TEACHER APPRECIATION LUNCHEON – WEDNESDAY, MAY 11th

For many years, the Staff Appreciation Committee has provided a luncheon for the teachers and staff of our school to acknowledge their dedication in educating our children as well as ensuring their safety and well-being.  This year, the luncheon will be on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016, in the Literacy Garden and we would like to serve cuisine that represents the cultural diversity of our school.

As you know, the success of this luncheon depends solely on generous donations and participation from our RDCS parents.  This year we are asking families to prepare traditional dishes that identify the country/region that they are from to share with our teachers and staff.  Please email anelim_m@yahoo.com to let the committee know what type of dish you would like to contribute.  Food donation drop-off will be on May 11th, starting at 8:00AM in the Parent Center.

We are also asking for volunteers for the following:

Receive Food Donations and Set Up from 8:00AM – 10:00AM
Serve Food from 10:00AM – 12:00PM
Serve Food and Clean Up from 12:00PM – 2:30PM
CLICK HERE to sign up to volunteer.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on May 11th.


BOX TOPS DUE
WHEN:  Tuesday, May 10

This is the last week to turn in your Box Tops.

ROOM PARENTS – please deliver them to the box in the front office mail room.

So far this year, our school has earned $875 from Box Tops.  Let’s see if we can hit $1,000!  Remember, the classroom that brings in the most from January – May wins a class party, and so does the classroom that brings in the most for the year!
