It’s Move Up Day!  Our 3rd grade friends will travel to the Middle School to experience what 4th grade will be like. This is a very special day - listen carefully and enjoy it.  Middle School is not scary - it is a new experience just waiting for you to walk through the doors.  We are proud of you 3rd graders!

Kindergartners will have Spanish lessons today with students from the high school spanish program.  Muchas Gracias to our HS friends!  


Relay For Life waterbottles are still out there and you are welcome to bring them in as soon as possible.  The Relay For Life team asks that you turn them in no later than Tuesday.  Thank you for your support of the fight against cancer.  You are all super heros!  


Next Thursday, May 21st is the R.C. Waters Art Show. This is an amazing night - the halls are transformed a showcase of students’ unique art creations.  In addition to the students works of creativity, remember that we are also looking for staff members creations too.  You’ve got the weekend to do some crafting or perhaps you already have a piece ready to go!  Staff art submissions are due on Tuesday.

Today is Rocket Pride Friday...last week we learned all about Mrs. Gruber.  The 2nd retiree in our “fabulous retirees of R.C” series is Mrs. Jensen and now it’s time to learn more about her.  Mrs. Jensen has two children and she is very proud of them.  Her daughter followed in her footsteps and is a Kindergarten teacher herself. Her son is an an honors student and is studying Accounting. Mrs. Jensen has been a teacher for 34 years!  She began as a reading teacher.  For the last 25 years she has been a kindergarten teacher here at RC Waters. Mrs. Jensen enjoys volunteering at her church where she has taught Sunday School there and is chariman of Parish Education as well as a member of the church council.  In her spare time she likes to shop, read and spend time with her family.  Mr. and Mrs. Jensen will be taking a cruise of the Eastern Caribbean this summer.  How fun!  Mrs. Jensen has given 34 years of her life to the lives of others.  From the hundreds of reading students and kindergartners who have had the honor to be in her classes to the staff members and friends who have enjoyed sharing their days and making memories with her, we all wish Mrs. Jensen the very best in the future.  Congratulations Mrs. Jensen!  



All boys and girls are welcome to join both the Cub Scouts and American Heritage Girls for a bowling party this Sunday at the Oak Harbor Bowling Alley beginning at 5:00 pm. This is a chance to have fun and learn about what these groups.
