    Scholastic Book Order
    Scholastic book orders were sent home in Daily Folders. This is a great opportunity to foster your child’s love for learning! You may send filled out order forms and checks to school with your child, or you may order online using our class code.

    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.), please plan on attending the last volunteer training date this fall. Volunteers must have a new training EACH school year to ensure up-to-date information is received.

    August 24th @ 8:45 AM

    Please know we appreciate you, your time, and commitment to RBES.
