Dear Parents, November 1, 2014
I can't believe that we are already into the month of November. October was a busy month. We had bus safety and fire safety. We attempted to have a Walking School Bus, but the weather did not cooperate. We will try again in the spring. The Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success for our PTO as well as our BRAX cup fundraiser. Please look for order forms for Holiday Wreaths to come out the beginning of November. This will be our last and final fundraiser for the year. The order for wreaths will be accepted from November 3, until the 21st. The wreaths will be may be picked up on December 5 during school hours and Sat. December 6th from 8 to 10 am.
New Grading System
There will be a new grading/student reporting system this year at RES and across RSU 14. After trying for several years to work with the Infinite Campus grading system, the district has decided to move to the “Jump Rope” software. The four point standards based grading system will remain the same. RES will be offering more information during a parent forum will be held the end of November and office hours from 4 to 6pm by appointment on Dec.10th. Report cards will go out the week of December 8th.
We welcome Leslie Brooks to RES as a Title I Interventionist replacing Brian Rounds. We also are glad to have Jennifer Wescott, Miss Jen, as our playground monitor and Grammy Jo, as one of our Foster Grandparent Volunteers. Welcome Mrs. Brooks, Grammy Jo and Miss Jen!
Please find attached a list of important dates for RES.
