Message from Julie

Dear RISD Elementary Parents,

Happy Mother's Day to all you rock star, superhero moms out there! Thank you for sharing your kids with us! And thank you for all you do! I hope you all have something wonderful and relaxing planned - with no laundry/dishes/cleaning/cooking in sight.

Are you getting excited for the Greatest Show - our end of the year concert on May 28 at 630PM at the Academy? Since parking was a bit of a nightmare at the holiday concert, we are going to try something new - optional busing from each elementary school. Bus will depart from WES at 530 and from SME at 545. We will be sending up a sign up sheet for this service - hopefully it will be helpful!

This year’s 6th grade class is hosting three fundraisers to raise money for their class trip!

On Saturday, May 18th from 10-1, stop by outside of Wings to get your car washed and buy some baked treats! We will accept all kind donations.

Need help with some yard work? Have an event to set up or break down? SME 6th graders are ready to help! Contact Melinda Ricker at melinda.c.ricker@gmail.com or Comfort Halsey-Leckerling at chalsey.leckerling@gmail.com. Choose what you pay, and all proceeds will fund the trip!

Flamingo Flocking has begun! YOU can participate in this fun and festive new tradition! Three flocks of pink plastic flamingos have landed in our three towns, and they may visit your lawn! Donations gratefully accepted for their removal! To send the flock to a friend (or just to learn more about it) contact Amy Kosakowski at akosakowski@rivendellschool.org


Any further questions? Call SME and ask for Mr. C or Ms. K or email Ms. K at sklinkenberg@rivendellschool.org

Summerscapes signups will be out the week after break. Mrs. Cole is planning Summerscapes, and is working on a solution for staffing. If you are interested in helping out, you can reach her at jcole@rivendellschool.org

We are looking for donations of rakes, trowels, etc. for some of our planting projects. Please bring any items in!

Similarly, if you have any balls/frisbees, etc that you would like to donate to our schools, we would love them! Now that the weather is nice, recess is much more fun!

Have a spectacular week!
