What was your favorite class? My favorite class is statistics with Mrs. Hoffman because she made learning fun.

What was your favorite after school activity? My favorite after school activities were soccer and track.

What was your favorite lunch?  Salad bar

Tyler Gambon

What are your post high school plans? I plan to attend Worcester Polytechnic Institute and major in civil engineering with an environmental concentration.

What will you miss most about high school?  Above all I will miss the extremely welcoming and supportive community at RHS. I would definitely not be where I am today without all of my friends and the many genuinely caring teachers and faculty members.

What special moments, events etc. will you remember?  There are many simple memories that just made my high school experience feel more complete such as pep rallies, student government events and conferences, Envirothon competitions, and tennis bus rides. These memories and many more helped me feel truly at home at RHS. Probably my most unforgettable memory was when I had the opportunity to travel to Europe in 2019.

What was your favorite class? My favorite class was either Bigsby’s English or Mac’s history class. Both classes were extremely laid back and an enjoyable way to begin the day. I felt like I managed to learn so much and both teachers without a doubt opened my eyes to the world and allowed me to see in a different light.

What was your favorite after school activity? Tennis, Environmental Club, Student Government Council

What was your favorite lunch?  Chicken tenders with mashed potatoes and gravy

What have you learned about yourself this year?  From truly understanding how to persevere and pursue goals to the very end to really getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things, this school year has been quite the year of self-discovery. Yet, the most important thing I have learned is that you genuinely need to take advantage of every opportunity you have because Andy Bernard is right, there is no way of knowing you are in the good old days until you have actually left them.

Any final thoughts? Thanks RHS for each and every one of the unforgettable memories! It truly has been a crazy ride and while it is certainly sad to leave, I cannot wait to see what comes next. To the underclassmen, you have probably heard this so many times before but high school truly does fly by and you never know when your journey will not go as planned. Cherish the memories and do all that you can to discover yourself and make the most of your time at RHS.

Lara Glennon

What are your post high school plans?  Attending Emerson College to major in media art production

What will you miss most about high school?  The teachers! Seeing my teachers made every class fun even if I didn’t love the subject.

What was your favorite class? This is so hard to choose because I had favorite subjects, but I also also had favorite teachers. I don’t love science and math but I loved having Casa, Hoff and Ms. DiCanzio. I loved APUSH with Mr. MacAllister and AP Seminar with Hoyo. Spanish with Mrs. Shaughnessy might be my favorite.

What was your favorite after school activity? Hosting a radio show on WRPS was my favorite. It was something I did every week for all four years of high school so it really became a significant part of my time at RHS. It’s something that not a lot of students do but it’s such an incredible opportunity.

What was your favorite lunch?  Macho Nacho!

What have you learned about yourself this year? My goal for this year was to just have fun and make the most of my last year of high school. With the year ending how it did I’m extra thankful that I was able to spend time with my friends after school and have fun in my classes. Academics have always been important to me so sometimes I felt like I was missing out on the social aspect of RHS, I wanted to turn that around and try to experience senior year to the fullest.

Any final thoughts? Thank you, RHS!
