Super Spike News
May 24, 2020
With less than a month of school left before the summer break, there are only three spirit day Fridays to go. Friday, May 29th would have been Field Day at RES. As such, this Friday's spirit day is a sports theme. Wear college, professional, or your own sports team’s gear and submit your photo to the shared Google album! Be sure to check out Ms. Ortendahl's and Ms. McGill's distance learning webpages for fun Field Day activities.
This is a friendly reminder that there is no distance learning on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day. Whatever your plans, enjoy the well-deserved break!
Together, we've got this! Hang in there and let's finish the school year off strong!
