Hello RMAE families!
I hope you have enjoyed a summer of making lasting memories with family adventures! With the 2023/24 school year ready to be back in full swing, please look for our weekly newsletter, The Grizzly Growl, every Monday regarding school happenings, updates, and pertinent information.

A great way to kick start the year, reconnect with your RMAE friends and make new friends, is to join us on August 11th to help prepare our campus for the arrival of our amazing students. This is also a great way to kick start your family volunteer hours. Please refer to more detailed information in this newsletter.

We are looking forward to seeing our students and families on Monday, August 14th, for the Welcome Back Social. Please refer to the more detailed information in this newsletter. For parking purposes, please make every effort to arrive during your designated time.

We have dedicated, energetic, and caring group of teachers who can’t wait to meet their students. Our middle school experience has been enhanced with the addition of Brian Joyce in ELA and Maia Smith in Science. Suzanne Fries is in the office and looking forward to meeting all our wonderful families. All of them are wonderful additions to our staff. We are fortunate they chose to be a part of our RMAE family.

We are all very honored you have chosen RMAE to join you in your child’s educational journey. Here’s to another great year at RMAE!
Your Proud Principal,
