Dear Dedicated RES Staff,

Only 15 days until a well-deserved break!  The school year is now half over! 

KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • Kathi and Pam for sending in your blurb for the Valentine's Day Basket raffle!
  • Leticia for covering remaining Gr. 5/6 students so Cathy can help at Ski Runners.
  • Will for helping load equipment and kids on Friday!
  • Rose and Libby for updating their website!
Important Items to Know:   

Report Cards - I will be reviewing all report cards before they are sent home.  Please let me know when I can review them online or give me hard copies if you'd prefer.  Report cards go home at the end of the day Wed., Jan. 31.  Please make sure your comments and grades are in agreement.  

Communication - Just a reminder that if you'd like to send something to staff or parents, just send me an e-mail with the word "BLOG" in the subject line.  We all get way too many e-mails, so the blog is a centralized place for communication to all.  Thanks for respecting  this request.  

Change- I've been placing handouts in your mailboxes that are coming from the new SU and the State.  We are now part of a merged supervisory district and the "silo" individuality and autonomy of our school are a thing of the past. We will discuss this more at the Staff Meeting Mon., Feb. 5.  If you want to meet with me, please see Sherry to schedule a time.  Meeting with you is a priority unless an unavoidable situation prevents it.

Retirement - Just a reminder that the retirement letter was sent out from the SU and it has a time limit.  If you have questions about whether or not you qualify, please chat with Linda Loprete.  

Mama Mia Raffle - Please send me something to put in the blog about your basket.  Thanks for encouraging your students to bring in the needed items for your class basket.

School Choice - The new unified board voted to allow school choice.  That means that any of our students can go to any other school in the district - perhaps one that offers after school programming, i.e. Woodstock Elementary.  If we want to be competitive with the other schools, we need to consider getting a program going.  If you're interested in being part of this, please let me know.  It also means that parents can choose to send parents here, thus the need for an updated website!  Our website is more current than other schools in the SU, but individual classroom/subject area sites could still use some updating.  Thanks for your help!  If you need help with your website update, I'm happy to help.
