Greetings from RLS!
Though it does not feel like it today, spring is here and we are now in the home stretch of the school year! As you will see from our calendar of events below, the remaining month and a half of school is jam packed. I hope you are following RLS on Facebook and/or Instagram so you can share in the wonder of what it means to be a member of this learning community!
One of the events we are most looking forward to is our Math and Movement Family Fun Night that will take place on Wednesday, May 18th. Mark your calendars now for this fun event that will take place from 6:00-7:30!
As you will see from the attached flyer, "Math & Movement Family Fun Night is a high energy math and reading event. Children use fun floor mats and wall charts to learn math and reading concepts through movement. At the Family Fun Night, you will move from station to station with your child while engaging in fun and educational kinesthetic activities." A huge thank you to Mrs. Foley and Mrs. Cleaves for organizing what ought to be a spectacular event! Click here for more information!
Math & Movement Family Fun Night is also a great opportunity to volunteer at a school event. We are looking for 20 volunteers to help run the stations. The training for volunteers takes place from 5:00-6:00. Send Ms. V an email if you are able to volunteer at email@example.com.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns or something to share, please do not hesitate to give me a call, send an email or stop by!
Thank you to RLS Parent, Carrie Arnold and the students at Mt. Wachusett Community College for an amazing Science Day. Held the day before Spring Vacation, this was a big hit with all of the grades as we had over 20 science experiments for the children to explore. Thank you also to all of the families who donated supplies and to the PTO for supporting this event!
As the weather gets warmer, we hope to see more and more of you at our Walking Wednesdays. If you would like to join us please come to the Barre Police Department for an 8:00 departure!
Thank you to all of the families who participated in the Marvelous Milers Contest, we raised over $400 to benefit the 5th grade trip to Nature's Classroom. Throughout the day each grade walked/ran for 30 minutes. In total we logged 629 miles as a community! We look forward to seeing if we can surpass that goal in the Fall!
