November 2014 Newsletter


November 6, 2014  


Dear Rio Linda Preparatory Academy Families:


November is the month to reflect on all our blessings.  Each of your children is a blessing to the RLPA staff.  We are a family that cares and is vested in your child’s academic future.  We thank you for sending us your children; may your Thanksgiving Day and week be blessed.  



Fantastic October at RLPA:

The students participated in Red Ribbon Activities and enjoyed every event; a special thank you to Ms. Speakman for coordinating the Red Ribbon Week activities. The students also celebrated their first school dance.  The dance was a great success and the customes were scary, cute, funny and unique.  We want to thank Ms. Sumers, parent volunteers and Student Leadership for organizing the dance.



Parent Teacher Conferences in November:  

Parents/guardians, we have two days set aside for teacher conferences on Nov. 20-21, 2014 in which you will have an opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers. You will be contacted by classroom teachers to set up a meeting time. If you are unable to come to your appointment, teachers will be happy to do a conference with you by phone or to meet in person at an arranged time during the school week.


Communication between you and the teacher is critical to your child's success. Inform teachers how they can communicate with you.  You can use School Loop, student agendas, e-mail, texting, or the good old fashion phone call.  Please inform the office if you get a new phone number.  We need to be able to reach you in case of an emergency and when I send calls to all parents about school activities or other.


Rio Linda Chamber of Commerce:

RLPA students, staff and parents would like to thank you for the opportunity you provide our school to raise funds for extra-curricular activities for our students.  We thank you for the $4,000 donation.  Thank you for making a difference in our students and the community. 

Registration Packets Reward Day:

Student who turned in their registration packets to the office by May 30, 2014 were eligible to attend an ice cream social.  The students enjoyed socializing with their friends and eating their ice cream.  Parents thank you for returning the registration packets at the end of the school year. 


 Thank you to McDonalds for the Fund Raising Opportunity:

Our teachers and students raised $500 at McDonalds Teacher Night. Thank you to the parents and teachers who had dinner at McDonalds. And we want to give a special vote of appreciation to the management of the McDonald’s of Rio Linda. They have been consistent supporters of our school.


PTA Fund Raiser and New Location for Parent Center: 

Congratulations to the Fifth Grade class that raised the most money for their Dollar Fundraiser. The students raised $1,255. Several students raised more than $50 each.  Our PTA parents will be rewarding all students who raised $25 or more with a Pizza Party plus special gifts for the students who raised the most money.


Our Parent Center has moved to a new location.  The new location is next to the cafeteria and this location will make it easier for our PTA members to have access to our students.  Our PTA will take the lead on several fundraisers and events.  Please plan to attend Dessert with Santa (Dec. 11th, 5:30-7:30 p.m.), Student Holiday Store (Dec. 15th-16th), Family Dinner Night (Jan. 15th, 5:30-7:30 p.m.), Valentine Store (Feb. 9th – 12th) and 8th Grade T-shirt Sales (April 7th).

School Wide Kendama Ban


Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
