I hope this email finds you well and that your families experienced minimal affects from last week's winter storm. Our family was very fortunate, though a little cold, and we were all ready to get back into our routine today and see our friends back in the classroom.
I would also like to thank you for helping your child stay responsible for his or her chromebook! I was super proud of them as almost all brought them in this morning! If your child still has their chromebook at home, please make sure they return it tomorrow.
Looking ahead, I wanted to let you all know about RES Spirit Night at Chipotle. If you order on Wednesday evening from 4:00 to 8:00, and mention RES, our school will get a 33% of the proceeds!
Also, next Monday will be the 100th day of school! Your child is welcome to dress up as a 100 year old or wear some fun 100 related attire!
Lastly, I'd like to remind everyone that we will begin writing our autobiographies in the next day or two. If your child did not have a chance to complete the green questionnaire that was sent home, please help him or her fill in the blanks and bring back to school tomorrow.
Thank you so much for your continuous support and have a great week!
