The Buzz

News from RVS (October 13)

Words from the principal.....

Fall is in the air and we have been super busy here at RVS! Our students have been learning all about having a growth mindset, making goals, and working hard towards achieving them. I am excited to move forward with IRLA (K-6 reading assessment) and encouraging students to read independently at home every day. We will give away free books from our vending machine as kids keep reading and growing their brains so stay tuned for more information!

Please remember to check in and support your student at home. We are noticing many students skipping through modules to complete the end assignment. Sadly, this usually results in a poor score and lots of learning NOT happening. Taking the time to go through all the slides is where additional learning needs to happen, to compliment zoom learning, BEFORE completing a quiz or assignment. If your student is spending less than 4-5 hours in Buzz per week, your student is probably struggling. It is so crucial to not skip these important steps in learning. Please help your child by guiding them through the Buzz lessons at home before completing assignments!

Picture Day!

Please use the online code to order school pictures. All students that come on campus next Wednesday will have their picture taken. You do NOT have to buy any! If you are NOT planning on coming to our Hive Day, you can drop by with your child any time between the hours of 9-12 to take pictures if you'd like.
