PTA Announcements

Welcome Back to School Social Event
The event will be Tuesday August 21st from 4-6pm on the school playground. We will have a Jumpy House, free Face Painting, music by DJ Alex, the Redwood City Fire Department Truck, and more!! It will be a great time to come to school, say hello to friends, and enjoy some outdoor time before school begins. 

Donations for School Supplies 
Please don't wait any longer to donate $50 per student for school supplies for this year.  We are aiming for the most cost-effective, efficient, and adequate supply for all students and classrooms, giving our students the best learning experiences possible. Donate now using this link. (While this contribution is voluntary; all families are asked to donate as they are able so that each teacher and every student at RWSE has supplies they need to be successful!) 
Thank you for your support.
