As a part of our grade level service learning project, we are collecting soda tabs for the Ronald McDonald House all year starting in October. Send tabs in at any time in a plastic bag, and we will do the rest!
Our class will take the winter MAP Reading test on November 14th at 8am and the winter MAP Math test on November 16th at 8am.

It's Secret Santa Time!  
If you would like to help with this year's Secret Santa, please use this Secret Santa Survey Link to complete a short survey.  Mrs. Porter will contact you about how you would like to help.
You can help by:
  • Purchasing a specific gift or gifts from a child's wish list
  • Making a financial contribution to Secret Santa.
  • Volunteering your time to organize the Secret Santa boxes and items.
  • Volunteering your time to shop with donated money.
The Growing Mound of Lost and Found
As we've had cooler and wetter weather, we've started seeing the Lost and Found Mound growing again.  Please ask your child to look through Lost and Found for any lost items.  If you are planning to join us for Thanksgiving Lunch, please take the time to look through Lost and Found while you are here. It will be organized to help you look so you don't have to search The Mound!
Also, please help by putting your child's name in all jackets, sweatshirts, or sweaters that he/she wears to school. (lunchboxes and water bottles, too)  We really do look for names and will return them to your child IF the item has a name in it.  Any items still in Lost and Found on Thursday, November 26 will be washed and donated.  Items in good condition are sold at a consignment store and the proceeds go to RBES Secret Santa or counseling needs that arise throughout the school year.
