Vote for Stella!


Dear Families,
Please vote for Stella the Solar Car; Stella, the solar car that visited Rio Linda Preparatory Academy in the fall, has been nominated for the 2015 Best Technology Achievement Award.  Stella the solar car was nominated along with Apple Pay, The Block Chain, Rosetta Mission's Comet Landing, and Spacex Lateral Booster. Remember that Stella  was designed and built by engineering students.  The other innovations were designed and built by huge corporations who employ thousands of people.  It will be easy for these innovations to get a lot of votes.  It will be very hard for Stella's engineering team to get votes, since they are only a group of 20.   If you would like to see Stella win this award please vote every day until January 27th.  You may vote on as many electronic devices as you have in your home.  Please ask your friends on Facebook or Twitter to join in!  
Remember to vote every day until January 27th and thank you so much for your time and support!143_solar_team_eindhoven.large.png




January 8, 2015  


Dear Rio Linda Preparatory Academy Families:


Our students took the time to write one wish on their paper ornament that was put on the hallway bulletin board.  My wish is that the RLPA staff, students and parents have a restful, peaceful and healthy winter break.  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 holidays be merry and bright.


In spite of a rainy night we had a good turnout for our annual Dessert with Santa. Ms. Sumers and her leadership students did a wonderful job of decorating the cafeteria. Special thanks go to the following staff members for helping to serve at the event:  Mr. Crago-Schneider, Mr. Drake, Ms. France, Ms. Glover, Ms. Whalen and Ms. Her. The ASES team led by Mr. Baker was invaluable for their help as well. Our PTA groups and parents who helped include Mr. and Mrs. Stites, Ms. Harding and her son Chris, Ms. Worth and Ms. Davidson who contributed many hours to the event. We also want to thank former staff member Ms. Fernandez for lending a hand. 

  Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday:

This year the Martin Luther King Day holiday will take place on Monday, January 19th. All Twin Rivers District schools will be closed on that day. The district is also sponsoring an essay contest open to all students. The topic of the essay is “How has the Civil Rights Act of 1964 impacted the world you live in today?”

 Class Color Day:

Students are encouraged to wear the colors associated with their grade levels every Friday in January. Many new school shirts were ordered in these colors with designs made by a student at each grade level. The class colors this year are:  blue for 5th grade, orange for 6th grade, purple for 7th grade and green for 8th grade.


Furniture Donation from Safe Credit Union:

Teachers and school staff were pleasantly surprised by the arrival of new furniture. The furniture arrived in several truck loads and would have cost thousands of dollars to purchase brand new. Every classroom teacher chose a new desk chair and other furniture including file cabinets and bookshelves. Mr. Cunningham, our vice principal is now enjoying a new executive desk. The teachers also received a new refrigerator and microwave for their staff lounge. We would like to give a big “thanks” to Safe Credit Union and Mr. Joel Stuckey for making these donations possible.

Basketball Season is starting:

Coach Brevik, of the Lady Squires and Coach Drake, of the boys’ basketball team look forward to the beginning of an exciting new basketball season.  Basketball games will be played starting this week and will continue through the end of the month. Games will be played on Tuesdays and Thursdays and split between home and away games. Home games are played in our gym and there is a small entry fee. Refreshments will be sold by the school PTA.

PTA – Family Dinner Night:

The PTA is sponsoring a family dinner night on Thursday, January 15, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. In addition to pizza and salad available for purchase there will be other activities. The dinner will be taken place in the school cafeteria and all RLPA families are welcome to attend.

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

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.
