Cooking Club - Emily Wales

We are looking for 2nd-5th graders who are interested in learning more about simple recipes that they can cook on their own or with a little help from an adult. Students in the RV Junior Chefs Cooking Club will have the opportunity to prepare and sample a new recipe each week and will receive a recipe booklet at the conclusion of our club. We will meet six Monday afternoons from 4:00-5:00 from October 3rd to November 21st. Parents will be responsible for picking up all cooking club participants at 5:00 p.m. If you are interested, click here to sign up. You will receive a confirmation email no later than September 26th once the roster is finalized.

Being Engaged

One of the main focuses for the PTA is to create a school community where families are engaged in their child's school. While attending PTA meetings and volunteering for special events are great ways to be engaged, there are multitude of other ways busy families can stay engaged. Below is a video from the National PTA on the many ways you can be involved! Enjoy.
Parent Involvement Matters!

Needing a Bike Helmet

Our friends from Liberty United Methodist Church have around 30 bike helmets to give away should your child need one. Please contact Veda Donner at
