RNE Newsletter March 16th, 2018
The Principal's Office
Dear RNE Family,
The extra day this week has made for a wonderful week of learning. Originally Monday was a professional learning day for teachers. Instead of just learning new concepts our teachers were able to try out their learning in classrooms. Our consultant was amazed at the problem solving abilities displayed in each room we visited. This was a very proud moment for us all!
Tomorrow we will have our ribbon cutting ceremony for our shade structure in the play area. This is has filled a need and is thanks to our generous community with the support of the RNE and Passion Foundations. Please take time to see our new covered play area.
Thank you so much for your generous support of our Pennies for Patients campaign. The sound of coins being poured into the buckets each morning makes me proud. Our students are so excited to crush cancer!
Spring is right around the corner. I am looking forward to the warmup next week!
Enjoy the weekend!
We’ve got spirit, YES WE DO, We’ve got spirit HOW ABOUT YOU?
It is time for another “Most Spirited Class” competition! Wear your RNE spirit wear (or something green) tomorrow, Friday, March, 16th and the class with the highest participation will be awarded the Spirit Wear poster to display on their classroom door!
If you need spirit wear, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Spring Book Fair is Coming!
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits.
Remember, all purchases benefit our school. See you at the Book Fair!
Georgia Milestones Information
Beginning April 12th, our students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will participate in the Georgia Milestones. Below you will find some pertinent information regarding the administration of the Milestones Assessment.
The Georgia Milestones Assessments will begin on April 12th and finish on April 24th. Students will test every other day. Each day, testing will begin promptly at 7:50. It is imperative that all students are here and on time during the entire testing window. Research shows that students test better when they take their assessment with their class, rather than on make-up days.
This year students in grades three and four will take the Reading sections 1, 2, and 3, as well as, both Math sections. Our students in fifth will take Reading sections 1, 2, and 3, Math, Science, and Social Studies sections 1 and 2.
Below you will find the dates of administration for each subject. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our Assistant Principal, Mr. Marcus Smith.
Roswell North Car Pool Policies
Courteous behavior is the rule in carpool!
Do not pass other cars unless specifically directed to do so by an officer or staff member.
Please do not use cell phones while in carpool areas.
All students must have a number. Please get a carpool number at registration or by request to the front office.
Carpool opens at 7:10 a.m. and closes at 7:40 am. If you drop off students after 7:40 you must sign them in at the front office.
Students may ONLY be released from the vehicle at the designated place by staff members in the carpool area.
Students should never be dropped off by a sidewalk in front of the school. This is a safety concern and could result in a citation to the driver by the Roswell Police.
Lost and Found
Next time you are in our building, please be sure to check out our Lost and Found located on the stage in the cafeteria. There are several unclaimed jackets - one might just belong to your student! We will be donating all unclaimed items to North Fulton Community Charities at the end of this month. - Thank you.
PLACEMENT CONSIDERATION FOR 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR
The Roswell North Elementary Administration is committed to placing each child in his/her best learning environment. An enormous amount of time and effort is devoted to place each child appropriately.
If you feel that your child has unique learning needs or if there are other considerations you would like to bring to our attention such as separate best friends, or family/personal challenges, you may choose to complete the 2018-2019 Placement Consideration Form that is available in the front office. As you list the characteristics of a teacher you feel will best meet your child’s needs, please do not list the obvious characteristics such as “organized, nurturing, structured, positive, motivating, challenging, creative,” etc. We believe all our teachers possess the previously listed characteristics. The letters will be shared with your child’s teacher in the fall in order to ensure your child’s needs are thoroughly communicated.
While we do welcome your input regarding your child’s individual learning needs, we cannot accept emails, phone calls, nor can we hold personal conferences regarding student placement. Due to changes in personnel and class sizes, some teachers will change grade levels and staff teaching assignments will not be finalized until summer.Forms that name specific teachers will not be considered.
Please keep in mind that placement consideration forms should be the exception rather than the rule, and the final decision on class placement resides with the school.
If you choose to complete the RNE Placement Consideration Form it is due on or before 3:00 pm on Friday, March 30. Forms will not be accepted after this deadline. RNE Placement Consideration Forms should be returned to the front office in a sealed envelope to the attention of Laureen Wagner, Curriculum Support.
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we work together for the benefit of all students at Roswell North.
