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! Also, we have a really special holiday fundraiser going on right now. You can purchase take home holiday ornament kits from Hammer and Stain from now until this Friday, December 3rd. These are a fun and creative way to support the students and staff at RDE. Check out the link on the River Dell PTA Facebook page. Teachers will also be sending this link on Class Dojo this week. Anyone who ordered poinsettias can pick them up at River Dell on Saturday, December 4th. We are especially excited about our Candyland Gift Shop which starts on Monday, December 6th and runs through Friday, December 10th. Students can shop for gifts that they pick out themselves for the special people in their lives. It will be open every day from 9:45-3:15, and we are in need of parent volunteers! There is a link on our River Dell PTA Facebook page, and this link will also be sent home on Class Dojo as well! This fun event will end with a Family Holiday Festival Day on the morning of Saturday, December 4th...more information to come on this fun event! We hope everyone has a great week. Remember, once a Racer always a Racer.
