Kindergarten Readiness

Kinder garden readiness prepares you to enroll your child in a preschool, helps them learn to read before school and teaches you to build healthy routines with your child. 

Highschool Counseling

The purpose of the Reach Higher Shasta Counseling Initiative is to develop a systematic approach to high school counseling across the county so that no matter which high school a student attends, the student and the student’s family would receive the same college, career, and personal development information and support in grades 9­-12 across all of the four participating districts.

 

K-3 Literacy

We are working to train all of our K-2 teachers across the county on the new Basic Phonics Skills. This Program assures that books get into the hands of youth in Shasta County. The goal is to assure that literacy is promoted and that children can read by the Third-grade marker.

College and Career Signing Day

This will be an event sponsored by RHS to highlight and spotlight a group of high school seniors from Shasta County high schools who have made plans to pursue some type of post high school training and/or education.
