May/June 2018 Chalkboard News

Principal Note

Another school year is rapidly coming to a close. It has been a great year filled with laughter, learning and growth. Our students are able to demonstrate so much growth both academically and socially. The last few weeks of school will be filled with more learning, plenty of assessments and a lot of fun activities. Check out the calendars at the end of the newsletter for all of the upcoming events.

Within a few days, Ms. LoGrasso will be welcoming her third child, a girl, into her family. She will be going on maternity leave soon and will enjoy time with her family between now and next August. I hope you all join me in wishing Ms. LoGrasso well over the next three months. With Ms. LoGrasso's absence comes a long-term substitute to fill in between now and the summer break. I'm sure our substitute will do an outstanding job. It is important to note that no matter how amazing the substitute is, there is no way to fill the shoes of Ms. LoGrasso. Please bear with us as we embark on the busiest time of the school year without our superstar in the office.

2018 Adventure Fun Run/Walk

It is time for our annual fun run! This year, the students are going on an adventure and tackling obstacles throughout the course. The fun run/walk is our biggest fundraising event for the year and funds the majority of our activities and incentives during the school year.

Your donations will help pay for:

  • Field Trips & Transportation
  • Student and Teacher Incentives/Supplies/Activities
  • Additional Playground Updates

Romeo Reads Project

It is so important for students to read all year round and this endeavor will help to support students of RCS in their reading for pleasure efforts. This is a project that will start this spring and continue to grow and expand as we tap into community resources. The mission is to encourage and support students to read all year long. The Twitter and Remind accounts will be used to send out reading reminders, tips and to notify families of any reading events that may be promoted over the summer.

The Twitter handle is @RomeoRdsProject

Parents can sign up for Remind via this Link Romeo Reads Project Remind Link

Green School Environmental Tip

Earth Friendly Landscaping

When landscaping your yard, you can protect your kids, pets, and the environment from harm. Use pesticides sparingly. Put mulch around trees and plants. Water your lawn only when it needs it and choose plants native to Michigan. Once established, they will tolerate dry weather and resist disease.
