Week of March 4, 2019
Save The Dates
There are several dates coming up in March, April, and May to mark on your calendar that you may or may not know about. There will be more details to come on all of the night events as we get closer to them.
March 11-15, 1:30 pm: Minimum Day Dismissal. Conferences all week. See details below.
Tuesday, March 26, 7:15 am: Trimester 2 Honor Roll Breakfast.
Friday, March 28, 7 pm: We will be showing the movie Angst and have a panel discussion with high school students and experts after. We are finding that a lot of kids have anxiety and depression and feel that it is important to address this topic. Students will also see the movie that day during school and be able to ask questions to a panel.
Friday, March 29: Super Minimum Day. Dismissal at 12:06 pm.
Monday, April 1- Friday, April 5: Spring Break. No School.
Thursday, April 11, 6-7:30 pm: Open House/STEAM Fair.
Thursday, April 25, 7 pm: Spring Concert.
Thursday, May 2, 7 pm: Vaping/Juul Parent Information Night. Sequoia Union High School District is doing this same evening in April. I asked the organizer to bring this presentation to RCSD because there is a huge increasing trend nationwide of middle school and high school students vaping. Kennedy will host because I organized this, but we will open this up to all parents in the District. (Same thing with Angst in March).

Math Acceleration For Next Year
This past week I found out that the tests students will take to determine if they can accelerate in math will take place at the end of May. I will continue working with students after school in March, April, and May who want more of a challenge in math and/or may want to accelerate next year.
I unfortunately have to reschedule the planned 6th grade session for this coming Monday due to a meeting that has come up. Instead we will meet on Monday, March 11, at 1:40 pm in the library. 7th grade will still meet as planned, Wednesday, March 6, at 3:15 pm in the library.
Second Trimester Grades
The next Principal’s Coffee is this Thursday. Someone will be coming from the bond team to share information and plans for the different phases of school renovations that will take place over the next couple of years and take questions. We will go over information about the State science test that will take place in May for 8th graders. This is the first year that scores will count on this test. We will conclude by visiting some classrooms.
