the Development Authority of Bryan County, the city of Richmond Hill, the city of Pembroke and Bryan County officials join Ft. Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield’s Commanding General Mike Murray, who is strongly encourage the community to convey its support by writing to the following e-mail:. Or call the toll free number at 1-855-846-3940.
All comments must be received by Monday, August 25.

Junior parent night is this coming Thursday, 8/28, 6pm in the East cafeteria. Please join us as we share information tailored to 11th graders and planning for these final two years of high school.
This coming Thursday and Friday, many students will be involved in SLOs, or Student Learning Objectives. The SLO is a pre-test, and the scores on these tests will be used with scores on the SLO post-test at the conclusion of the course to measure student growth. SLOs are being implemented as part of the new Georgia evaluation system, and will allow us to measure student growth.

We will distribute student ID cards through advisement on Thursday. There is no requirement for students to wear these IDs. Students may use their ID cards to get a $1 discount on game tickets at the gate for all home games. ID cards can be used in the media center to check out books. And, it is my hope that I can work with our local members of the community to offer discounts to our students who have their student IDs. We will work to develop this throughout the year. If you are a business owner or know a business owner who would be interested in partnering with RHHS in this way, please email me at .
As always, GO WILCATS!
