Dear RHL Families,
As we start a new school year, what a fabulous opportunity it is to continue to create the most caring school community at RHL.
Our RHL Caring Majority Team is a group of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who review Bully Tools, report to classrooms to review Bully Tools, and generate ideas and projects for making our school the kindest place a kid could go to school. Two Caring Majority Reps are chosen from each 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classroom by their classroom teacher to serve on this team. Our Caring Majority Reps are students who naturally show kindness and compassion, work to include kids, welcome new kids to our school, use their HAHASO Bully Tools, and basically spread sunshine wherever they go! They are our ambassadors of kindness! They also have a commitment to serve as a leader in our school, to be a fabulous role model, and want to make our school a wonderfully caring environment for kids to learn in.
Please know that letters will be going home to parents of children selected to be on this team around mid September. Please check the links here for more information about this great leadership organization at RHL.
Meeting dates will be 9-17, 10-22, 11-19, 12-17, 1-21, 2-25, 3-24, and 4-21. All meeting times will be 2-45-3:45, except the last meeting of the year, which will be 2:45-4:45.
