Online Ordering
Under the “Parents” section, click on “Get Started”
Enter our class code: LV22J

I will submit all orders on the due date each month and books will be sent home with your child when they arrive at school. (If you want books to be a surprise or gift, I will be happy to make arrangements with you to pick them up.)

Order forms will go home each month. This month’s due date is August 29th.

Volunteer Training
Georgia law regarding volunteers in non-profit organizations establishes that all volunteers are now mandated reporters.  In order for all volunteers to understand the law and know the reporting protocols, volunteer training regarding the new mandated reporter law will be provided. Below are the dates for the RBES volunteer training. If you plan to volunteer or visit in a classroom (this includes attending class parties, Field Day, working with students, etc.), you should attend one of the dates below.

August 15th @ 7:00 PM
August 17th @ 7:00 PM
August 24th @ 8:45 AM

We will need ALL volunteers to attend one of the training options in order for everyone to be able to continue to serve as a volunteer. Please know we appreciate you, your time, and commitment to RBES.
