Message from the Principal 


Hello RMAE families!

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in the logistics.  During this time, and all others, we must remind ourselves to give thanks. I want to take this opportunity to attempt to describe how much you mean to our RMAE community.   We are very grateful for the volunteering of your precious time. You have supported classes, helped host our Warren Miller party, donated at your comfort level to our “Help Us Grow” campaign, re-organized our library, helped keep our students safe, supported the 5A and 5B ballot measures, and the list just continues.  Your dedication continues the vision of our founding families who created this amazing school community.  For that, I could never thank you enough.  I wish you all a safe and joyful Thanksgiving!

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Ann Hudson






RMAE Happenings


Please Help Us Spread the WORD!  The best marketing tool for charter schools is word of mouth and this is no different for us.  Many families we have spoken to, learned of us through a current or alumni family.  If everyone would spread the word to just one friend and/or neighbor, we would be able to positively enrich the lives of additional students while still keeping our small and personalized feel.  Please help us spread the word about our upcoming  Open House on November 29th, at 6:00 – 7:30.  

Open House Informational Flier - Please download this flier and pass it along to friends and neighbors!


 - Yearbooks are now available to purchase!  Please follow the link below or find the link on our website homepage to order your yearbooks now.  When you create a login to purchase your yearbook, you will also gain access to the Community Upload.  Use the Community Upload to share your best photos with the year book team and the students.   Teachers and staff can create a login to add their photos too. We’re looking for photos of classroom life, field trips, electives, special events, etc.   Thank you for your support!
