May 2020 Newsletter
Posted on 05/15/2020
Hello RRE families,

Welcome to the final newsletter for the 2019- 2020 school year. I hope this newsletter finds you and your family healthy and well. It's nice to have such amazing spring weather and I hope you have been able to get outside to soak up some Vitamin D. What a crazy school year, I believe is an understatement! A first for all of us! Going through an abrupt transition from a regular school day to virtual learning was a steep learning curve for everyone involved. Thank you for your patience, flexibility and understanding as we all continue to navigate this new learning environment. The District has been working with State and Local agencies to develop a plan for the Fall. You will be receiving updates throughout the summer as progress is made on an action plan. RRE Curbside Distribution is scheduled for Monday, May 18th and Tuesday, May 19th. Details are posted on our school website. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly peter.mosby@dcsdk12.org. The week of May 11th is the last week of remote learning supported by technology. The following week is the official last week of school. Learning will continue through remote learning opportunities shared by your child’s teacher(s). If you have any questions, please follow up with your teacher. I want to give a HUGE shout out to all of our volunteers that make a dramatic impact on our students and classrooms everyday. Normally, we would be honoring you with a volunteer breakfast. I look forward to this event every year. Know that your time and energy have not gone unappreciated and that the entire staff is grateful for your continued support and service. Thank you to Lydia Goodland (PTO President) and our entire PTO for the countless acts of support and hours behind the scenes to benefit our families, students and faculty. Congratulations to our continuing 6th Graders! We will be having a virtual continuation ceremony that will be shared with 6th grade families on Thursday, May 21st at 5:00pm. It has been a privilege to be part of your elementary journey and look forward to hearing about all future accomplishments. Make us proud! I want to give a special shout out to our School Accountability Committee that consists of parents, teachers and community members. This is a group of individuals that make recommendations to the principal regarding school policies. We will be having our last SAC meeting Tuesday, May 12th. I would like to thank our outgoing member Stacy Chamaty, who served as Chair and CoChair during her tenure at RRE. We appreciate your dedication and support to RRE and our community. August 2020, we will be holding SAC elections and are searching for a parent and a community representation to serve. Please contact me for more information or if you are interested in serving on this committee. Have a great summer. Stay safe and healthy. Looking forward to seeing you all next school year.
Thanks for an unprecedented and memorable year!

Peter Mosby
