Rolling Hills Elementary

Weekly Newsletter - 1/02/19


Hello RHE families,

It is with great joy I send you season’s greetings. It was an exciting day filled with fun activities. We ended the day as group for a celebration activity and a whole school Sing Along.

This has been a wonderful and exciting year so far at Rolling Hills Elementary. Our students are working hard in their classes and enjoying the many activities we have had this year. Our teachers are dedicated to our students by finding new ways to make learning engaging and fun. The support from the Home and School Association and our many dedicated parents has never been stronger.

I feel privileged and honored to be able to work in this supportive and amazing community. I am grateful for your help, trust, input and desire to make Rolling Hills the best environment for our children.

This is the time of year for rejoicing and for rededication. I truly hope you will have the time to spend with those people in your life that mean the most to you and enrich your life. Please give yourself the time to recharge your spirit, and rededicate yourself to the people and causes that mean the most to you. Savor every minute with your loved ones. Laugh a lot and love even more. I sincerely wish you the healthiest and happiest New Year possible!
