The Principal's Office

Short weeks seem to go the fastest! Our teachers and students have done a fantastic job adjusting to our short week. I have seen some amazing teaching and learning happening in all grade levels.

Wednesday we welcomed our Dad's club into many of our classrooms as mystery readers. The students were very excited to have a special guest!

Tuesday September 12 we will have our annual hearing and vision screening for students in grades 1, 3, and 5. Thank you so much to our volunteers who will be here to make this a successful event! We couldn't do it without you!

The parent/staff kickball game originally scheduled for Friday September 15 has been postponed to the spring. Stay tuned for more details.



Get Involved at RNE!

Tutors and Mentors needed !!!

There are students at RNE that need your help. You can make a difference by helping students in reading and math. For more information please email Joy Fofana at fofana@fultonschools.org. All volunteers need to be screened through the Fulton County website before volunteering at the school. Go to community then partners and volunteers to register.

Career Day

We will have a career day for all 3rd-5th grade students on Friday October 20th from 8-10am. In order to make this event a success I need volunteers to come speak about their job and what steps they took to get there. You will present for 15 minutes per class and rotate throughout the grade level. You do not need to have a student in 3rd -5th to volunteer. If you are interested in presenting please contact Joy Fofana at fofana@fultonschools.org or you can sign up on the counseling websitewww.rnecounselors.weebly.com.

PTA Reflections

The Reflections Arts Recognition Program is a national arts recognition and achievement program for students. It provides an excellent opportunity for students to unleash their creative talents and be inspired, express themselves imaginatively in their artwork, experience the joy and fun of making art, tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme and receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

“WITHIN REACH" is this years’ PTA Reflections theme. Encourage your students’ creativity to shine!

Students may submit an entry in any of these fields:

• Dance Choreography

• Film Production

• Literature

• Music Composition

• Photography

• Visual arts

For more information on the Reflections Program or to obtain a student entry form, please visit: https://www.rnepta.com/reflections.

All entries with proper documentation must be submitted to the front office by Friday, October 6th, 2017. Selected entries will then be properly prepared to send to the Georgia PTA.
