It is time to begin another great school year at W.G. Rhea and we are full steam ahead! I am excited that we will continue the great opportunities that we have within the P.S.S.D. We have added a wonderful new opportunity here at Rhea. We have a new special area class known as S.T.E.A.M. This class will focus on activities that encompass science, technology, engineering, art, and math for our K-2 students. We will also have morning news that will be broadcasted out to every classroom. This will be conducted by the students each day.
August 1st we will have parent orientation for first and second grades. First grade will be at 5:30 p.m. and second will be at 6:30 p.m. This will be held in the cafeteria and then parents will go to their child's homerooms. Attending orientation is very important as we will discuss many issues that effect not only the education of our students, but also the logistics of how to navigate the school year.
August 2nd will be the first day of school and we will dismiss at 10:45. Kindergarten orientation will be held at 8:30 a.m. the morning of August 2nd in the cafeteria. August 5th is the first full day of school. For Kindergarten, it is a girls' only day. August 6th is a boys' only day for Kindergarten.
Attendance is very important to your child's overall educational success. Please be on time each day.
This year, we have implemented a new on-line cafeteria management system. This system will allow parents to pay on-line, check balances, fill out free and reduced applications, and much more. We will be providing more information during orientation as well as on our website.
We are very excited to begin a new year at Rhea. We are home to the best teachers and staff who are dedicated each day to the safety and education of each student built upon a foundation of love and respect.
We look forward to going into 2019-2020 FULL STEAM AHEAD!
