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.

Dear Parents,
I hope your summer is off to a great start.

In order to help your upcoming 6th grader’s math skills stay sharp over the summer, I have uploaded a math packet for them to complete on my website. The kids will be given homework passes and/or extra credit for their work. Please visit my website via Once there, go to the documents page. There is a folder for the summer homework as well as one for recommended websites.

Please feel free to have your child email me with any questions they may have. I am looking forward to seeing them this fall.

Thank you,
Laura Benninger
6th grade Math/Science Teacher

Thank you 7th & 8th Graders & Parents!

Dear Parents and Students:

Thank you for such a truly amazing school year this year!  From our European cultures celebrations in 7th grade and the poetry slam, all the way to Shakespeare Day and Moab in 8th grade, it’s been a fabulous year!  Thank you parents for your support and positivity and thank you students for your dedication, kindness, and fun energy–you make my job exciting and new each and every day!  And thanks for whipping me into shape this year– Zumba, running, nature appreciation and more have helped me get fit for Kilimanjaro.  When I summit (cross your fingers for me!), I will say a word of thanks for all of you at nearly 20,000 feet.  You truly make me grateful to work in such a beautiful community.  I look forward to hearing wonderful updates from this graduating 8th grade class, and to making new memories with next year’s 8th grade.  Don’t forget to do you summer reading, people, and have an AMAZING summer vacation! :)  -Ms. Rachel Smith

Wednesday: Clean-out desks and clean the classroom, end of year assembly, and it’s summer!

Thank-you all so much for a fabulous year, and all you have done for your student and our classroom! These students are the best!

Dear Parents:

The fifth graders had a wonderful visit to the RMAE Middle School this week.  Mr. Reynolds and Mrs. Benninger discussed their expectations and gave a lovely overview of the year to come.  Both teachers have summer reading and math assignments.  These will be posted on their websites by the end of the year.  We will also be forwarding you a reminder next week.

There will be a meeting for the beginning of the year 100 Elk trip, so look for more information in the Grizzly Growl.


  • Have your kiddo bring a large bag to school tomorrow as it is clean out everything day.  
  • Permission slips for the Tuesday hike need to be in tomorrow.  There is a $10 pizza and ice cream fee as well.  Cash appreciated.
  • Have your child prepared for the hike with appropriate hiking clothes and shoes, water bottle, sunscreen, and a hearty/healthy snack for prior to the hike.
  • Last day of school is Wednesday, May 28th.  It is an early release on  at 12:00.  No lunch provided.
  • Look for your child’s NWEA academic progress report in their final Friday folder.  This report demonstrates their growth in math, reading, and language usage over the past year.
  • Yearbooks should be arriving any day.  Unfortunately, there was  a delay due to shipping issues.  Will distribute upon receiving.  On Tuesday, there will be an opportunity for them to sign each other’s book.
  • It’s always good to have an extra body during a field trip.  If you would like to come along for a nice hike, pizza, and yogurt, please join us on Tuesday.  Please let your homeroom teacher know so we can account for your help.

It has been a fantastic year and we appreciate all that you have done to support us as teachers.  We wish you and your child the best of luck in middle school and hope to see you around.

Be sure to keep your kid reading and practicing math!!!!  They can lose so much over the summer months.

Take great care and enjoy your summer!

Growl May 19th

Today in the Growl

  • Newly Remodeled Middle School Commons
  • Thank you for the 8th Grade food donations for Moab!
  • RMAE Field Ribbon Cutting
  • 100 Elk Camp Parent Meeting
  • Marie Hadsell Principal for a day!
  • Odyssey of the Mind

The Middle School Commons looks beautiful after being stripped, cleaned, organized, painted, re-floored, and refurnished! Wow! Huge THANKS go out to Julie Ann Courim for organizing the transformation! Along with her dedicated sidekick, Cathleen Erickson, they did amazing work along with many other volunteers such as Kasity Briley, Christine Emery, Ingrid Palmer, Chuck Brown, Kelly Vigil, Crissy Ohmart, Deb Kelly, Jan Gallegos and Tonje Williams. If anyone was left out it is because the team burned through a few too many brain cells due to paint fumes! But we thank you all too!

8th Grade Moab Food Donations and more. Thank Yous are in order for the parents that dropped off lots of goodies to supplement the trip food! Especially a Big Thank You to Annie Hunter and Binoy Prahlad for generously supplying a vast amount of food from Jason’s Deli!

RMAE Field Ribbon Cutting was fun but a bit drizzly! Thanks to all the guests that joined us for this important event! And Thank You again to the many sponsors, volunteers, and donors!

100 Elk Camp Parent Meeting

2014-15 Middle School Parents,

All middle school students attend the 100 Elk retreat the Wednesday through Friday of the first week of school next year, August 27, 28 and 29. Jeffco Schools requires that a parent meeting is held at least one month prior to any overnight trips. For 100 Elk, we tend to do this in the spring as opposed to sometime over the summer!

This meeting will take place Friday, May 23rd, at 3:45 p.m. in the middle school commons. Logistics and themes will be addressed at this time. 

Wine Corks

PS If you have wine corks you would like to donate for corkboards pleased drop them off at the office!

Are you interested in being an Odyssey of the Mind Coach for next fall?

  • You will have the opportunity to work with a team of 7 kids to facilitate creative problem solving, team building and brainstorming.
  • You do not need to be an expert in a particular area, you just need to have a passion to see kids grow and learn.
  • Colorado Odyssey provides trainings, mentorship and a good ear for listening throughout the season (September – March, April or May – depending on how far the team advances)

For more info on becoming a coach contact Christine Emery at

Smit Kindergarten Week of May 12-16, 2014

Howdy Dudy! It’s the last Monday of Kindergarten… :( But we are not letting that slow us down! We have our last full week busier than ever, or so it seems. (To me, at least ;) )

Please read carefully to get all the info for the last days!

Today is our marble party! YEAH! The class democratically decided on Game Day. Students may bring games from home to share in the fun today. Games with lots of small pieces and complicated setup should be left at home. Everything will be able to go home today.

Please join us on Thursday, May 22nd at 745am for a volunteer appreciation breakfast! We want to say thank you for your generous donation of time and effort to our class! Drop your kiddos off and head in to enjoy a lite breakfast and fellowship in Mrs. Grose’s classroom. Hope to see you there!

Kindergarten Graduation is scheduled for Tuesday, May 27th at 10am in the cafetorium. Following the ceremony, all kindergarten families and friends are invited to BYO Picnic Lunch and eat together outside.

We are in need of supplies, misc. items for our last day of school carnival. Please copy and paste the link below into your browser to see what we still need. We are combining with Mrs. Grose’s class for fun-filled last morning of kindergarten and would need enough for both classes. Thank you for your help and support of this fun and exciting last day! :)

Homework is finished, just reading as much as possible! Writing in a journal is also a great way to continue practicing writing skills!

If you have any questions, please ask so I can help guide you in any way!

Have a wonderful week!

Ms. Smit
