Hello Parents,
 
I would like to first say thank you so very much to all the parents who donated pies and volunteered their time to help make this year's Pie day a huge success. Every staff member received a pie to take home and enjoy with their family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday.  Your kindness was greatly appreciated! It was well received by all the teachers and staff.
 
 Next Friday, December 7th from 3:30p.m - 5:00 p.m. is our Winter Glow Dance for all RCMS students. Tickets are on sale now for $7.00.  It includes 1 slice of pizza, 1 soda, admission and a glow stick.  Order early to ensure that you receive a food ticket.  Tickets sold at the door do not guarantee you food and drink items.  It is while supply lasts.  Other concessions will be sold at the dance starting at $1.  There will be free glow in the dark tribal face painting and live DJ.   Please see the attached flyer for pricing.   When your child purchases a dance ticket, they will be given an actual ticket. Students will need a ticket to enter the dance and to receive their pizza, soda and glow stick.

December 19 is TCBY Grinch Day!
TCBY will be selling Grinch (green) yogurt for $2.50 and .50 for each topping.  Don't be a grinch!  Be on your best behavior, you never know who's watching to give you a free yogurt or topping!

December 20th Movie Day!
Kids get to enjoy a free Christmas movie from the PTSA during lunch time.  We will be selling hot cocoa for $1 and toppings for .25.  Popcorn for $1 and treats starting at a $1. 

*The new By Laws were approved at our PTSA general meeting on September 14, 2017. You can review them here.

School Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines-

Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, is implementing additional security checks for school volunteers.   Effective immediately, all volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip.  Volunteers are now identified by two different categories:  Level I or Level II.  Please review the required procedure by clicking HERE.

Advocating for Your Child's Success - Video HERE

GCS has partnered with District 1 PTA to produce a video outlining how parents can appropriately advocate for their children. The video stresses following proper channels of communications beginning with the teacher or other appropriate employee, working with teachers and other staff, staying informed through Parent Portal and teacher meetings, informing principals of concerns, etc.  You can view the video by clicking the link above.
