Principal's Message

Rucker Families and Friends,

I hope your long weekend has been a treasured one! This short week begins with state testing for our 4th graders. Thank you in advance for your help in creating a positive testing environment for our kids by arriving on time and sending students with what they need. This is in an effort to minimize distractions throughout our day.

Thank you to those who donated to our incredible bunny bags! As always, we so appreciate your continued support for all we do. It was a great treat to send us into our long weekend.

Enjoy this beautiful day with your family!
