Rhame Avenue School
At Rhame Avenue, we treat everyone with KINDNESS and RESPECT!
I can’t believe that June is here already and another school year is coming to a close! It has been an incredible year here at Rhame Avenue and I want to thank all of the parents for supporting us throughout the school year. June is a month filled with exciting events and activities for our students while valuable instruction continues to take place each and every day. Look closely at the calendar and on our website for dates and times of these events. Please remember that all students should continue to do their homework, come to school on time, study for tests and give their best ef- forts in the classroom until the very last day.
Our best wishes to our graduating 6th grade class as they embark on a journey into the Junior/Senior High School. This year both our 6th Grade Awards Ceremony and 6th Grade Graduation Ceremony will be held in the Harry Bunting Auditorium at ERHS. The Award Ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, June 14th at 7:00 p.m. and the 6th Grade Grad- uation Ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19th at 5:00 p.m. I look forward to sharing these important ‘Rites of Passage’ with you and your children. I am extremely proud of their accomplishments and I look forward to the many exciting activities and events we have planned to share together as the year comes to an end. The entire graduating class has proven themselves as successful learners and community leaders. They have been given the tools for success and I have the utmost confidence in their abilities as they leave our school and move onto the next stage in their aca- demic careers.. Our students, parents and their teachers deserve a standing ovation!
We still have many items in our Lost and Found. Please stop by the Lost and Found area outside the gymnasium whenever you are in the building to see if you recognize any items. There will be a Lost and Found table set up on Field Day as well. All remaining items will be donated at the end of the school year.
With warmer weather approaching, more students will be taking their bicycles and scooters to school. Please be re- minded that no child will be allowed to ride a bike without a helmet. To prevent theft, all bicycles and scooters should also be locked up during the day and after school.
If you intend to move out of the district this summer, please be sure to sign a transfer card which is located in the main
office or contact your child’s teacher. This will help us expedite the necessary information to other districts.
Keep your child’s skills sharp this summer and encourage them to read daily. Our Summer Homework Action Team has re-worked the summer homework packet to make it more accessible for all students and we hope that you can find the time to help your child complete as much as possible. I also want to encourage all parents to visit the public library this summer and enjoy the beautiful resources that are available for children of all ages.
School will reopen on Tuesday, September 4th, 2018. I wish every family an amazing summer vacation and I look forward to seeing you all in September!
