Mrs. Janelle Gilson

One of the things I love to do is to travel. I have organized five trips abroad with students.  So far, students from Renaissance H.S. have come with me to Italy and Greece (2013), Belize (2014), London, Paris, Heidelberg, Salzburg, Vienna, Munich, Dachau, Prague, and Berlin (2015), and England, France, and Spain (2017).  I have now started the planning for June of 2018.  This looks like it will be an amazing trip.  We are going to London, Paris, Lucerne, the Alps, and then Munich.

There will be a parent and student meeting Tuesday, September 12th at 7 pm in room 101.   If you are unable to attend the meeting, please send me an email for additional information.  Parents, siblings, cousins, and best friends are all welcome to come as well.

It looks like it is going to be another great year for National History Day!  Last spring almost 100 RHS students respresented as the only high school in the West Ada district to compete.  40 went on to State, and then 20 won either first or second place.  14 kids competed at Nationals in Maryland, and we had an amazing week spent exploring Washington, D.C.  I'd encourage parents and students to consider competing.  It really looks great on a college resume!
