Staff and students had their school pictures taken last week and we expect proofs to be able to be sent home soon. These pictures make excellent gifts for the upcoming holidays and any proceeds go right back to our school for the children. Please look for more information soon.
Our first fall "Taking It To The Streets" event was held this week at Grove Park Apartments. We had terrific Rhea staff support and lot's of good relationship building time. Thanks to all of the parents and students that were able to attend. Our next "Streets" event will be October 7 at Ogburn Park. Please come and join us for some good fellowship together. We will also have some really good reading strategies presented by some of our staff and hotdogs to eat.
Our Book Fair will begin September 19 which also coincided with our Fall Cookout. This is always a fun time for parents. Please come out and join us for lunch and visit the Book Fair while you are here.
Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for September 22-25. These conferences are really helpful for parents to see how well their children are doing. Teachers will go through report cards and other data that will be useful as we go through the year. I do require all teachers to meet with a parent for every child. We love good school/home relationships!!!
