June 2018

Dear Ron Russell Families,

You’re Invited to the End of Year Awards Assembly June 13 from 1:30-2:30PM!  We will be recognizing grades 6, 7, and 8 students for a variety of different awards on this day.  All the students will be sitting in the main gym for the assembly.  Families are invited to view live from The Commons; we will project the assembly onto the big screen on stage.  Since there isn’t a space large enough to accommodate all of us together, we thought this would be inclusive.  Afterward, students will pick up Yearbooks.

The last academic or teaching day of the year is Wednesday, June 13.  It is the last day for students who do not qualify for reward activities.

End-of-School-Year Reward Activities (Page 10 of the Student Planner & Handbook):

– Have been suspended out of school no more than once for the entire school year.
– Receive no suspensions after May 11th.
– Receive no referrals after June 1st.
– Pay all fees/fines.

Rewards Activities:

On Thursday, June 14, those students who qualify, may attend Oaks Park (school day) and the 8th Grade Party (6:00-8:00 pm).
