Teacher Spotlight - Megan Arnold
Hi, I'm Megan Arnold. I am a Colorado native from Lakewood. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was 6 years old and am so happy to be at RMAE. Outside of school you can find me trying new restaurants and fun spots around the Denver area with my friends or going shopping at Target. I love to cook new recipes at home too. This summer I traveled to Hawaii for the first time and New Jersey/New York to visit my best friend.! My favorite things include the TV show "Friends," Popcorn, Reese Peanut Butter cups, animal print and COFFEE!!!!! I have really enjoyed reading recently as well and love to shop for books at Barnes and Noble or listen on audible. As a music teacher I often get asked what music I listen to the most...I love country music and going to concerts at the Grizzly Rose.

Family Summary of the September Board Meeting
Last Thursday's board meeting was filled with educational excellence updates. We reviewed the end-of-year test scores and were impressed with how the RMAE students surpassed both state and district scores. While we are pleased with the educational growth, there is always an opportunity to improve, and the SAC committee will be taking on the task of developing a plan forward.
From a cultural aspect, it was great to hear about the successes of the long-standing RMAE 100 Elk Middle School student outing, as well as, the new well-organized fun-filled Ninja Course Welcome Back event. 
The board welcomed a new Community Representative, Dan O’Neill.  Dan is a former RMAE parent and past President of the RMAE board.  Now that his kids are older, he’s graciously volunteered his service as a community member, and the board looks forward to his valuable input and perspective. 
The board also welcomed a new parent member to fill the vacant board seat, Gerry Kostuk. He brings many great qualities to the board including fundraising experience. Gerry will be heading up our Annual Giving fundraising campaign that happens in October. Stay tuned for more communication on this year's Annual Giving goal that helps RMAE raise money to offset the reduced public funding gap we receive as a charter school. 
Please note the next regular board meeting will be on Tuesday, October 11th.
