Lost and Found? Tomorrow!

I am sorry for the late notice on this - my weekend got away from me there!  Twice on Monday (that's 12/15, tomorrow) Tracey Dieter is opening up the RFES lost and found and is hoping to return these lonely items to your homes.  If you would please ask your student to swing by in either the morning or afternoon (arrival and dismissal times) to see if he or she recognizes any items, it would help to put a dent in the collection!  Tracey will be manning a table by the cafeteria entrance in the morning and afternoon.  Have a great week!

Second week of Greens and Spirit Wear sales!

Just a quick note tonight to say that if you haven't returned your order forms for holiday greens or spirit wear, there are less than ten days left to get them in.  So don't delay!  Fill out those forms, write those checks, put them in the red folders and cross them off your to-do list!  Your friendly PTA volunteers will do all the rest for you. ;)

Holiday Greens Sale & Spirit Wear Sale!

Hey everyone!  By now you should have received an order form for RFES spirit wear.  The sale goes until 11/20, so don't wait too long to send the forms back in.  Also, the PTA is beginning the annual greens sale.  Order forms for that will go out in the red folders later this week.  You can also print out and return THIS form, if that's easier. :)

Have a great week!

Spirit wear drive active from today until 11/20!

Good morning!  Our new vendor sent signs, order forms and samples this week!  The clothing samples are on display in the front hallway across from the office, the order forms should come home by Monday at the latest, and if you have questions feel free to ask on the PTA's FB page or email me at  We're offering two colors and styles of sweatshirt along with short- and long- sleeved tees, and sweatpants.  They look great and the kids who saw us hanging signs and setting up were really excited!    Here's the company we are using if you want to see their products and can't get into the school.  And I have a PDF order form so you can just print and deliver to school with your check.  Spirit days at RFES are every Friday!

Also remember that tomorrow is the HALLOWEEN PARADE!  The kids assemble on the rear hard courts right around 9 or so, then parade up to Stevenson and around Old Trail, Heathfield and then down Dumbarton.  It's very cute.  Dismissal tomorrow is at 12:30.

See you around! :)

I Need Your Input!

I am conducting some very scientific polling over on the PTA's FB page.  If you haven't liked it already, here's where to find it:  I would love to know what you think about today's topic! :)

The PTA Presents...

I received this message from Mrs. Rowland and several of my kids' teachers:

This morning our students enjoyed an assembly by Skher Brown and his dance troupe, The Dancing Warriors.  They taught the students about the  Capoeira Angola dance form.  This type of native dance originated in Salvador, Brazil.   Our boys and girls enjoyed learning the meaning behind the acrobatic choreography and accompanying musical instruments.  Some of our students were fortunate enough to learn parts of the dance and actually “give it a try” on stage!   A special “thank you” to our PTA for providing the funding for today’s assembly!!

I know my children enjoyed it and I hope yours did too!  This is but one of many events the PTA pays for with the dollars donated through the direct donation campaign.  Join the PTA today
