Book Drive supporting Community Service Day
Mrs. Grose’s Kindergarten class is collaborating with 1st Grade to sponsor a school wide book drive supporting Community Service Day. Collection boxes will be located outside the main office and Mrs. Grose’s classroom. Books will be collected through CSD on May 9th. Books will be donated to the Eugene Field Elementary School. They have no library and 85% of the children are on subsidized meals plans. This is a great way to clear out those gently used books and make a huge difference in another child’s life. Thanks for your support.
RMAE Art Show winners
I entered 5 pieces of student art in the Jeffco Middle School Art Show which is on display at the Lakewood Cultural Center in the Belmar area. Megan Shaver won first place in the painting category and John Petri won third place in the mixed media category! Hannah Hamid, Mayzie Branson and Evan Robertson also have work hanging in the show. This show includes art submitted by all the middle school art teachers in Jeffco!
In addition, I entered one of my pieces of art, a collage, in the Jefferson County Teachers Exhibit at the same place but in the building directly across the walkway. It was a juried show, and as I haven’t heard that I should pick it up, I think it is hanging in the show.
It is a huge accomplishment just to have a piece of art chosen for this show as each teacher has a limited number of entries. Please join me in congratulating all five of these students.

LOST and FOUND
The massive box of lost and found boots will be donated at the end of April to the 4th grade Soles for Souls project. Please stop by to claim your child’s before then. Many of them are from the 4th and 5th grade hall.
Lost and Found is beginning to overflow again and items that have been there for a while will be removed next week. They will be donated to the Fundraising Clothing Drive the week of April 21-25th.
