School Supply Kits for Sale until April 3rd! Going Fast!

It’s Time to Order School Supply Kits!

The Deadline for ordering the Supply Kits is April 3rd!

When the window closes the opportunity is over for the year.

  • Go to Account Number 24303
  • You will save money. Your kit includes the school supply cabinet money for the entire year, so you will not have to purchase items like paper towels, Kleenex, Bleach wipes, Antiseptic gel and Ziploc bags (which will be on the supply lists for those not participating in the kit program).
  • You will save time and arguments with your kids! No long lines, no extras or gimmies, no wrong supplies, and no searching for those few missing items.
  • You are supporting RMAE financially, as this is a fundraiser for the school.
  • Your supply kit is delivered to your child’s classroom ready to go for the first day of school.

IMPORTANT:  The very last day to order is Wednesday, April 3rd. Please note: Part of our order time period is during Spring Break. Last year a few families missed the cutoff date last year and called in a panic, but there is nothing we can do to remedy the problem if you miss the window. Please plan ahead this year and order in the beginning of the order cycle to avoid these potential problems, especially if you have travel plans for spring break.

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.

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.

Young Writer’s Conference and Birds

Hi everyone,

I apologize for the many communications I have sent to you this week.  It seems things are getting busier and busier and I want to keep you abreast of all the happenings.  I also very much appreciate your donations after my requests; it is wonderfully generous of you.

1)  If you haven’t already registered your child for the Young Writer’s Conference, you need to do so ASAP as registration ends on Monday, 4/14 with no exceptions.  Several of the kids said they wanted to go but aren’t registered.

Here’s the link for more information and to register:

2)  Our class will be assisting Ms. Rachel Smith with an African outreach program she is working with this summer.  We will be painting and decorating bird houses for an auction or parental purchase.  Pairs of students will have one bird house to decorate during class time.  In an effort to make these houses as beautiful as possible, I am in need of some supplies.   If you have paint, stickers, dried or silk flowers, magazines, ribbon, glitter, glue or any other items that may work for this project, please sent it in with your child starting Monday.  Thank you so much!

I THINK that is it for now, but I must say, something new presents itself almost daily…..thank you for the support.

Take care,

Sandy Hoban

Smit Kindergarten Week of April 7-11, 2014

Well it certainly feels more like spring this week! Spring Fever has officially set in- me included! :)

This week was filled with 8th grade buddies, guest speakers, projects, 2-D/3-D shapes, and tons of LEARNING! Our classroom kind of looks like a Chinese restaurant! Check out more below!

Thank you to Mrs. Schultz for sharing her life experiences while living in Japan! She shared interesting facts and answered our questions. We were especially excited and grateful for the Japanese treats. We also practiced using chopsticks, writing Japanese numbers, and made Chinese paper lanterns. What a cultural experience!

Another big thank you goes out to Mrs. Truchel for doing the “leg work” for our community service project! Miss Jenn from Foothills Animal Shelter visited with us this morning about what the shelter does and how it helps homeless animals. We also learned what we (as the public) can do to help. In Friday folders today is a wish list from Foothills Animal Shelter. As part of our project, we will be collecting those items to donate to the shelter and deliver on CSD- May 9. Please bring items to the classroom no later than May 8th, so that we can get everything sorted and delivered! Your children have hearts of gold and truly love to help others. This opportunity couples with their passion for animals and is such a fun way to help out. Please take a look at the wish list. We will also be collecting pennies/spare change to donate to our local Evergreen Animal Protection League. Thank you for your support of us and our mission to help make positive change!

NO SCHOOL: Teacher In-service Friday, April 18th!

PARTIAL CONTACT DAYS: Thursday, May 1- we COME TO SCHOOL. Friday, May 2- NO SCHOOL for us, we will be testing Mrs. Grose’s class!

We seems to be staying healthy! YEAH! Keep up the “cleaning” and healthy practices at home. We continue to disinfect daily and practice good hand washing! :)

As we enter this busy time of year, I will be communicating probably more than you would like about upcoming events in kindergarten. Towards the end, we have lots of events already on the calendar and add weekly! If you ever have any questions about upcoming kindergarten happenings, please do not hesitate!

As always, ENJOY THE WEEKEND! (especially before the snow comes!)

Take Care,

Ms. Smit

We continued Chapter 10- Geometric Shapes.



We continued our study of Asia.  We talked about Chinese traditions and celebrations. We watched “The Nightinggale” then painted a nightingale.  We had a guest speaker come in and talk about what it was like to live in Japan and finally we wrapped up our unit with travel time.


Humpty Dumpty and the Lion and the Mouse


We have been talking about our feelings and emotions and how we can look at someones face and guess how they are feeling.  We have talked about how our feeling affect how we act.  We made a “Feelings and Emotions” collage.

Communication Center:

Lunar Eclipse and More

What a great week. We had Mr Cohen come in a teach us about the moon and its’ phases. The students really enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Today we learned about solar and lunar eclipses. There is a lunar eclipse on April 15th. To view it students would have to get up at midnight. You might be able to see some of it around 9:00 if the sky is clear.

The moon calender is due April 31st.

Life Cycle and Reproduction Permission Slip

Dear Parents,

As a reminder we are beginning our Life Cycles and Reproduction unit on Tuesday, April 15th.  We require permission slip in order for your child to participate in this unit.  The permission slip went home two weeks ago in the Friday Folder on a blue piece of paper. For those who we do not have there will be another form in the Friday Folder this week.  We realize there was not an option on the form to decline your child’s participation. Therefore, we ask that you please reply to your homeroom teacher, by email, if you have not signed and returned the permission slip.  This will clarify your intentions concerning your child’s participation in this unit.

If you were unable to attend the informative meeting you may access this information by going to our school web page under the Links tab.  We will have an updated outline and video compilation on this tab by the end of today.
