This month, our focus has centered around the theme of teamwork. Today, we engaged in a hands-on activity by constructing marshmallow towers. As a team, we took the opportunity to reflect on our efforts, areas in which we excelled and identified areas for improvement. Great job!

This morning, the entire building came together in the large gymnasium for November's Crew Celebration, centered around the theme of Teamwork. A heartfelt shout-out goes to the Fredonia State Menโ€™s Basketball team, whose presence at RCS added an extra layer of excitement for our students. The players shared an engaging teamwork drill to each class, fostering a sense of collaboration and unity. Following the activity, they made their way to classrooms, where they shared the joy of reading with our eager students. It was heartening to see the students take full advantage of this unique opportunity, asking insightful questions and forging connections with their basketball player. Our partnership with the Fredonia State Menโ€™s Basketball team has undoubtedly enriched the lives of our students, and we're eagerly looking forward to their next visit. A special appreciation goes to Coach Smiley for reaching out and playing a crucial role in facilitating this meaningful connection. The impact of this collaboration was felt by both our students and the players, making it a truly rewarding experience for all involved. A heartfelt thank you to Coach Smiley and the entire team!

5th grade grew their communication and teamwork skills as we worked together to complete a series of team building challenges at Mission Meadows. We learned that stepping out of your comfort zone may scare you, but is so rewarding in the end. You can't grow if you never stretch!
