Weekly Newsletter - 6/17/19


Hello RHE families,

I hope that you had a wonderful week. Happy Father’s Day to all of our RHE dads! I can’t believe that we just finished our last full week of the year.

Please see below for information and events happening at RHE!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Staffing Updates

Physical Education – I am sad to share Ms. Kate Ortendahl will not be with us next year. This is due to the consolidation of the Middle Schools last school year, and no movement within the department. I am hopeful that Ms. Ortendahl will be back with us in the future.

Music – I am also sad to share that Mrs. Lachele Vaughan will not be our music teacher next year. Although Mrs. Vaughan will not be at RHE, she will be teaching music at Holland Middle School. Our students will still get to sing with Mrs. Vaughan when they move onto HMS.

Both Mrs. Vaughan and Ms. Ortendahl have had a great impact within our school community!

RHE Community and Family Night

On June 18th, 6:30-7:30, family and community members are invited to come and visit RHE one last time before the renovations. Community members will be able to view the school, write a memory on a wall, and say goodbye to RHE as it currently exists.

This is not a drop off event. Students will need to stay with parents and guardians at all times.

Fourth Marking Period Report Cards

Report cards will be released to the Home Access Center (HAC) at 4:00pm on Thursday, June 20th. A paper copy of the report card will be sent home with students on June 20th. Please keep in mind that teacher assignments for the 2019-2020 school year for all students will be available in HAC on Monday, August 19th

From the School Nurse

Please pick up your child’s medication by the last day of school. CRSD does not allow children to carry medications, so they must be picked up by an adult. Medications not picked up will have to be disposed of. If your child needs medication next year, please bring in the forms and medications by the first day of school. If your child borrowed any clothing during the school year, please return the clothing so other children will have it when needed.

Thank you. We wish you all a wonderful summer.

Summer Resources for Children

Children need a break in the summer, but it's a great idea to provide opportunities for them to maintain their skills during these months. Below you'll find a list of resources available to students to help them stay sharp in Reading and Math. These are activities that the children may find to be very entertaining. I highly suggest that parents take time to view these and share them with their children.

In addition, you'll also find summer reading lists at the following links:
