A Message from the Principal

Hello RMAE Families,

One of the many aspects of RMAE that make us stand out from the rest is our amazing school community.  That was certainly exemplified at the Trunk or Treat event tonight!  We had well over 250 people on campus!  Everyone enjoyed the comradery and lively atmosphere which included a full lot of creatively decorated cars and getting spooked in the Haunted Hall.  The middle schoolers did a fantastic job kicking off the event with their zomie dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.  Throughout the event the middle school Grillin’ elective provided hot off the grill hotdogs for dinner.  I can’t say it enough – RMAE is a special place with absolutely marvelous people! 

Your Proud Prinicpal

Dr. Ann Hudson
