E3 Signing Day – REVISED BELL SCHEDULE 5-2-19

On Thursday, May 2, we will be hosting the E3 Signing Day all-school assembly in the gym for Theodore Roosevelt HS’s Seniors.  Please review the E3 Signing Day REVISED BELL SCHEDULE.


SCHOOL SPIRIT:  We want to see everyone in school colors and class sections lavishly decorated in support of E3 Signing Day (#RHSE3) and the Class of 2019. Students will want to support this event because they will want support when it’s their senior year.  Each class will be judged on its school spirit displays (clothing and decorations). The class with the most spirit will win the E3 Class Spirit Award.

SHARE:  We are ENCOURAGING students to use social media and #RHSE3. We also want students to follow the E3 Signing Day account on Instagram (found by searching: rhse3 or kentrhse3).

Spirit Week 2018

The Seniors will be participating in Senior Spirit Week 2018 the week of May 7-11, 2018, as part of their last weeks of high school.  While each day has been approved, students are expected to follow the school dress code (no hats, no sunglasses, no short shorts, etc.) and maintain the academic focus throughout the school day.  The following is the theme for each school day:

  • MONDAY — Make It a Superhero Monday
  • TUESDAY — Tie Die Tuesday
  • WEDNESDAY — Where-ya-going Wednesday (college gear)
  • THURSDAY — Theodore Roosevelt Thursday (school spirit gear)
  • FRIDAY — Flashback Friday (elementary school jerseys to promote their Amazing Race event)

Attention Parents of Sophomores!

Because of the shift in calendars in the 2019-20 school year, the graduation ceremonies would fall on Memorial Day weekend for the Class of 2020.  We will not be having the graduation on that Sunday due to various reasons so we are looking to change the format from a Sunday afternoon to a Thursday evening ceremony on May 21, 2020.  Specific times are still to be determined, but we wanted to begin the communication with students’ families.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Mr. Dennis Love at or 330-676-8719.
