Important information!

UPDATED ACADEMIC CALENDAR: So far this year we have used three of our five emergency days because of winter weather, which now affects our end-of-year calendar.

The school year will be extended an additional three days for all RPS 205 students.

The new last day of school will be:
• Early Childhood: Friday, June 7, 2024
• Grades K-11: Monday, June 10, 2024
• Grade 12: Wednesday, May 22, 2024

For our seniors, as you move towards graduation, everyday counts. Our mission is to ensure everyone meets the requirements to proudly receive their diplomas.
You might feel like you're being asked to stick around a bit longer, but that's not entirely true. In fact, compared to last year, you'll finish school two days earlier.

Additional updates to the academic calendar:

• End of third quarter for middle schools: Friday, April 5, 2024
• Make-up Day for Parent Teacher Conferences: Tuesday, June 11, 2024

As a reminder, if we must use our additional two emergency days, all the dates above will be adjusted by two days.

Fun with ratios and proportional relationships! Students had to bring only enough to feed 4-5 people, then write how one would change the ingredients to feed 20 people. It also had to be something they traditionally eat over Winter Break.
Student contributions included:
Catrachitas-tortilla/tostadas with beans from Honduras
Ropa Vieja from Cuba
Baleadas from Honduras
Arepas from Venezuela
Tinga, Tamales, Mexican potato chips, cookies, and Chocoflan from Mexico
Fruit salad and donuts
Mrs. Calgaro provided the plates, plastic ware, and drinks. It was not mandatory, only a handful in each class brought something, but they all got to try a little! The students did an amazing job!

Children perceive the world through the lens of our actions, not just our words. They are keen observers, absorbing not only what we say but, more significantly, how we navigate the complexities of life. Our behaviors become their guide, shaping their understanding of relationships, resilience, and values.

What do you model?
