Monday, October 14th will be a Day 2
Thank you to the families that were able to make it to Bogey’s Sports Park on Thursday. My family enjoyed the mini-golf and batting cages. Your visit helped fund our PTA!
This week is a busy one! All we long different classes will be visiting the Book Fair. Most students visited the library on Friday to make their shopping lists. Classes will then visit again throughout this week to make purchases. You can send a check (made out to RES) or cash for the specific no-tax prices, however, the digital wallet option is a safe and easy way to access a debit account that you control. The book fair has special open times outside of the classroom visits including Monday night for ESL families, Thursday evening (5:30-7:30 pm) for Grandparents night, and all day Friday during the Roadrunner Warrior Dash event.
On Monday, 2nd grade goes to Henricus Park. We are asking that chaperones check-in through the office and report to the cafeteria until the teachers are ready to receive you. On Tuesday we have makeup pictures for Lifetouch. This is for missed pictures, or if you were unhappy with the original. Make sure you bring that first batch with you that day if wanting a new picture. On Wednesday we are inviting everyone to wear cozy pajamas in celebration of our Arctic Book Fair theme. Unfortunately, the Kindergartners will not be able to participate due to their rescheduled field trip to Carter Mountain. On Thursday our PreK students head to Lloyd Family Farm. That night the book fair will open at 5:30 pm. We will then have a 6:30 pm PTA meeting. Afterward we are encouraging students to bring grandparents or other special family and friends to visit their classroom and book fair. We scheduled the Roadrunner Warrior Dash event for the very next day in case the family is traveling from far away for both events. The best time for families to visit the Warrior event is during a grade level’s Encore time. Check-in for a visitor sticker in the front office and head down the hallway and out the back door to the playground.

And a few final announcements:
- PreK, Kindergarten, and 3rd-grade families: Nurse Molly is required by the state to do specific medical screenings on students. We sent home permission forms two weeks ago to allow Medarva to help her with the screenings. Please send these permission forms back this week otherwise they are not allowed to help her with your child’s required screening.
- Want to know where your child’s bus is located to help with morning and afternoon arrival time? Call the Transportation office to get set up with a Viafy smartphone account. This app lets you see your child’s bus location when it gets within three miles of your home. Call 804.556.5361 to get setup. Transportation is also looking for bus drivers. The county will train you! Ask them about it when you call for your Viafy information.
- Our Superintendent wanted to make sure you know about a few opportunities to provide input for Goochland and Goochland Schools. One online article is about strategic plan public input sessions. You are welcome to go to any of them, but we will host one at Randolph on Wednesday, November 6th. Another opportunity is coming this Saturday, October 12th at 10 am at the Goochland Recreation Center. It’s called Community Conversations and will be centering discussion around strengthening inclusive, caring, and safe learning environments.
