Please join us for our annual RPES Arts & Sciences Night sponsored by the Ritchie Park PTA with support from Asif Qadir and RE/MAX Realtors (WWW.ASIFQADIR.COM)
We will have an amazing show by Mad Science!, a make and take station where the little panthers can try their hands at using science to make their own concoctions (like SLIME!) in addition to great projects our RPES students have worked on for weeks.
*If your child is bringing an individual project, you may start bringing them into the gym at 6 pm.
Parents - please note that our April PTA meeting will be held at COLLEGE GARDENS ELEMENTARY. See below for important information about the meeting:
Damon Monteleone, the principal at Richard Montgomery High School (RMHS), will talk about the progression of mathematics classes from elementary school to high school. Frequently parents have questions about how math placement in grades four and five impact opportunities in high school and college. Mr. Monteleone will talk about high school classes and take questions from parents. This is a cluster event and it will be held at College Gardens Elementary School (CGES). The PTA business meeting for each school will be held after the math presentation at CGES.
The Ritchie Park PTA meeting will be VERY IMPORTANT to attend because it will be your chance to discuss opinions on the boundary study with other members of Ritchie Park before a very important boundary study meeting later that week.
Please take the time to attend this very important PTA meeting!
