Our Parent-Teacher groups are always busy supporting our schools, students, and staff! Last week, during Teacher Appreciation Week, was no different!
These organizations took some time to show appreciation for the RCS District teachers and staff through a variety of events and activities. Each group held a week-long celebration to thank our staff for their tremendous efforts and dedication to our students.
Big thank you to these groups for always putting together such amazing events and programs for our school community! To learn more about these groups, please click here.
Our teachers and staff have a very important job -- if you see one around, please say thank you! They pour their hearts into helping mold our students!
Thank you, Teachers and Staff!!
