November just seemed to fly by this year at RBES. We started the month with our Annual Flu Clinic. A huge thanks to Nurse Jeannie for all of her hard work to make this available to our community.
On the 9th, we had our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. The cafeteria ladies really outdid themselves this year. They fed over 400 parents this year.
On the 10th, we held a Veteran's day assembly. Rose Bud City Council Member, Nick Cartwright spoke about his efforts to honor veterans with the Rose Bud Veteran Memorial at the city park. Our own RBHS ROTC presented the flag for us. And our 2017-2018 Student Council Members were announced.
Student Council members are elected from each homeroom in both 5th and 6th grades. They are sponsored by myself and my awesome Librarian, Amanda Tharp and our new and equally awesome Music Teacher, Mrs. Monique Davis.
Student Council is one of the small groups that I meet with each month, as well as a student service project. We hold meetings in a formal setting for students to experience the professionalism for how meeting should be conducted. These students are expected to be leaders in our school and have the conduct and exceptionalism in their classrooms to demonstrate this. They also understand that they are the voice of their peers. They meet with our principal, Mrs. Kirkpatrick, to discuss student issues and concerns. They also raise money for various needs they vote to help with around our school.
