RES Principal Weekly Updates

Principal Updates for September 12, 2019: 

  • We had quite a day!Today was picture day and for some reason the rapid fire of flashes caused our fire alarm to go off. Not once, not twice, but three times.Our wonderful fire department came to trouble shoot and stayed with us for a good portion of the day. There was no danger and the good news is that since we evacuated twice, it counts toward our 10 required drills.Give your child(ren) kudos for doing a wonderful job and being awesome in the cold, damp air.Hopefully the rain didn’t wreck any pictures.There is always retake day.
  • Back to School Night is Tuesday, September 17th at 6:00.From 6-6:45 students and parents visit K-4 classrooms and check out what is happening this year as well as stop in at the Book Fair in the library. At 6:45 there will be a whole school assembly as we welcome the new year in.Join us if you can.
  • The Scholastic Book Fair is all next week. The money earned from this fundraiser will provide books for the new Book Vending Machine.Students attend the book fair during their library special during the week.If they would like them to purchase a book then send in an envelope with money on their library day.The book fair will also be open on Back to School Night for families to browse and purchase books.We can use some parent volunteers to man the fair during the days and Tuesday evening.If you would like to help, please sign up. Here is the link to that sign up genius. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d4eafac23a64-scholastic2Thank you to Stephanie Tabit for organizing this.
  • Parent Volunteers needed.The Principal’s Advisory Council will be starting back up in October.We are looking for two new parent members as Matthew Curtin and Kelly Kingsbury have finished their two-year term. This council is made up of parents, teachers, and myself.You offer the parent perspective to conversations and issues.We usually meet the second Monday of most months at 3:00. October is an exception.We will be meeting October 7th (first Monday because of holiday the week after.)
