YOU ARE INVITED!
This year the RCS Drama Club has chosen a musical play for you, A Cinderella Christmas. Students, under the direction of Mrs. Meredith, Mrs. Kondrick and Ms. Bofinger, have been working hard not only memorizing lines, but also songs. There are quite a few group songs and the audience is encouraged to join in! There are also some solos/duets for you to enjoy. We hope to see everyone at the performance; there is a little "treat" at the end. So, come out and see what the "treat" is!
In addition, we had a great crew of designers this fall, supervised by Ms. Jacobs and Mrs. Blair. Students in grades 4, 5 and 6 have been hard at work for months creating all of the sets and props needed for this year’s production of A Cinderella Christmas. They are very excited for everyone to come see all of their beautiful creations and hope to see you there!
You are cordially invited to come to Ripley Central School's Large Gym on Monday, December 22nd, at 6:30 PM to share in the fun of A Cinderella Christmas!
Who's washing their hands in the Health Office?
The Preschoolers! They have completed their hand washing lessons just in time for National Handwashing Awareness Week in December. Ask your preschooler about the importance of hand washing to fight the battle against germs. Washing your hands is the single most important action you can take daily to prevent the spread of illness. Parents, you can reinforce this essential skill at home everyday! This will help keep your child and everyone around them healthier this cold and flu season. Have a happy and healthy winter break!

Kindergarten Parents gave of their time to our wonderful Gingerbread Week! We have many people to thank for their help with Gingerbread Week. We painted a Gingerbread Village in the hall (thank you Mrs. Braun), we made gingerbread hats, gingerbread stories and gingerbread houses! Parent (and grandparent/sister) helpers included Mrs. Williams, Mr. Chess, Ms. Safford, Mr. Babcock, Mr. Woodward, Ms. Meredith, Mrs. Meredith, Mr. Bennett, Mr. Pinzok, Mr. Miller, Ms. Lukasiak and as always our own special Mrs. Wilkinson! Some parents could not attend but overwhelmed us with supplies and some parents even did both. We are a very blessed school. We love our parent volunteers!
