    Principal’s Message

    We want to welcome our incoming 7th grade families to River Heights.  To promote a smooth transition from the elementary school to intermediate school, you will be included on school-wide communication from this point forward.  Again,we welcome you to our River Heights family!

    The school year is flying by and we have entered the third trimester.  As we head into the annual assessment season, we will be reminding all students the importance of continuing to demonstrate The COLTS Way.  On behalf of the entire RHIS staff, we are proud of our Colt students for being:

    • COMPASSIONATE- showing kindness and respect to each other and going above and beyond to reach out to others in need
    • OUTSTANDING- going above and beyond to do what is right and making good behavior choices
    • LEADERS- knowing right from wrong and reporting when something doesn’t sound or look right on our campus
    • TENACIOUS- remaining focused and doing what it takes to be successful
    • SCHOLARS- doing their very best on every assignment or assessment

    Recently we acknowledged all Colt students that have earned at least 150 HERO points so far this year.  We are proud to report that over 600 Colt students were acknowledged for demonstrating The COLTS Way and earning at least 150 HERO points! Way to go Colts!

    All Colt families are encouraged to visit our website http://www.cnusd.k12.ca.us/rhis  for current information and news regarding our school.  Please don’t hesitate to call our office at (951) 738-2155 anytime you have questions, suggestions, or concerns or contact me directly at tdudley@cnusd.k12.ca.us.
