Weekly Newsletter - Summer

August 6, 2019

Hello RHE families,

I hope that you have been enjoying the summer with family and friends. My family has had an exciting summer traveling to North Carolina to visit family and to go to the beach. We are using the next couple weeks to relax, play outside, fish, and enjoy the nights staying up late until we have to get back into our regular school routine.

We have been working hard here at RHE to prepare for this school year. We are excited to see all of our students soon!

I apologize for the length of this email, but there is a lot of information that needs to be communicated. I will also be sending additional information as we get closer to the start of school.

Please remember that we are at our temporary location at the former Richboro Middle school while our school undergoes renovation.

Summer Resources for Children

Children need a break in the summer, but it's a great idea to provide opportunities for them to maintain their skills during these months. Below you'll find a list of resources available to students to help them stay sharp in Reading and Math. These are activities that the children may find to be very entertaining. I highly suggest that parents take time to view these and share them with their children.

In addition, you'll also find summer reading lists at the following links:
