Outdoor Classroom Update!

As you may know, the PTA has been supporting the efforts at RFES to construct an outdoor learning space.  At last the time is here!  We are fortunate enough to have been adopted by an aspiring Eagle Scout, Luke Rowland, our own Ms. Rowland's son, who is undertaking this as his community service project! He is with Troop #35, and could use your help with the construction.  He hopes to have it be a one-day effort taking place on 4/8.  If you would like to help, contact him on his cell at 443-442-4773.  Useful tools include shovels, rakes or wheelbarrows!  This is going to be a lovely alternative to classroom instruction and will boost RFES's score as they aim for the MD Green School Certification.  Here's hoping for great weather on Saturday, Luke!

Birthday Party Offer From Kona Ice!

Kona Ice wants to come to YOUR house!  If you are wondering how to add an extra bit of fun to your next gathering, Kona Ice will deliver tropical island fun starting at $135!  20% of your total will go back to RFES if you use this flyer when you book your event.  Call them directly for more info at 443-652-2600.  What a fun way to support the RFES PTA!
