Box Tops for Education

Our submission for the Box Tops for Education for November 2016 is complete and we had over 7000 box tops. This will mean about $700 for our school. Many of our classes had super submissions but the winner, with 1,016 valid box tops was Mrs. Lang's 4th grade class. Mrs. Lang's class will receive $50 for their classroom account and free POP20 for November 4th! Congratulations for a job well done.


The top class in 6th grade was Mrs. Sutherland and the top in 5th grade was Mrs. Douglass. Each grade had some very close competition so honorable mention goes to Mrs. Orbison, Mrs. Watwood, and Mrs. Burney. The names of the students in all six of these classes will go into a drawing for gift certificates for the December Book Fair. Those winners will be announced closer to the time of the book fair.


Thank you to all the teachers, students, and parents who helped make this a success!

PROCEDURE TO ENTER THE SCHOOL

RIS has implemented a security system in which you have to be buzzed into the school by the front office. The camera and speaker is located on the far right door. Here is how it will work: 1 - Turn towards the camera and press the button. 2 - Explain the purpose of your visit. 3 - Front desk will buzz you through the door (far right). This procedure will also apply to after school care. Your ID card will still be required when conducting business, checking in-out, etc.

Car Rider Guidelines

1. Hang the number(s) on the rear view mirror, or hold it upright for the carline controller to see. (If it is lying flat on the dashboard, behind a decal, or _behind the upper shaded windshield, it is not visible.)

2. Refrain from using cell phone in car line.

3. If picking up more than one child, display all numbers at the same time, in a horizontal fashion. NOT one at a time.

4. If you do not have your car line number, park and go to the front office to check out your child.

5. Show only one number needed per child. The extra number should be removed, and used for others who may pick up your child.

6. Remember that we are a no tobacco campus. Please do not smoke in the car rider line.
