  • Touch of Understanding Assembly is This Week!  - A Touch of Understanding (ATOU) provides disability awareness programs designed to educate a new generation to understand the challenges associated with disabilities and to accept and respect all individuals. A Touch of Understanding is a nonprofit organization comprised of dedicated individuals, some with disabilities and some without. These dedicated volunteers come together to form a strong team working to help students look beyond the disability, the wheelchair, the braces, the unpredictable behavior and see the person.  The program works by turning negative attitudes into positive ones and facilitating stronger interpersonal skills within the next generation. Attitudes improve and respectful interactions increase.  The assembly will be held on Thursday, October 19th for 5th graders and on October 20th for 4th graders from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please check out the website, for more information.
  • Rescue Costume Parade – We will be holding our annual costume parade on Monday, October 31st at 9:00am.  Students may wear their costumes to school, but may wish to change out of their costumes after the parade.  Scary costumes are not allowed as we will have young children participating in the parade.  Full face masks and weapons are not allowed as well.  Families that wish to be present during the parade will need to sign in at the office and get a visitor’s badge.  Traffic will be heavier on that day, so please allow for enough time to get to school and utilize the Rescue West parking lot.  We look forward to a great parade and appreciate your cooperation.
  • Yearbook Purchase – Speaking of yearbooks, don't miss your chance to purchase a yearbook for the lowest price possible! Through Dec. 31st, yearbooks may be purchased for $20 (softcover) and $25 (hardcover). Flyers were sent home with your student this week with instructions for purchasing online, by check, or with cash. For those of you who wish to buy online, visit Enter ID code: 2517018.
  • Yearbook Cover Contest – Calling all students to be creative! Yearbook Club is holding its annual cover contest, now through Oct. 25th. Students in all grades are invited to submit an original design on the cardstock provided. Check your student's folder for detailed instructions and cardstock.
  • After School Pick up – This is a friendly reminder regarding after school pick up procedures.  If you are walking on campus, please wait by the covered picnic table area.  Please do not wait outside of your child’s classroom.  Your child’s teacher will walk their class out.  If you are picking your child up in front of the office, please pull forward to the end of the curb to help the flow of traffic.  If you choose to park and meet your student, please use the appropriate entrance and park in the appropriate spaces.  Please do not park in handicap spaces unless you have a placard.  Rescue West is available for parking.  All students need to be picked up by 3:15pm on regular days and by 12:55pm on Early Release days.  We are not able to supervise students after that period of time.  Traffic may be a little heavier as we add our Kindergarteners, please be patient.  Thank you for your help with this!
