A message from Mireles

Hello Patriot families,


I hope this update finds you well and that your family is staying happy and healthy.


Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week and I cannot thank our teachers enough for the incredible job they have done implementing distance learning for Rawlinson students.


Teachers have transitioned their homes into virtual classrooms, providing high-quality instruction from a distance. As I visit their virtual classes, I can see and hear their passion for education, daily. Students thriving in a learning environment that we never could have planned for.

Teachers collaborating for hours upon hours, late into the evening, to find new and innovative ways to engage their students. Teachers thinking WAY outside of the box, to capture the hearts and minds of their students.


I couldn't be prouder of my teachers!


Please take a moment, and thank a teacher.

Tag us in a note or picture thanking a Rawlinson teacher on our Twitter page. @NISDRAWLINSON

We are currently working on a safe and efficient method of distribution for the following:

Thank you for your patience as we develop the best possible course of action. These plans will be communicated to you soon.
