RHPCS Families,
Season’s Greetings to all!  We are tremendously excited to have the opportunity to share our student talents and the joy of the season by putting on a Holiday Concert for our families and friends. 
Our performers will include:
Ø  Our Kindergarten through 5th Grade classes
Ø  Our Middle School Choir students
Ø  Our Middle School Orchestra/Band students
We know it is a busy time of year, but we are counting on our students to be available to participate. Please mark the day and time on your December calendar!   As an added encouragement, every student participant will earn a Free Dress Day on Friday, December 9th (the day following the concert).
Children participating are encouraged to dress up for the performance.  Holiday attire and colors are welcome.  However, a special shopping trip is not necessary, school uniform is always appropriate. 

Our performance is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. but we ask that students arrive at the church at 6:15 p.m. for a final walk-through rehearsal.  While the children go through their final preparations, families are invited to enjoy time together at a pre-concert reception.

November Update!

GOOD MORNING!

What a great week we had last week. Thank you to everyone who showed up to Parent-Teacher Conferences. I truly LOVE talking with parents to get your perspective on how your child is doing or enjoying school. If you ever want to chat again, about anything, please let me know!

THE LIBRARY IS IN NEED!
Next week, the library is holding it's fall book fair and Mrs. Cooper (our librarian) is in need of some parent volunteers. She is wonderful and tries to have the book fair open before school, at lunch and after school. However, she is just one person. If you can give her some of your time, we would really appreciate it! Please email her at tcooper@rhpcs.org. 

Kindergarten is continuing to collect food for our FOOD DRIVE. So far, we have collected about 200 items of food. Our goal is 400. Keep sending anything your have sitting around in your cupboards or pantry! 

In Math, we will be jumping into position words, 2-D and 3-D SHAPES!  This is a favorite for the kids because they get to build and play with the shapes. Playing the "I Spy" game shapes version, is always a fun at home activity.

In English, we have almost covered ALL of the letter names and sounds. Remember, the goal is for each child to read 43 names and 30 sounds in 1 minute. We will not only continue to practice this fluency but will continue growing their reading skills. Part of this is learning their sight words and reading their "Book in a Bag" daily, no more than 15 minutes total. 

I am excited for everything for on this month and the beginning of December. Thank you so much for working hard with your child and supporting their education. We are successful because of YOU! Have a great November and let me know if you need anything from me!
