What you need to know & do to be informed for this school years' events:


Welcome back to school! We hope that you and your kiddos have enjoyed the summer!

We will do our best to communicate with you in the MOST effective manner while respecting your busy schedules.

Each week you will receive an email containing upcoming events, announcements & notes from your teacher. Please be sure to take a look! If something comes up in the middle of the week, I will update the newsletter with that info.

There will be occasions where you will be "invited" to RSVP to an event, please respond, this allows us to see that you are informed of the event. When your child asks, we can accurately notify them that you are aware of the event & if you will or will not be attending.(They always worry :) )

In the newsletter you will find access to common sites that you will need to visit (Home access center, lunch account, teacher emails, PTA website, RES website, & even RES' Facebook page)

We will try to make communication between school and home as simple as possible. If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact your child's teacher. We are happy to help!

Here's to a GREAT year,
