Student Spotlight - National Merit Semifinalists

Congratulations to RISD's 2017 National Merit Semifinalists:

Kevin Lieb, Lake Highlands HS
Randy Liu, Richardson HS
Kyle Manning, Pearce HS
Molly Molloy, Richardson HS
William Morland, Pearce HS
Mark Saving, Pearce HS

These students were named by the National Merit Scholarship Corp. based on outstanding academic performance on the Preliminary SAT or National Merit Qualifying Test taken as juniors. Their performance ranks them in the top 1% nationally among more than 1.5 million students.

Approximately 90 percent of the Semifinalists will qualify as National Merit Finalists and become eligible for more than 8,000 National Merit Scholarships. Finalists will be announced in February.

New This Year - Peachjar

RISD schools are working with Peachjar this year to assist in the distribution of electronic flyers and information to parents. School-approved e-flyers can be viewed by clicking the Peachjar link on your school's homepage.

This initiative is reducing paper and copying costs for schools, and also saving time. No action is required on the part of parents, but a Peachjar account may be created to manage delivery preferences. Parents will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password, but login is not required to receive or view e-flyers through Peachjar.
