Mrs. Squillini

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!

Hi!! My name is Rachel Squillini and I teach fifth grade at East Clayton Elementary School. This is my second year at East Clayton and my tenth year teaching. I previously taught both fourth and fifth grade at River Dell Elementary.

I was born in New York but moved to Cary, NC when I was four years old. I've lived in North Carolina ever since. I am the oldest of three kids. My younger brother lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife.  My sister is a senior at University of South Carolina. I graduated from North Carolina State University (GO PACK!!) with a bachelor's in Elementary Education and a concentration in Science.

I have been married to my loving husband, Anthony, for four years! Our son, Dallas, arrived on September 8, 2018 and we are loving this new adventure as parents! We love to travel, spend time at the pool and beach, attend Carolina Hurricanes hockey games and watch football! We are a house divided in both college and pro football. It makes for fun competition in the Squillini household. We also have four furbabies - two cats named Kobie and Piper and two dogs named Zeus and Ellie. 

Some other fun facts about me: my favorite color is pink! I love polka dots. Football is my favorite sport but I like attending all sporting events. I'm afraid of snakes and sharks. Spiders aren't my friends either. Can't wait to learn about all of you as the school year goes on!! 

JCPS Announcements

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

    Report cards went home today. Please make sure to go over these with your children, then sign and return the envelopes. Tomorrow night is Spirit Night at Culver's on Hwy 70 in Clayton, near CVS and Bojangles. Come enjoy some delicious dinner at Culver's from 5:00-8:00, and a portion of the proceeds comes back to the students here at RDE.

    We hope that everyone had a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday with their families. We only have 15 days of school until our break in December and we want to encourage everyone to make these days count. There is a PTA meeting on Tuesday evening at 6:00 in the River Dell media center. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and hear about all of the great things that our PTA has been up to. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!

    The weather is getting cooler, and we want to remind you to write your child's name inside of jackets, hats, gloves, etc. in case they end up in the lost and found. Also, please make sure names are written on student water bottles. We want to make sure that if items end up in the office we are able to return them quickly to their owners.
