2nd Place for RSPS at the Destination Imagination Challenge

For the 3rd year in a row, RSPS entered a middle school team into the worldwide STEAM challenge program, Destination Imagination. This year’s team is made up of four 7th grade girls: Jocelin Williams, Abby Nelson, Campbell Peters and Kate Shutz. Once again, Kevin Nelson (dad to Madelyn-8th, Abby-7th, and Sophia-3rd) is their very committed and patient Team Manager. On Saturday, March 9th, the RSPS team, “Make America Oof Again”, participated in the Regional DI Tournament at UMBC and took 2nd place in their middle school division! This win advances them to the Affiliate/State DI Tournament which will happen on Saturday, March 30th, also at UMBC.



Congratulations to the entire team and please consider coming out to UMBC on March 30th to cheer them on at the State Tournament, where they’ll have a chance to move on to the Global Finals in Kansas City, Missouri!

Aaliyah Perez Represents RSPS at the Howard County Public Library Spelling Bee

Big shout out to Aaliyah Perez who represented RSPS in grand fashion last night during the Howard County Library Spelling Bee!


Aaliyah was one of 66 contestants. She made it through seven solid rounds with only 20 students left competing for the grand prize.


Mrs. Shontz, who went to support Aaliyah shared, "I am so amazed by how these students put their critical thinking skills to the test in order to strategize the correct spelling.

"What is the language of origin?"

"Can I hear it in a sentence please?"

"Can you repeat the word?"


What joy on their faces when they got the word right! And how polite they were when they had to walk off the stage."

RSPS 8th Grade Girls Make it to CYO Championship Game

8th grade girls made it to the CYO Championship game on Saturday at 2 at Loyola High School. We are so proud of these girls. Most of the team have been playing together since second grade! This is a great way to start the end of their RSPS experience.

HSA

The HSA is committed to supporting our school and our families. We meet monthly as an executive board to discuss upcoming events, pertinent information regarding our school, and how we plan to support our school and its programs. Agendas for the monthly executive board meetings are not shared prior to meetings but are posted on our school website following the meetings. We also have three general assembly meetings each year. General Assembly meetings serve to inform families of our budget, vote on our executive board members, share school wide information, and other relevant information. Agendas for the general assembly meetings are shared prior to the meetings and then posted on our school website as well. As we are working to better meet the needs of our school and our parents the executive board will be taking time to review our bylaws and our budget for the upcoming year. We are looking forward to continuing to collaborate with the school, support our families and teachers, and form a united front in the best interests of our school, our families, and most importantly our children. If you have any questions feel free to email us at rspshsa@resstpaul.org
