No school for Students on February 12th and February 15th.

RNE makes my heart flutter!!!!

This week our first grade families had the pleasure of watching their children perform. It was a spectacular show! Ms. Weingart, Ms. Malone and the entire first grade team worked very hard to ensure students were ready! The smiles were contagious! I am looking forward to our 3rd grade performances next month!

I hope you have made plans to attend our STEAM to PBL Family Night next week. Family night for students in grades K-2 will be on Tuesday, February 9th and grades 3-5 on the 10th. The fun will start at 5pm and wrap up by 7pm. We will have opportunities for families to participate in various stations. You don’t want to miss it!

Tomorrow morning I will attend the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. I was able to see our teams practicing last week. I know they will represent RNE well!

The stage is finally clear! Beginning the week of February 16th we will begin our lunch visitor schedule. I appreciate your patience with this and look forward to seeing you! We will now be able to accommodate lunch visitors. I appreciate your patience.

Class Pictures Photographers will be returning on February 29th to take class photos. More details to come as the date gets closer

Hardship Transfers Applications

An online application is available until February 15, 2016, for parents who wish to apply for a 2016-2017 hardship transfer for their child(ren) or to renew a current hardship to another Fulton elementary, middle or high school. Hardship transfer requests are those that relate to medical reasons, curriculum differences, childcare situations or for employees' children.

Parents will use an online form to enter and submit their information. Hard copy applications will not be accepted with the exception of medical transfers which require pertinent medical provider's signatures and documentation.

· How to become a volunteer
Register at the Fulton County Schools Volunteer Page. Complete the mandatory online training.

Complete the volunteer application.

Wait for a confirmation email from Fulton County Schools.

Visit the school and begin volunteering.



  • School Begins at 7:40 a.m.
    The morning bell rings and academic instruction begins at 7:40 a.m. We ask that all students are in their classrooms by 7:40 a.m. so that the day starts off smoothly. Students who arrive after the bell has rung must be signed in at the front office by a parent or guardian.

· After School Programs
Per Fulton County policy our school doors will be locked at dismissal. Therefore, no one will be allowed to enter school once dismissal has begun. All after school programs will dismiss out front or in the carpool lane, depending on the class. Instructor will notify you as to the area for pickup.

  • Transportation Changes
    Anytime you change the mode of transportation for your child, please write a note to the teacher informing of the change. Also, please put their regular way home on the note as well as the change. Also, due to liability issues, Fulton County does not allow children to ride a bus other than their assigned bus to another student’s home for play dates, birthday parties, etc.

· Family Trips

Student absences for family trips are considered unexcused, unless you receive prior approval from the principal. Parents must submit, in writing, a request for the days to be excused, stating the educational relevance of the trip. Students must also submit a written journal of the trip highlighting what they’ve learned. The request for the absence must be submitted to Ms. Lilly no later than two weeks prior to travel. Approval is at the discretion of the principal.

· FCBOE Text Alerts

Parents, now you can receive emergency alerts on your cell. Just text “YES” to 88544. With this free service, you will receive text messages notifying you of inclement weather, safety alerts, school closings or other important information impacting the Fulton county School System.

· Lost and Found
Lost and Found is located at the end of the 5th grade hall. Unclaimed items will be donated to NFCC donated twice a month; once in the middle of the month and again at the end of the month.

  • Birthday Treats
    Due to the increasing cases of food allergies among our students, we ask that birthday celebration treats be non-food items. Suggestions include pencils, stickers, etc. The front office staff will make sure that the teacher is aware that the items were dropped off and the students will receive them that day.
  • Students Returning to School After Hours
    It has been RNE’s policy for students not to enter their classroom after hours. The custodians are busy cleaning and teachers sometimes are involved with meetings and planning.

· Students who eat on the stage must follow the same lunchroom expectations as the students who are not eating with their parents. Proper manners include:

staying in their seat

raising their hands

purchasing all snacks/ice cream before sitting down

students will not be allowed to leave the stage until lunch dismissal

students will not be allowed to have their friends join them on stage.

  • Upcoming Dates
    Please visit our school website at roswellnorthelementary.com and click on calendar to keep up with all the latest happenings around Roswell North plus a lot more!


Please welcome the 2015-16 Partners in Education sponsors for RNE. If you have any questions or would like to become a sponsor please contact Tracy Moore at btcmoore@bellsouth.net or Jennifer Whitworth at jwhitworth05@gmail.com with any questions.
