From the Principal’s Desk 09/01/2015

Dear Parents,

 We have successfully started our current school year in a positive, encouraging, and engaging manner having already celebrated a milestone event!

On August 7th RPES held a “Back to School Bash” representing its “10 Year Anniversary” of serving the community through educating its children who will become tomorrow’s leaders. We celebrate this milestone with great pride and optimism. RPES is a progressive school that thinks ahead, embraces history, and instills that feeling of pride within its students. Of course, this cannot be done without the unyielding assistance of parents, staff and community at large so we thank you all for that!

RPES, along with several other Newton schools, will be participating in an event on September 26, 2015 featuring “The Harlem Wizards” basketball team. We are asking that all of our parents represent Rocky Plains by attending this school-wide event. Come out and support our school! Let’s show the Harlem Wizards and the rest of Newton County what it means to be a member of the Rocky Plains family! Enjoy experiencing a memory with your student, and represent RPES proudly! We are counting on each of you to do your part in making this event a success for us!

Parent conferences will begin September 11th with additional dates available through your student’s teacher. I encourage you to come in and speak with your student’s teacher as this is the first formal opportunity you have to engage in discussions about your student.
RPES will host its annual “Grandparent Luncheon” on September 15th, 16th and 17th. We invite all grandparents to come and share a lunch with your grandchild and be recognized as an important part of the RPES family. Please refer to the calendar for the specified date assigned to your grandchild’s grade level. Come and enjoy!
As always, we thank every single one of you for everything that you do for your student, and for our great school.
