Dear RMAE families,
The outpouring of thoughtfulness from our families on Friday for Principal Day is beyond words. Gratitude doesn’t begin to describe how we feel. Your kind words and actions gave us a continuous smile and feeling of a long appreciative hug. We are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful school community. We thank you for making RMAE the special place it is.
Your Proud Principals,

6th grade has been working on a multi step community service project. They created clay planters by hand that were painted and fired, then planted small gardens in the planters in Mr Dunbar's gardening elective. Once the flowers were blooming they presented them to Elk Run. We hope to brighten the residents day by giving them these beautiful, handmade planters!
