Dear Parents and Guardians,
We had a wonderful Kindergarten Round-up yesterday! We have many new Kindergartners who have brothers or sisters at the Center, but we also have new families that we are excited to have as a part of our Center family. Although we have our Kindergarten rooms full, we encourage families to put their child on the waiting list, just in case someone decides not to attend next fall.
We also have room in our other grades, especially 3-4 and 5-6. If you know someone who would like to be put on the waiting list, please have them go to our website at http://rockislandschools.org/riec/ricms/ under School Links and download a waiting list form. and then send it or bring it to the school. We will be having registration on May 9th and 10th.
Many great things are happening at RICMS. Next week 47 Rocky senior Spanish students will be at RICMS to have a Spanish Day with our students. It should be a great day! I am sure our students will learn a great deal about the language and culture of our Spanish speaking countries.
Don’t forget to come to our Science Night on April 24th. This will be one of the best experiences this year for both you and your child(ren). The Star lab (a inflatable planetarium) will be set up for you to share the beautiful night sky and constellations with your family. Teachers are organizing the night so that you and your family can experience science with hands on activities. To top off the night we will have pizza from Incredible Pizza. It is not too late to sign up! We look forward to having the best family night this year!
Boxtops contest ends this week, be sure to send them in to your child’s classroom.
Western Illinois University QC Engineering program is having their open house on Friday, April 20 fro 4:00-7:00 at 3300 River Drive, Moline. Students of all ages and their families are invited. Pizza and soda will be served.
Have a great rest of the week!
