We are heading into the second half of the school year with so many exciting events planned. Thank you to Jennifer Reighter for scheduling all the memorable assemblies such as 6th grade Dare-to-Dance, 5th grade Walk Through the American Revolution and
much, much more.
A HUGE thank you to Kristin Cruz and Lara Kayali for chairing this year’s December Crafts. Students loved making their own crafts. Thank you so much to all the parents that volunteered during this event, especially our very own RS students that stepped behind the tables to assist their peers in doing the crafts. Not only do we have some amazing parents, we have amazing students as well.
Know Your States
It’s February and that means it’s a month filled with FUN!!!! This month starts off with Know Your States. Good luck to all our students who will diligently study for the Know Your States Challenge! Students will have 3 opportunities to take the test: Tuesday, February 4, 11, and 18 during lunch in the MPR. The PTA looks forward to supplying a pizza party for all the perfect scores on the States Challenge and awesome medals to all those students with perfect scores on the Capitals Challenge! Check out the website for helpful hints and links! A GIANT thank you to Ruth Fan and Janet Trout for chairing
Also coming up this month is our very popular Valentine’s Bingo. Be sure to pre-purchase your Family Fun Night Bingo cards before the event because there will be no sales the day of the event. Due to popular demand, we will again be hosting TWO sessions!! Both will be on the same night, Friday, February 7th…first session is 3-5pm and the second session is 6-8pm. What a fun night for families to come out and enjoy dinner and fun in one place! Tons of thanks to Jill Parkin for being our chairperson for this highly anticipated annual event!
