RPE Strong -- August 27, 2021

What's Happening at RPE

Great things are happening as teachers and students continue building their classroom communities and setting expectations together. We've spent the past two weeks working together to create classroom Treatment Agreements and learn about our campus wide expectations of PRIDE. All classrooms from Kinder through 5th and Specials have created their Treatment Agreements and had explicit teaching in PRIDE. See a few examples below and we encourage you to ask your student(s) about theirs!

Curriculum Night Information

On Thursday, September 2 parents will receive an email from their child's teacher with a video version of Curriculum Night. This will include information about what learning looks like in your child's particular grade level. There will be an opportunity at the end of the video for parents to register for Zoom Q & A sessions the following week.

Culture of Caring (or C2)

We are proud that RPE students and faculty embrace a Culture of Caring. Students are encouraged to wear their C2 shirts on Wednesdays. Each month teachers recognize and nominate one student as the class' C2 representative for demonstrating a culture of caring and LISD's ethical principals.

Order your child a C2 shirt by August 31. Click HERE to order.

Coming Soon...Mrs. Natasha, our new receptionist!

Our office has been short staffed for the first few weeks of school, but soon we will have a new face at our front desk. Natasha Lewis will be joining us the week of September 7th. Natasha is the parent of two students here at RPE and is excited to join our staff. She is full of positivity & cheer and is sure to provide great customer service to our families, students, and staff.

Early Release Wednesdays

Early release Wednesdays will continue throughout the year. If there are 5 school days in the week, we will release at 1:25 on Wednesday. On short weeks, we do not release early so the dismissal will be at 2:55.

The month of September, we have early release on:

September 1, 15, 22, & 29.

No Early Release on September 8 as Monday, September 6 is a HOLIDAY.

Grandparent Lunch to be Rescheduled

Unfortunately, we are sad to say that due to our COVID protocols at this time (currently in RED stage), our campus will not be hosting a Grandparent's Lunch in September. We hope that once LISD goes back to the YELLOW stage we can reschedule this event.
Big picture
