A Message from the Principal


Dear RMAE Families,

One of the aspects key to the vision of RMAE’s founders was family involvement.  To this day, we believe this is an important piece of what makes our school community so unique and wonderful.  I am proud to announce that we have 121 families who have logged a total of 3,805 volunteer hours thus far this year!  I know some of you are immediately thinking, “that number is actually larger because I haven’t logged my hours.”  That’s ok.  You can log past hours at any time on A to Z.  If you haven’t done so, please take a few moments to log your hours.  We use this information in various ways, one of which is for potential grants.  It is a statistic that demonstrates how committed our community is to our school as well as illustrates the value we put on family involvement. 

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who dedicates time to support our school community with a special shout out to the 16 families who have already exceeded their recommended 60 hours!  And a plea to all - please continue or start logging your hours. 

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Ann Hudson

RMAE Happenings


Please HELP!  Complete your Intent to Return in EnrollJeffco -  Thank you to those who have already submitted their 'Intent to Return' through EnrollJeffco.  All current RMAE families will need to indicate whether they are returning to RMAE, or choosing a different school within the District, through EnrollJeffco by Friday, February 8th.   It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1.  Login to EnrollJeffco’s new system using your Jeffco Connect credentials.   For login issues, contact the office.

2.  Update Jeffco Connect - Follow the Instructions to update your Jeffco Connect contact information for current students.  A new student in a current family will simply be added to the family account.  

3.  Intent to Enroll - Make your selection for each student

Yes, my student will attend this school - Complete the short survey and confirm your choice.   We are honored that you have selected to return to RMAE.  You are finished.

No, I wish to apply to other schools or programs - You will have the option to select schools other than RMAE.  You may select as many schools as you wish.  If you receive several offers, only one may be selected.  Once an offer for a school other than RMAE has been accepted, you will automatically be taken off RMAE's enrollment rosters for the fall 2019 school year.   If at a later date, you decide that you wish to return to RMAE, you will need to submit another Choice Application through EnrollJeffco's Round 2.  If there are openings in the desired grade levels, offers will be made on a first come, first served basis.
