Hello Redstone families. Here are your PTO updates for the week of 12/10/2018:

 

Teacher Scrips Reminder - Deadline Friday, 12/14

Hello Redstone families! It's that time of year again...the time when many of you think about holiday gifts for teachers and staff. In the past, Redstone parents wanted to extend their holiday wishes and gratitude to a variety of staff members and teachers (both past and present) but just couldn't find it in the budget to give gift cards to all! So, here at Redstone, we came up with a solution through an elective program known as Scrip - which allows families to choose which staff they would like to give a gift to...and in ANY dollar amount. This allows us to collect all of the dollar amounts for each teacher and staff member, combine them into one total amount - and the staff can then order gift cards they need or use often, as their holiday gift. You can truly participate in any dollar amount (even $1) - the money is collected into separate pots for each staff member - and the teacher/staff then receive a notification about their dollar amount and the families that contributed! The dollar amount you contributed IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE NOTICE - just simply "Happy Holidays from the following families" and then each family is listed. The program also extends a DOUBLE BENEFIT to Redstone.  All gift cards chosen by our staff, receive a percentage back to Redstone Elementary programs and needs! It's a win-win-win! For those interested, you have the opportunity to give gifts to the staff members of your choice, they choose and receive gifts cards of their choice, and Redstone receives money back! All gift contributions must be received by Friday, December 14th. Please see a flyer here with more information.

 

Spirit Wear Fridays

Don’t forget Spirit Wear Fridays at Redstone. Students are encouraged to wear their RSE gear or school colors (burgundy, black & silver) to show their school pride.

Congratulations to Mrs. Lopez and her class for having the most participation in November!!
