Let's Generate Some Buzz Book Buzz!

Hi Folks!

   A blizzard of papers is coming your way, and one of them is a form that will come home for you to submit if you want to be included in the Buzz Book.  This is a publication of the PTA, and includes contact information for every family who wishes to be included. Parents new to RFES may not know why this is important so here are some reasons it is:

  • The class lists are so helpful for you when planning parties and events. 

  • The contact info is a MUST for early-on playdates when kindergarteners don't know names yet.

  • The addresses are a great resource when writing thank you notes/sending pen pal letters.

  • The phone numbers are life-saving when you are running late to pick-up.

  • The sibling/parent cross referencing is awesome for resolving that situation where I've been chatting with the same awesome parent at pick up twice a day for two months ... and can NOT remember her name. ;)
Surely I am not the only one?

SO, be on the lookout for those forms and when they come home, fill them out and send them back in!  The due date is 9/12 with an anticipated distribution date of 10/20. 

Upcoming dates at RFES:

8/26 - Sneak-a-Peek from 2:30 to 3:30, 1st Day School Supply order pick-up
8/29 - Boo-Hoo Breakfast - outside Kindergarten doors, 8:45 am (even if you are doing a happy dance of joy to have school back in session, swing by and say "Hi" to your new PTA presidents anyhow!)
9/2 - Back to School night, 6:30
9/9 - 1:1 Parent info night (regarding the Lighthouse Technology Initiative) 7 pm
9/19 - Ice cream social 5 pm
