Channel your summer persona and wear your t-shirts, tropical shirts, shorts, and sandals and enjoy the smoothie bar and pizza lunch. On an upbeat note, on Mid-Winter Meltdown Day, there are only 30 days until Spring officially arrives!

District #279 Foundation's "A Night Out" Event

Rice Lake was well represented at the District #279 Foundation's "A Night Out" Event on Friday, February 12th. The theme was School Spirit and Leslie Green created a great RL centerpiece for the table I was at. Jason and Alyssa DeRusha were there and during his keynote Jason talked about how special Rice Lake is and complimented the entire staff. Amy Paton and her PROS were featured in a video highlighting the work of the Foundation which gives grants to projects developed by staff members. If you have never written or received a Foundation grant, this is a great opportunity to fund a special project for you and your students.

Thank you to Ann Marie for sharing the idea to join in on National Flannel Day last week. Look at this great group of Roadrunners dressing in their flannel finest. Who will find the next special celebration for us to participate?
