RMAE Happenings


Hello RMAE families,

There are three ballot measures in November that pertain to education funding.  One is statewide and the other two are Jefferson County specific.  On Tuesday at 6:30 pm, I will be hosting an informational session on the three measures, how they would be funded, and if they pass what it would mean for RMAE.  The goal is not to be political nor persuade one way or the other, only to give factual information.  If you would like information regarding these funding measures, please plan to attend Tuesday in the cafeteria.  In the meantime, Jeffco has put together this informational webpage that you may want to peruse. 

Your Proud Principal,
Dr. Ann Hudson


Classroom News


2nd Grade - 'Build a Bug' - Students had the opportunity to build a bug from scratch.  Students initially rolled a die to determine the size, shape, the habit and characteristics of their bug. Students then used their background knowledge from their home room teacher, Mrs. Grose, and their imagination to begin creating. Using recycled materials and craft supplies, each student built their own imaginary bug.

2nd Grade - Along with bug building, 2nd grade students launched their butterflies this week.  All this buggy business is part of their insect studies.


Student Council -  Elections were held and the new Executive Board positions chosen.  


Back row:  Presidenet - Leighla Riemma, VP - Mia Triplett, Secretary - Kaylee Kipp, Treasurer - Brody March, Assistant Treasurer - Xavier Gomez (kneeling), Charlotte K - Assistant Communications Director, and Aspyn Wyant - Communications Director.

Teens and Food Allergies - There is a local Teen Food Allergy conference for teens 13 to 19 years old on Saturday, September 22nd.  Food Allergy management can often be tougher in the teen years, due to the peer pressure and the stretching of boundaries.  Kids learn a great deal about managing their allergies and bond with other teens facing similar challenges.  They hear from other teens and adults, how important carrying their Epinephrine is.   There is no cost but space is limited and advanced registration by Sept 20th is required.
