Upcoming Dates to Remember


  • Thursday, February 14 - Valentine's Day
  • Monday, February 18 - President's Day - No School

Valentines Day

We will not be having a Valentine's Party at school, however, we will have time set aside at the end of the school day on February 14 for students to exchange Valentines with each other. If you choose to send your child with Valentines for their classmates, we ask that you send enough for every student in the homeroom and label them all "To: My Friend, From: (Your child's name)". This will aid in passing cards out quickly and easily. A small store bought and individually packaged candy or food item may be included, but nothing large or home-made. We will not be eating any candy or treats at school. All Valentines will go home with your student so that you can make the best decision of what and how much your child eats.

Lost and Found

Do any of these items look familiar? Have your child check the gym for their lost jackets.

Saving Energy

Our Rennell Watt Watchers have been diligently patrolling the school! They are very serious about saving the district money and conserving energy! We have seen a decrease in wasted energy at Rennell! This is great news! Each month a report is submitted to the district and they calculate how much energy the district is saving. What’s great about this is that we can see how other campuses are doing in comparison to Rennell. We are saving energy each month, but we can do more! Each area is patrolled 3 times a week. We want to recognize areas that are being proactive and conscious of turning off their lights, computers, lamps, and making sure electricity is not on when not in use. The area that that does the best for the month of February will get a Watt Watcher surprise! So let’s all work together and make sure that we are conserving our resources and we beat the other campuses in energy conservation! Our Watt Watcher team won first place for our video, so let’s win again with energy conservation! Remember: Think, Act, Save- Be Polite and Turn off the Light!
