2018-19 Family Events

 

One of our goals as a school and a PTA is to foster a sense of community, and bring RCES families together for fun events. Here are some of the events we have held this year, or plan to hold. We hope that you'll join us!

 

 

Kindergarten Playdate

Thursday, August 30 at 3:00pm (following Sneak Peek)

RCES Playground

 

Come out and meet your fellow classmates at our annual get together for kids entering Kindergarten this school year! These playdates are a great opportunity for kids and parents to meet other incoming kindergarteners before the first day of school, and to ask questions of the PTA members on hand. All are encouraged to invite other incoming kindergarteners!

 

Carmen's Italian ice will be available for purchase. 

 

 

Don't Worry, Be Happy Kindergarten Parents Coffee

First Day of School, September 4 at 9:15am

RCES Courtyard (enter through the Media Center)

 

Whether it's your 1st child or your 5th, the first day of Kindergarten is a big deal for kids and parents alike! Come share your cheers (and tears), while meeting other parents.

Complimentary coffee, bagels and tissues will be provided, courtesy of your RCES PTA.

 

 

Back to School Picnic

Friday, October 5

5-7pm

RCES Upper Field (rain location: All Purpose Room)

 

Come see how much fun our school is! Join the PTA and RCES staff on the upper field, see old friends and make new ones!

Dinner and dessert will be available for purchase, or bring your own. Don't forget lawn chairs or picnic blankets, or plan to purchase our awesome RCES blankets and chairs at the PTA table, where you can also join and contribute to PTA.

There will be inflatables, games and lots to do!
