Creek Games will be held on Tuesday, November 14th!
Your student brought home two papers for that event on Friday. The pink paper is an RSVP and guarantees your student a ticket for the video game truck when turned in on time and the green is a good pre-order form. Please return those forms by Monday, 11/13. More details are in the PTA newsletter shared at the bottom of this email.
The RCMMS Family Engagement Committee will be sponsoring a schoolwide collection of food items from October 16th-November 9th. This has been such a great success in the past, so we want to continue our goal of collectively working together to support our students and families. Each grade-level first-period class that brings in the most canned items will have a DONUT CELEBRATION! We ask that there be NO expired donations. Suggested items: unexpired canned items, macaroni, spaghetti, dressing, etc. If anyone is willing to donate a turkey, that would be fantastic! See our Fall Donation Drive flyer.
