We held our final Crew of the school year today. Students learned that nothing is impossible through teamwork. They also came up with a motto for the summer. "Don't just sit there. Get up and do it." We wish all of our students wonderful summer break filled with adventure!

Grade 3 went on a pirate adventure at Scallywags in Erie, PA. Students read Peter Pan prior and this was an extension of that learning. Everyone had a blast on this interactive adventure, and each student brought a little treasure home with them as well!

Students in grades 6 and 1 spent their recess together in the library. Students spun the Genre Wheel and then picked stories that matched their genre. The first graders were wonderful listeners for their sixth grade reading buddies. What a cool idea Mrs. Kondrick!

5/27/2022 Dear RCS Families, We had a wonderful week at RCS highlighted by the performance of Disney Aladdin Kids. The performing arts encourages children to explore their emotions, expand their imagination and help them develop their own, unique voice. We have been focusing on the Ripley Character Trait of “Grit” this week, and the students knocked it out of the park on Tuesday. Each of them persevered until achieving high quality work! A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Kondrick, Mrs. Mazurkiewicz, Mrs. Meredith, and Mrs. Parker for supporting the students throughout the entire process. I will be taking the students that completed their nightly reading homework for the months of March and April on a special field trip this coming Tuesday (5/31). The students will be spending approximately 3 hours outside in indirect sunlight. I would recommend applying an SPF of 30 or greater onto your child prior to school if they will be attending the trip. A baseball cap also might be a good idea to add an additional level of sun protection. The weather report looks like it will be a beautiful day. The school will be closed this Monday in observance of Memorial Day. Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season. Have a wonderful long weekend!
