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. If you need extras for additional family members' cars, please just send a Dojo message to your teacher and we can get those sent home for you. Our visitor and volunteer check-in kiosk is up and running. We ask that any parent that comes to school to visit a classroom or volunteer uses your driver's license to check in at this kiosk right outside the front office. If you are only going into the office, you do not need to this. This week come out to RDE Spirit Night at McDonald's (Flowers/Harris Teeter location) on Tuesday, September 14th from 5:00-8:00. A portion of the proceeds will come back to River Dell to support our classrooms. We’re only 2 weeks away from kicking off our River Dell Fun Run on September 23rd, with the Big Event being on Friday, October 1st. Our goal is to get every family to register for our fundraiser! IT’S FREE AND EASY! Together we can work together to reach our goal of raising $30,000 for School improvements, including a new digital communication sign & playground equipment. We’re excited to see our school come together in this safe fundraising program that will give us an extra boost of energy and much needed funds, too! We hope everyone has a great week, and remember, once a Racer, always a Racer.
