Rummel Creek Celebrations!

Rummel Creek has always had a history of great celebrations.  This year, even with the move, RCE is showing it's true colors.....Red, White, Blue and of course ORANGE!  The music teacher, Karen Donathen, had a vision after watching the Darrin Goforth funeral to celebrate the officers of the law during our annual Red Ribbon Spirit Rally with the Rummel Creek students.

The design started in Karen's head, but quickly moved to student creativity and envolvment.  Students wrote songs, performed them, and created videos.  A committee made up of students and faculty members planned the Spirit Rally.  Ethan Manry, fifth grade student, designed the invitation and Ross Stewart, fifth grade student, began putting together video clips and coming up with ideas.  Girl Scout troops offered to do things as well.

Keep forgetting to update this blog

It's August of 2015.  We are still housed in the Transition Campus on the parking lot of Westchester Academy.  We're in the countdown months to moving into our new building back at 625 Brittmoore.  What a change is taking place on Brittmore.
Here are some photos from the first day of school.  We are up to 718 students...quite a few more this year.  Lots of new smiling faces and new parents to show around.  We are so excited this year!

Here are some updated photos on the new building.  It's really taking shape ....the cabinets are up on the wall and you can see the magnetic wall backing on the teaching wall of the classroom.

2015-16 is off to a GREAT start!
