The Support Our Schools Rally is today from 5:00-5:45 at the steps of City Hall. This is an opportunity to join together to let the City Council know the importance of fully funding RPS schools. Please consider coming out to support the cause!


School individual pictures are coming home. These were taken the Friday before spring break, so if your child was absent then he/she does not have a picture packet.


These pictures either need to be purchased or returned. If you purchase them online, please return the envelope with the online payment code to me. Please remember, these pictures are not FREE!


International Night is tomorrow night 4/12. It is a new format and sounds really great! Read more about it in the PTA newsletter. If your child attends International Night he/she may use the stamped passport as a homework pass for the night.Just have your child bring the stamped passport to class for a "pass" on homework.


There is a two-hour early dismissal on Friday. Students will be dismissed at 1:35 (parent pick-up, carpool, and vans), 1:45 buses, 1:45 BAS.


Minds in Motion Rehearsals:

There will be two rehearsals at school from 1:15-3:15Pm on Wednesday, April 13 and Wednesday, April 20. Please make every effort to have your child attend these in full. These are the only two times that the entire fourth grade is coming together to figure out the staging of the dances.
