Mrs. Watson and the student council did another fantastic job organizing Wolf night.
We are at the Beloit public library to contribute to a meeting with some of our state representatives. Check out Chase's quote in the Beloit Daily News!
It has been a really busy several weeks at RCAA. We are staying warm and plugging through. Our Avon fundraiser could have gone better, but we did have a few big sellers to carry the rest of our team.
Parent teacher conferences went well. For those I have to reschedule, I sent a note home with your student yesterday. I will be doing make-up conferences on Tuesday night.
Students are selling Avon to raise money for our school! Products will be here in time for the holidays. Click HERE to see the items we have for sale.
Amazing folks from project 16:49 are coming to visit our school tomorrow during large group advisory. You can learn more about project 16:49 by clicking HERE.
A huge thank you goes to AUSTIN for organizing a popcorn fundraiser, this visit, and lots of awareness with his project studying homelessness.
I'm using this video in advisory today to talk about empathy vs. sympathy. Our students are generally really good at being compassionate, caring human beings. I think it is partly because our school values time to reflect on values like this, and also because we all hold each-other accountable. You can see this modeled if you ask any student in the building how we feel about the phrase "shut-up." Just brace yourself. . . lol. . .
RCAA had a float in the homecoming parade last Friday. Students walked with our truck and handed out white flags for peace.
PS: I know the slideshow is sideways for some photos. I can't fix it!
Some photos from our Luau are below. Except for the grill melting through the table, it was a grand success.

We have our last Wolf Night of the year this evening from 6:00-9:00. We are having a Luau. You should wear island inspired attire (like Mr. Jobb, who is practicing his best hula). It is $9 a person this time, BUT food and favors are included in the price! Join us. We're grilling out!
The minority awards banquet was last night. We were able to honor five of our incredible students to receive recognition for their stellar academics.
I included a crazy slideshow of your middle school teachers. We're weird, but fun.
Tomorrow is the "Birthday Party for Us." We will dance a bit, exchange white elephant gifts, and eat treats. Students: Don't forget to ran-sack the goodwill pile at your house and wrap up something fun.
THEY KEYBOARDS HAVE ARRIVED! This is amazing news; we've been waiting for months. They are pretty fantastic (great quality) and we love them already. Parents should give their students a push to partake in the Keyboarding Credit we offer. Click HERE for the page!
Ms. Palumbo needs a place for her random thoughts. She's putting them here!
