Randels Elementary YouthQuest Update

This week, Randels Kindergarten and First Grade students were able to learn from a few special friends that we all know and love. Sloan Museum has a display running through April that familiarizes the students with healthy living and eating. All the members of Sesame Street were gathered to assist with this extended learning opportunity. Elmo even hosted a breakfast that day and read bedtime stories to the inquisitive students. Students were able to go grocery shopping and pick through several items, including fruits and vegetables. There was also a display breaking down mucus, the lungs, the heart and more. This group enjoyed themselves and took advantage of being able to interact with the displays. Randels Elementary YouthQuest Update

Rankin Elementary Lost and Found is Overflowing!

Parents, once again we must ask for your assistance with our overflowing lost and found area. We have quite a collection of hats, gloves, shirts and even some lunch boxes and shoes! If your child’s name is on their belongings we can return lost items to them. If there is not a name we can only hope that someone recognizes their stuff and picks it up. Rankin Elementary Lost and Found is Overflowing!With the warmer weather coming soon, kids tend to take off their coats when out for recess and then go back inside leaving them on the play ground. These items often make their way to lost and found. If you are dropping off your student, or picking up early, please take a minute and look through our collection of lost and found and see if anything belongs at your house. Any lost and found items left behind once school is out will be donated.
