Braves Bulletin September 2018

Your stop for all things important to our RM Moore Families

A note from Dr. May

Hello Families! This has been a busy and exciting month. It is wonderful to see new friendships and collaboration through the building, for both parties the students and the staff. Change can be frightening, and the unknown can be worrisome, but I know that we are doing wonderful things this year and all that is coming will show how amazing we are when we work together.
September is going to be a very busy month too! I hope everyone has put our Curriculum Night on their calendars and plan to join us for this great event. We hope to see you there!
Thank you very much for your diligence in the mornings and the afternoons with our line in car riders. Things are moving faster, and our process is helping students arrive earlier.
Please sign up for our Remind 101 messages. I will start using it more to keep you updated.
As always, I am grateful for the opportunity to lead this school!
