Parent Communication


Big picture

Message from the principal...

Good Afternoon RPEL Families,

I am trying out a new communication format and I would love your feedback. Hopefully you find the new format of my weekly communication easier to read and access information. Mr. Ponazzo, the Principal at RPI encouraged me to try this format. See, you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Free parenting Classes!

Free Money for Classrooms

Now that I have your attention we have an opportunity to raise money for your child's classroom. Foster Frederick and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company have a program that donates $10.00 to your child's classroom for an insurance quote. Yes, that is it, a simple quote with no further obligations from you.

Bus Stop Help


We have received calls and emails from parents that are concerned about students standing too close to the road in the morning, especially along Giles Road. They have talked about students almost standing in the street and near misses. We have reminded kids to stay back to stay safe, talked about distracted drivers, etc. Please, no matter where your kids wait for the bus, have this conversation with them. Remind them to use the blinking lights that were donated. It takes a village!!
