What an amazing time was had on Friday celebrating Halloween! Check it out.
Teachers and Staff were all surprised with our pop in Giving Apple presentations. In lieu of our traditional school wide assembly, all the wonderful donations from the giving apple were delivered room by room to all of the unsuspecting staff.  See the photographic slide show here!
Fire Safety Visit for Kindergarten thru Second Grade last week. 
4th grade celebrated finishing their first Core Knowledge Novel with Pollyanna Day. Students dressed up as characters, played the Glad Game, and compared and contrasted the novel with the movie.

Dear RMAE Families

Thank you to all of the families who have participated in Annual Giving to date.  We have reached 40% participation and continue to receive more each day.  This has resulted in pledges totaling over $75,000.  Reaching this monetary milestone will greatly impact our school year.  In addition to the usual items funded by Annual Giving, we have the opportunity to invest in more curriculum.  Specifically, we have ordered the new Core Knowledge Science sequence for grades K-2.  This completes our science curriculum upgrades for all of Elementary.

It’s not too late to donate.  With additional family participation we will be able to invest even more into our classrooms.  THANK YOU to all of you who have made donations and those who plan on it.  Together, we’re enriching the educational experience at RMAE.

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Ann Hudson


Important Updates and Information

Inside Screening- Moving forward, we will now conduct inside screening for morning drop off, as the infrared thermometers do not like the colder temperatures outside. Please remember to pull all the way forward in the circle to drop off your students in order to keep the line moving as efficiently as possible.

Grades and report cards- Grades are now posted on Infinite Campus for 3rd - 8th. Report cards for Kindergarten- 2nd grade were sent home last Friday with students.

As a reminder, the safety & well-being of all community members  will always be RMAE’s first priority.   We will follow all directives given by Jefferson County Health Department as it pertains to in person and remote learning.
