January 2013 Newsletter
RES ended the year 2012 on a positive note. On December 21st we held our whole school assembly and for the second year in a row sang a rousing rendition of " The Twelve Days of Christmas" The whole school participated and it was a lot of fun! Students who did not receive any discipline referrals were given a star student bracelet. These bracelets were awarded to 190 of our students! We had a school wide celebration for filling the token jar for the third time this year. Students in grades 3 and 4 participated in craft workshops- proving that food is not required to have fun!! Chorus and winter skiing both started up on January 2nd. In February, we will have our third annual World Community Arts Day. This is a day when students create art all day long. We are still in need of parent volunteers, if you can help, please contact Mrs. Hackett at email@example.com.
Sweetser Family School Based Services
To help meet the needs of all of our students and families, we will be offering behavioral health services through Sweetser School Based Services. There are many different reasons for a child and family to participate in this school- based program. The school based clinicians can offer weekly sessions that are individually designed to meet a child’s needs. More information will follow. If you are interested in this service, please contact Mrs. Hutchinson.
Hands are for helping!
For the next trimester, RES students and staff will be focusing on the 2nd I CARE Rule. Hands are for helping. We are hoping to encourage our students to think before they put their hands on another child. There will be classroom and wall posters and a video of skits created by the CATS to help everyone remember when and how to use our hands for helping. Look for the video on the RSU 14 website.
Pennies for Patients
The I CARE Caring Assistance Team is once again collecting money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Last year we collected $1, 263.25 to help support this worthy cause. We will begin collecting pennies again on February 1st.
Starting in February the newsletter will be available on the school website as an attachment under the parent section of RES. If you do not have Internet access and would like a paper copy, please let the office know.
