November and December 2023

Greetings Rainier Families,

We have had some amazing activities this fall. Our PTO supported and helped organize an amazing fun run, we’ve had several awards assemblies, and we had a heartfelt Veterans Day assembly. We are currently in the process conducting conferences and our PTO book fair is under way in our Library. I have some important information for November and December.

  • Our first grading period (first trimester) ends December 1st and report cards will be hand carried home by students on December 8th.
  • Thanksgiving Break is November 23rd and 24th and there is no school on these days. We have an early release Wednesday, November 22nd at 12 pm.
  • There will be no school for Winter Break December 25th through January 5th. School is back in session January 8th.
  • Our Art Teacher, Mrs. Harmon will be hosting Winter Family Art Night December 14th from 4:30 – 5:30. We will send out details the first week of December.
  • Spirit days are Wednesdays and Fridays. On Wednesday we wear our school spirit wear or blue and gold. On Fridays we encourage our kids to wear their favorite jerseys or sports wear.
  • Third grade through fifth grade will be hosting a culture fair November 28th from 8:45 – 12:30. Watch for information from your student’s teacher.
  • We have a PTO meeting November 30th from 6 – 7 pm in our cafeteria. All Rainier families are welcome and encouraged to attend.
  • A reminder that our doors open to students at 8:05 am and classes begin at 8:30 am on a regular day. On late start Wednesday doors open at 9:05 am and class starts at 9:30 am.

Be sure to have a clear plan every day on how your student gets home. Once this plan is communicated to your student’s teacher, every student gets a backpack tag indicating how they get home each day. If this ever needs to change, please inform the teacher a day early, or call the main office before 2:30 pm.
