Dear RMAE Parents,
Conferences Cancelled – Due to the weather conditions, parent-teacher conferences had to be cancelled February 26 & 27. We will send out communication next week announcing reschedule dates. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Parent Survey – Your opinion counts! Please take a few minutes to complete the parent survey put out by our SAC (School Accountability Committee). We are hoping for 100% participation! Due to the weather delays, the survey deadline has been extended to next Wednesday, March 4. You can access the survey online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015RMAEParent
Live Action! – Be sure to check out the video on the RMAE website home page (www.rmae.org). Thanks to Jack Maher from the Jeffco Schools Communication department for capturing the middle school girls’ shed-building experience! Thanks to Rachel Smith for giving our girls this opportunity to learn important lifelong carpentry skills.
PARCC Testing—Testing begins Monday, March 2, for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Middle school students will begin testing the following week in math, English, and Language Arts. Your help in ensuring that students are well-rested and ready to do their best on these state tests is appreciated. Student attendance is extremely important, including students being on time, in seats, and ready to learn at 8:00 a.m. PARCC tests are just one part of a body of evidence that we use to determine student academic progress as well as identify areas of strength and those needing improvement.
Parents Night Out –The RMAE Foundation is pleased to announce “Luck of the Wild,” an evening of fun for adult members of the Evergreen Community. The event will be held on Friday, March 13, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at The Wild Game. Tickets are $100 per person and include two drink tickets, food, live music by Tunisia, dancing, unlimited games and bowling, and a $20 game card for a return visit to The Wild Game. Half of the ticket price ($50.00) is donated to RMAE and is tax deductible. Please invite your friends and neighbors to join in the fun. For tickets and sponsorship details please click: www.regquick.com/rmaeluck or contact Marie Lynch at email@example.com. (This event is separate and completely different from PTO’s auction event in April)
Unsupervised students – Beginning March 2, any unsupervised students inside or outside of the school building after 3:30 p.m. will be directed to ACC (Adventures in Child Care), the after school program located in the school cafeteria. Parents will be charged by ACC for this day care ($11.50 for families registered with ACC, $21.00 for families not registered). Unsupervised siblings of students participating in after school activities (musicals, band, clubs, etc.) are included in this procedure. This decision was based on the concern for the safety of all students and the security of our school building.
Top Three Volunteers – Congratulations to Liesl and Ned Parker, Angie O’Keefe, and Jamie and Mary Beth Price, for collecting the highest number of volunteer hours for the past 6 weeks. Remember to log your hours on Our Volts on the RMAE home page at www.rmae.org
A Night of Fun and Entertainment – Your RMAE staff kicked off the night with a unique (to say the least) song and dance to start the fun! Thanks to all of our talented RMAE students who shared their amazing abilities at the annual RMAE Talent Show this past week. Thanks also to PTO along with Gretchen Moritz, Carrie Quinn, Don Williams, and Karen Hines for making this a night to remember!
March Core Virtues: — Perseverance – pushing on despite difficulty and hardship; and Self-discipline – giving the best of ourselves and saying “no” to our weaknesses
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” – Dr. Seuss
