    From the Desk of Mrs. Meldrum
    Dear RES Families,

    Fall has arrived to Rainier Elementary School!  We are excited to announce three special events this month which are listed below. 

    Booster Club Dance – Friday, October 21st  (RES Family Event)
    The Rainier Elementary School Booster Club Presents, “Rainier Elementary Fall Dance.”   The dance is put on by our Booster Club and runs from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm.  RES Families are to enter the gym through the playground entrance.  No early entry or drop-offs allowed.  Costumes must be school friendly (no blood or gore or weapons allowed). 

    Fall Festival – Monday, October 31st (Students-only Event)
    Rainier Elementary School will be having their Fall Festival from 1:50 pm -2:50 pm.  This is a students-only event.  Students will be rotating classrooms within their grade level for an activity.   Students may wear their costumes to school; however, to ensure that we keep this a positive, safe environment for our students, we make a few requests.  Since it is during school hours, students will not be able to wear gory costumes, have their face painted, wear costumes with a mask or costumes with weapons.  Please ensure that your child’s costume is one they can manage by themselves without help as our campus will not be open for visitors during the festival.   Please help our Fall Festival by donating a bag of wrapped, fun sized candy or a $2.00 donation.

    Fall Conferences (RES Family Event)
    Conferences are a wonderful opportunity to discuss the progress your child is making this quarter.  An email with a link was sent out yesterday (10/19) from your child’s teacher to sign up for a conference time (in-person, phone or video).  We will do our best to accommodate families, however we will only have enough time slots for one 15 minute conference per child.  Our conferences will be held on the following dates: 

    • Tuesday, November 1st (4:30 – 7:30 pm)
    • Wednesday, November 2nd (12:30 – 3:30 pm)
    • Thursday, November 3rd (12:30 – 3:30 pm)

    Our conference week looks as follows:

    • Monday, October 31st is a regular school day (on an activity schedule).  Release time is still 2:50 pm.
    • Tuesday, November 1st – Friday, November 4th are half days for all students (8:25 am – 11:35 am).

    Lunch will be served on half-days.
    Thank you for your continued support,
    Mrs. Meldrum, Principal
