Our Mission

Restoration is all about the process of rebuilding. As we open this week on the heels of a tumultuous winter storm we want to focus on the process of recovering from the storm. I know everyone's experience was different last week, and some of us are still experiencing aftermath of the storm some with no water, no power, no heat. As I sit wondering what will we face this week when we return, I question how do we approach this week of unknowns? At this moment, I honestly don't know. What I do know is that although storms can be very dangerous and affect a number of areas simultaneously, they do not last forever. So as we rebuild from this storm, let's be assured that as a family, we have the strength, support, and resources we need to put broken pieces back together. We will continue to demonstrate RPMExcellence and collectively do what is needed for each other as we continue to Build Children, Character, and Community Everyday!

We will reschedule dates for our remaining Black History Month Activites...Stay tuned for new dates and times.


Help us help your child each school day by ensuring they are fully prepared for face-to-face instruction.

  • Students must bring their devices fully charged each day.
  • Students must bring their chargers each day.
  • Students must bring the required materials (paper, pencil, journal, etc.) for their classes each day.
  • Students must have on a clean mask (provided by parent).
  • Students must wear a face shield (provided by the school).

These are the very basics that are required for your child to have a successful learning experience. When students aren't prepared it slows down learning for our virtual and face-to-face students. We are in a pandemic currently and do not have extra staff, space, nor materials for students who come unprepared. We are not sharing materials. Therefore it is each households responsibility to ensure students arrive at school fully prepared each day. Parents please help us help your child by making sure they prepare all materials nightly; then check their backpacks, and bring them to school daily.

Building Children, Character, and Community Everyday

“A hundred years from now it will not matter, what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove; but the world would be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
