    It's going to be another busy week at Rand Road.


    Reminders for dismissal: If you need to change your child's transportation, please send in a note to the teacher.  Also, keep in mind that we halt all dismissal in the event of unsafe conditions such as lightening, and will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.  Thank you for your patience as we strive to keep your children safe.

    This week we have fall pictures on Tuesday.  Also on Tuesday, look for this year's first edition of the PTA Newsletter to come home in the Tuesday folder.


    Thursday at 6:00 PM we have a PTA board meeting.  We encourage you to attend this open meeting and see how you can get involved.


    Friday is our Rand Road Run, our PTA sponsored fund-raiser and we look forward to seeing you then.

    Yours,

    Rhonda Jones, Principal

    REMINDERS FOR THIS WEEK

    • 3rd grade Students will take the BOGs.  | At the beginning of 3rd grade, students take a test similar to the EOGs.  It serves as a benchmark that will allow us to be able to determine how much growth students make over the course of this year.  Tests will be computer-based this year and will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday.
    • School Improvement Plan Committee Meeting. | We are in the 2nd year of our current plan and we will be discussing our progress toward our goals and action steps that we will take this school year to ensure that our students are successful.  This week we will meet on Wednesday from 8:00 - 8:45 and you are invited to join us.  All of our SIP meetings are open to everyone.
    • PTA OPEN HOUSE.  We hope that you will be able to join us for our PTA Open House this Thursday at 6:00.  We will begin with a general session in the multi-purpose room and then we have two classroom sessions, allowing parents the opportunity to visit two different classrooms. Come hear about the great things that are going on in the school and classrooms.
    • Early Release/Dismissal on Friday at 1:15 . | This Friday, students will be dismissed from school at 1:15.  Teachers will have the opportunity to participate in staff development for the remainder of the afternoon.  If you are interested in using the after-school care program during this time, contact the main office for more information.  Parents may elect to only use the service on early release days with pro-rated fees.

    We are excited about the year ahead and the work that we will do together to support our students.

    Yours,

    Rhonda Jones, Principal
