Kindergarten Graduates

Congratulations to our kindergarten graduates! We are proud of all your hard work!

Congratulations, Ms. Penland!

We are proud to announce that Ms. Erin Penland was nominated and recognized as an Outstanding Teacher by Stewart Law Offices. Each year, Stewart Law Offices asks for the community to share personal stories about their favorite teacher and what makes them stand out above the rest. Way to be a difference-maker, Ms. Penland!

RES Wishing Day!

Our students have been reading Wishtree as a read aloud. Themes of the book include celebrating our differences, getting along, the power of words, friendship, and the importance of an accepting, loving community working together so all feel valued. As a way to celebrate and reflect upon the reading of this book, students were able to make a wish and add it to our Roebuck "wishtree."

Important Reminders

*School begins promptly at 7:45 am (the first bell rings at 7:40 & the tardy bell rings at 7:45). After 7:45, a parent or guardian must sign their child in at the front office.

*All car riders must be picked up by 2:45 each day. We do have a paid After School Care Program. Information can be provided by the front office.

*Please use the car lines to drop off and pick up your child.

Prescriptions from Nurse Beth

All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization certificate on file in order to stay in school. If you have been contacted about this, please make sure this is taken care of no later than Friday, September 14th.

If your child has been ill, remember the 24 Hour Rule of Thumb:

· 24 hours fever free without any fever reducing medications (Tylenol, Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school

· 24 hours without nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)

· 24 hours of receiving medication such as antibiotics, eye ointment/drops

Remember students may not transport medications to and from school. A parent/guardian must bring in all medications.

Let’s stay healthy! Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when good hand washing is practiced (before & after eating, after restroom use & playing outside).

It is my privilege to care for your child while here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
