Highlights from our Principal



We have finished or wrapping up ACAP, iReady, and a host of other diagnostic tests so that we can evaluate student learning this year. It is a long process but helpful to us in planning. Children should be working on iReady this summer to help support them in retaining the information they have learned and not becoming part of the summer slide which happens when students are not academically engaged. 
Mrs. Wilson, STEAM Teacher, has been working tirelessly on our STEAM camp for current k-4 students. She has a host of activities scheduled for the 4 day camp. It will be lots of fun! If you are interested, you can contact her at or find more information on the flyer that was sent home, social media, or pay on myschoolfees.
If you have not taken time to thank a teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-7th. Please take a moment to do so! We are fortunate to have some of the best of the best at RES!
Thanks for an amazing year! I cannot believe that it is coming to a close. I do want to take a moment to remind you of a few upcoming dates:
5/25 5th Grade Talent Show (5th grade students only)
5/26 Field Day
5/26 Early Dismissal 11:15
5/27 Early Dismissal 11:15
Lastly, if you will not be returning to RES, please contact Ms. Harris at 205-439-3419. She will arrange a time for you to come in and withdraw your child. This will have to be done so that you have the correct paperwork for enrollment in your new school.
Enjoy your summer!
