Reminder: Bring Your Drivers License to LME on Your Next Visit
As of last week all RRISD schools have a new version of the Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System which means we need to re-scan ALL drivers licenses or state issued ID, even if your ID had been scanned in the past. Upon your next visit to the school, please be sure to have a valid state-issued ID with you.

   In the Tree Frog Classroom...
Math:  Decimals are next.  Our pretest scores were decent, so we differentiate with activities relating fractions to decimals and adding and subtracting decimals.  Then we will focus on some problem-based learning and project-based learning with decimals.
Science:   We will cycle into patterns on Earth.  We will study the phases of the moon, seasons, and end with how those concepts influence shadows on Earth. 
Social Studies:  The Alamo has fallen and the settlers are running away to Louisiana.  Col. Fannin will not follow Sam Houston's orders and there will be a great loss of men.  So is the life of our Revolution.  Each battle will re-enacted, with students assigned to play a role.  Then we will write summaries of the battles and mark their locations on our map.  Once we finish the revolution, all students will have a book of battle summaries.

Year-long Resources:
Volunteer Applications & Sign Up:  
Any person wishing to volunteer in RRISD is required to complete a Volunteer Application each school year, to improve student safety. We strongly encourage all our parents to complete a 'Volunteer Application' as early in the year as possible. You must have a volunteer application on file each school year if you plan to chaperone a field trip. Click here to complete the volunteer application
