"American Promise" Parent Education Movie Screening

Please join us as we screen the documentary film, "American Promise" on Tuesday, October 24, at 6:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a discussion.

"American Promise spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, middle-class African-American parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., turn their cameras on their son, Idris, and his best friend, Seun, who make their way through Dalton, one of the most prestigious private schools in the country. Chronicling the boys' divergent paths from kindergarten through high school graduation, this provocative, intimate documentary presents complicated truths about America's struggle to come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity. Winner, U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award, 2013 Sundance Film Festival."

If you would, please bring your friends and help us spread the word about this interesting and important film. Thank you for adding your name to our sign-up form: This will help us plan for seating and popcorn.

TRS Recognized as an NC Green School of Quality

The Raleigh School has been named an NC Green School of Quality. The award recognizes schools that are taking active strides in improving and maintaining sustainable practices and their environmental education curriculum.

"We believe that children will only come to care about the environment if they have deep and meaningful engagement with nature and if they have adult role models who care about preserving the biodiversity of our planet," says Bud Lichtenstein, head of The Raleigh School.

The award was presented during an assembly on a new composting option for the school.

Wonderful Celebration of 65 Years of TRS!

On Sunday, Sept. 24th, we welcomed friends, founders, alumni and current families to a wonderful event celebrating the 65th anniversary of The Raleigh School. Founding Head of School Harriet Lasher shared some thoughts, and families enjoyed looking at old scrapbooks, photos and a time capsule from 1997.

"Lean On Me" Hurricane Relief Drive Raises More Than $10,000

The Raleigh School's "Lean on Me" Hurricane Relief Drive has raised more than $10,000. Thank you to our generous donors! Students have worked hard to research how to help and will be supporting the Houston Independent School District and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, as well as One America Appeal. The students have worked with Music Teacher Tray Batson to come together and sing "Lean On Me," while also creating beautiful "helping hands" art with Art Teacher Hollis Dorafshar.

Celebrating Annual Multicultural Feast

Our annual Multicultural Feast will be Thursday, September 28, at the Athletics and Arts Center from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Please bring a dish representing your cultural, ethnic or family history and background. This year, there will also be a storyteller.

This event is an annual favorite at TRS, and we are looking forward to another fun year. The Feast is a green event, so pack your own reusable plates, cups and utensils (we'll have a rinsing station on site).
