October is a busy month!  Here are some items to keep an eye on!

The PTA is having movie night on spoooooky Friday the 13th, and is keeping an eye on the weather, which looks good right now.  Trolls is the movie and all are welcome.  Remember to bring a picnic and blanket! Concession stand opens at 6, so bring some money for treats if you like.

Generations Day is 10/19, and we need volunteers and donations of treats.  See what the options are here:!/showSignUp/20f0d45a8a922a5fe3-generations1 or here:

The PTA has set up a new way to support our school, at Amazon Smile! Change your chosen charity to the RFES PTA, use the amazonsmile page to shop, and a portion of your purchases are automatically redirected to the PTA!  This connection to Amazon is not affiliated with or supported by RFES or BCPS, but is undertaken solely by the Board of the RFES PTA.

Join us and many fellow parents for coffee and treats on the playground before the morning Halloween parade 10/31.  Bring your camera - it's adorable!

And our next meeting will be 11/1 in the library at 6:30.  All are welcome!

Ice Cream Social needs YOU, and other announcements. :)

Sign up to scoop and serve HERE. We really need the assistance.  Also, while current students are free, all other ice cream lovers will need tickets, and those may NOT be purchased at the door.  Send in your request ASAP if you still need ice cream tickets.  Cake walk tickets are sold out.

Today is the last day for spirit purchases.  Get your tees HERE!

Volunteers requested - PTA needs help with ice cream social!

Hello! We were in need of a number of volunteers for this event. This is an exciting night for the RFES community to come together to celebrate the start of the 2017-2018 school year. It is a night where families bring a picnic dinner and enjoy fun music, ice cream and have an opportunity to meet your student's new classmates and their parents. The teachers provide an exciting Cake Walk and DO NOT need parent volunteers. However, you do need to accompany your child to that portion of the event, which is in the gymnasium. We hope you can join us for this memorable evening.

Sign up HERE.
