RHES Week 35

Posted by Andrew Davis on 5/18/2018


Greetings parents,

Well our SOL testing has begun and I would like to congratulate our 3rd-5th grade students on their diligence and effort.  Parents will be able to view student scores on the ParentVUE app with 48 hours of when the test is taken.  As you see above, our mission and goals are to provide an educational experience that goes far beyond passing an SOL assessment, but they are still an important part of the work that we do.  So whether your student scored at the advanced level or whether they fell just short of that 400, know that we will continue to do our best to prepare and empower them to be successful both in school and in life.  

Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to come for our third and final Epic Build Showcase on Monday.  Even as the principal, someone who sees your boys and girls every day, I was astouded by their critical thinking, creativity, and ability to overcome problems they faced to program their Minecraft and Scratch projects.  If you were unable to come, please take a minute to watch the following video to catch a glimpse of what our amazing students think about the projects they created using computer science skills.


Now that our Epic Build 3 Cycle is complete, the students are extending their skills. Kindergarten and first graders are being introduced to LEGO Robotics with the WeDO2.0 kits, our 2nd graders are going to be taking their WeDo Robots to new heights as they build and program them to overcome challenges, our 3rd graders will begin learning how to code in Minecraft, and our 4th and 5th graders will be learning how to use Makey Makey circuits with Scratch.  They are also applying many of the skills and standards they learned this year to PBL projects.

Green Team Update -  We need your help! 

1 1 1

We would like every child in our school to bring in one potato for our root garden!  Students will then plant the newly tilled garden out back.   A special thanks to Carter Tarbet and his army of volunteers who spent last Saturday preparing our garden.  Carter coordinated 50 volunteers for his Eagle Scout Project!  Well done Carter!  Potatos can be dropped off in our front lobby!  Be on the lookout for sign-up sheets coming home to help with the Hometown Festival!

Field Day Preparations Continue!  We need volunteers!

Our Field Day is always a big event. Our field days are theme based and non-competitive in nature. We will have one day of field day, this year. 

Tuesday, June 5th from 8:45-2:00. One Day. Whole School. Good Times. Rain Date: Wednesday, June 6th from 8:45-2:00.

We always need volunteers for these special days. We will have 20-25 stations and the classrooms travels around the stations as a whole, but the classroom teacher always needs an extra hand. As far as a number of volunteers needed. It takes between 60-75 volunteers for each field day. If you are interested in helping please sign up for what type of station you would be interested in helping Mr. Turrill with or you can sign up for helping your child's classroom teacher. You can sign up for a morning shift, an afternoon shift, or you can sign up for both shifts and stay for the whole day. For more information send Mr. Turrill an email  eric.turrill@lcps.org or go to www.rhepe.com .
