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!!

Reminder about movie night!

It's looking like the Peanuts Movie night is a GO for tomorrow! The movie and raffle BEGIN at 7, so get there early enough for your students to get to put their FREE raffle tickets into some of the teacher baskets before the drawings begin!

LAST DAY of yearbook sales for 2015-16

Hello parents!
The 2015-2016 RFES yearbook is currently in production and is filled with special memories that your child will treasure.
This is just a reminder that the sales phase is coming to a close and all orders are due next Friday, April 15th. You should have received a copy of the order form in your child's red folder before spring break. We will send reminder copies home in folders next week.
Yearbooks cost $25 and advertising space is available for messages to your child. Please make checks payable to RFES PTA and return to school in your child's folder.
Please note, this is the ONLY yearbook sale of this school year. In the past, the PTA sold yearbooks as a line item on the Back-to-School PTA Direct Donation/Buzz Book form. We did not do that this year, so don't worry that you've already bought this year's edition.
Thanks very much!
The RFES Yearbook Team
