RHE Literacy Days

Nonfiction Day 11/6

I Love To Write Day 11/15

Our RHE Literacy Community continues to blossom each and every day. In the month of November, students will share their love of writing with others and enjoy nonfiction texts during Library. In addition, students will hear from a real-life author/illustrator, Bryan Collier. I Love to Write day was founded in 2002 by a Delaware-based author John Riddle, a nonfiction and self-help writer, to get kids writing in schools and encourage adults to rekindle an old dream. As adults, it is important to lead by example and show our children that writing is a way to express yourself. Write a poem, letter, greeting card, essay, short story-the possibilities are endless!

Before and After School Access

Please remember that students and parents do not have access to the building before or after school for security reasons. We still have students in the building for clubs and activities. If students forget an item, they can retrieve it the next school day. Champions parents and students are not permitted to the classrooms in the evening or in the morning before school begins.

RHE Spirit Wear

Be on the look out next week for the launch of our RHE Spirit Wear website. Sweatshirts, T-shirts, PJ Bottoms, Hats-Just in time for holiday gifts!!
