    Carpool has been running so smoothly in the mornings.  We want to remind parents that you should not drop off students at the top of the bus driveway to walk down to school.  You can walk from your home or take them through carpool line.  We appreciate your cooperation with this as we try to keep everyone safe. We want to thank everyone who attended Heritage Day on Saturday.  We had an amazing turn out, and we can't wait to do it again next year.

    We are really excited about our staff/parent basketball game for this Friday, March 11th.  We will be playing against Thanksgiving Elementary at Archer Lodge Middle School.  Our women's team of parents and teachers will be playing at 6pm.  Our men's team will be playing at 7pm.  Admission is one non-perishable food item for our Backpack Buddies program.  This is such a great opportunity to help our families in need.

    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.

    We wanted to update all of our morning carpool families, as well as our morning walkers. All students will now enter at the main entrance in the very front of the school rather than at the glass hallways. At this time we do not have staff available to monitor the glass hallway entrances, and safety is our first priority. This will begin for all tomorrow, October 5th.

    We are happy to report that buses and carpool are running more smoothly each day, and we want to say thank you for your patience. Please remember that K-2 car riders will begin to load at 3:50 and 3-5 car riders will begin to load at 4:00. It is very important for the safety of our students that all cars picking up students have an official RDE carpool tag.
