The Principal's Office

Dear RNE Families,

This week has been busy at RNE! Our 3rd and 5th grade students completed the IOWA assessment earlier this week. They will finish up Monday with science and social studies sessions.

As I visited classrooms this week it was exciting to see the growth students are making in all areas. Many classrooms are completing their first math unit. Students are talking about math and supporting one another as they demonstrate their new learning.

Our students are also becoming writers! Many classes are preparing for their celebrations as students have completed their narrative writing units. I have enjoyed talking with our writers about their small moments. Teachers are reporting that students are writing more than they did last year! They are also having to force students to stop writing! What a wonderful problem! I am sure you will have an opportunity to review your child's writing during the school year.

I hope to see many of you at the Roswell High School Youth Night event tomorrow evening!
