The Principal's office
Dear RNE Family,
The weather has finally turned cooler! This week has been filled with visitors. RNE had two walk through observations by district groups. It made me so very proud to share all of the instructional strategies that are taking place at our school! Both teams commented how engaged students were in their learning as well as their ability to share how they were improving in the variety of subject areas.
Tomorrow is our RNE spirit wear day! Don't forget to celebrate our school!
Remember to wear your spirit wear on Friday, December 8 and show your RNE spirit!

The Georgia Department of Education requests school and community feedback and comments regarding a survey opportunity for the review of the Physical Education Georgia Performance Standards (GPS).

The survey will be posted for 60 days beginning on November 14, 2017, and will close on January 12, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. EST. Please communicate this survey opportunity to your Physical Education teachers, administrators, parents, and other education stakeholders.

Common Sense Media Certified School
Roswell North is proud to announce our approved application and award as a Digital Citizenship Certified School. This honor recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to our students and engaging the entire school community in this important discussion. Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, both unlocking extraordinary opportunities and posing real risks for young people. Students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined, both in and out of the classroom.
RNES sees these experiences as teachable moments. We believe that digital citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially in schools like ours that are using technology to transform learning. That's why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly.
This honor is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology. This recognition acknowledges our school's commitment to creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship.
Congratulations to our Super Bears of November!
