Kona Ice at dismissal tomorrow!!

Just a head's up to remember to bring some cash with you to dismissal tomorrow (Friday) because the PTA is hosting the Kona Ice truck!  Ices are $2-$5 and the truck will arrive in front of the main entrance around 3.  Fingers crossed for good weather!!
Next Friday (6/10) there will be a one-day effort to reunite owners with their items in the lost and found.  Tracy Dieter will have tables set up outside practically bucking under the weight of your kids' clothes, lunchboxes, accessories and accoutrements!  Come and get them! :) 
Next year's supplies?
PTA's communication survey?
You're the best! :)

Volunteer Opportunities for the 2016-2017 School Year

I know you are packing your pool bags and gearing up for summer, however we need your help. We have a number of volunteer positions that need to be filled for next school year.

Ice Cream Social Chair and Co-Chair. Time frame-September 2016.

This time honored tradition is turn-key. You will just need to oversee your team of volunteers. We will provide you all of the details for the event.

Back to School Activities. Time frame- August/ Early September.

If you can offer any time to help prepare for the next school year, we would love it.

Please let us know if you are interested in offering a helping hand. We are excited for the next school year!

Now, get back to planning your fun for this summer!

Thank you!

Co-Presidents of the RFES PTA 2016-2017

School store in final days!

This is the final week of the school store and prices have been SLASHED to move the old inventory out!  It could be your child's last chance to grab that adorable, banana-scented kawaii eraser he/she's been eyeing all year...
If you have a soon-to-be-fourth-grader and you and your child might be interested in running the school store next year, please contact the PTA at to inquire about what is involved.  The current volunteers would love to pass on their accumulated knowledge and experience - the sooner the better!  BIG THANKS to Debi, Cassie and Haley for their time and effort this year!  It was a great success! 
Looking forward to sports days this week?  Us too!!  With the busy ramp-up to the end of the year, save yourself some time and order next year's school supplies now at . And while you are online, please take a few minutes to complete the PTA's communication survey HERE.  Many thanks to those who have done so already - we really appreciate your input! :)

Order your school supplies for next year now!

Supply Kit Ordering for Fall Begins Now!

Hello Fellow Parents,

I am pleased to announce the PTA's continued partnership with 1st Day School Supplies! We have collaborated with 1st Day School Supplies to help parents and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the hassle and aggravation of shopping at Wal-Mart, Target or Staples. I have personally have found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free! Plus, the prices are competitive! So, this summer as the temperature climbs and lines at the checkout counter are a mile long … I will be at the pool, because our back to school supply shopping was done in June! You can make your purchase right now by clicking this link:

The ordering deadline is June 30th, so ordering now is better than waiting.  The PTA does not make money on this. It is just a handy service provided to our school community.  Supply kits will be shipped to school and you can collect them at the "Sneak a Peek at Your Seat" event in August - no hassle, no shopping, no pages of lists!!
