Dear RMAE families,
As we conclude 2021, and break for the winter holiday, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for everyone who helps make RMAE an amazing place to be. As we enjoy the upcoming break, I hope each of you receives and returns the seasonal bounty of blessings and good tidings that make these days truly special.  I hope you enjoy the winter break, relax, have fun, and make many memories.  I look forward to a great second half of the year and seeing everyone on January 6th, 2022.
May your 2022 be one filled with health, happiness, and hope.
Dr. Ann Hudson

Family-School Partnership Survey Now Open

Yearly, Jeffco sends out the FAMILY-SCHOOL Partnership survey which allows families to submit key feedback on their experiences in the Jeffco school system - including charters.  We encourage you to complete the survey as it helps RMAE continually improve and gets the charter school experiences back to the Jeffco Board of Directors and DAC. The information submitted from our families is important, taken seriously and helps to remind the Jeffco BoD that we comprise more than 10% of the students in the district. Please take a few moments to enhance participation in the survey in your community to keep Charter Schools’ voices heard.   
The survey is open until December 21, 2021 and takes about 10 minutes to complete.
