We’re here until 7:30. Please come grab belongings. 😁
Dear RPTLE Families~ Tomorrow night from 6- 7:30 pm, we'll be available for a final time to allow you to pick up your child's belongings from school. If your child ordered a yearbook, this would also be a time to collect. Many learners have bags with belonging from their classrooms, desks, cubbies and lockers. You'd be surprised at all of the treasures that are in their bags! Pull up at the end of the school building, by the playground and someone will help you. You won't even have to leave your car and it will only take a moment. Any items not picked up will be stored in a classroom until the Fall. Hoping that all of the bags will be safe with their child by the end of the evening tomorrow.
Final Give and Get on Monday the 15th from 6-7:30 pm. Drive up to the playground area and look for the open window. That’s where we’ll be! 🤓Fourth graders that ordered a year book may pick them up at this time.
Reminder that Get Back/Give Back is tomorrow from 9-2 and Friday 9- 12. If those times won’t work, please call us at 719-3190. See you tomorrow!

Hi families and friends, Our school is participating in a creative fundraiser with Art to Remember that allows you to purchase keepsake products customized with your child's art. There are over 50 products and many are less than $15. These make great gifts and a percentage of every purchase goes right back to our school. The exciting part is that you can select any piece of artwork from home! You can use art from e-learning, choose a piece from earlier in the year, or create something new. Just click on the link below, search for your child’s name, and upload the piece of artwork you selected. You can upload additional pieces and save them in a digital family gallery. Have fun creating and shopping! https://arttoremember.com/school/vtyjlr (Twin Lake Elem) All orders would be ONLINE ONLY and SHIP TO HOME (shipping charges apply). -- That's it. Thanks so very much for all you do today and everyday to support your students and the arts. Robin Civis Elementary Art Teacher Reeths-Puffer Public Schools firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Families~ As we wrap up our first official week of distance learning, a couple of things that your RPTLE team would like for you to remember. We are offering learning opportunities that may, or may not be differentiated to meet your family's needs at this time. While we can differentiate instruction in the classroom, we have know way of knowing if what we are providing is too little, or too much for your learner. What we are providing are opportunities, not expectations. Do what you can. Please know that we care about your well being more than we care about an assignment being completed. We are counting on you to differentiate at home, based on what works for you, which could change from day to day and week to week. We would just like to know that your family is safe. Take care of you first and foremost.
Important! Please follow the link below to complete a survey that will help us determine who still needs a Chromebook for their child's distance learning program. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfnIt_6h8EVgpfy40ohTN89K4fJeR-I1rR_IHQn31N2tbm7Kw/viewform
Forms for Kindergarten Round-Up may be found on our district's website. Schools will not be hosting in the traditional way this school year. More information will be forthcoming on how your child's school will be collecting forms. Please don't worry about this. Be safe!
RPTLE Families~ We're thinking about you! If your family needs help, or direction for support during this challenging time, please reach out to Mrs. Schmitt. Her email address is email@example.com. Your child's teacher is another resource. We may be able to help.
Girls on the Run families, please see the message below. What's Next for your Girls? Shoes- We realize not all of your girls have received their shoes as either they are still at school or they are in the second order. When it is safe to do so, we would ask that Coaches and/or Site Liaisons work with the school to allow girls to pick up their GOTR shoes. For girls that have shoes in the second order, they will STILL be receiving shoes and we will be in touch with sites once shoes come in and we will work with you to get girls their shoes. Refunds- We will be sending information to families regarding refund options. Because of costs that we have already incurred this season, not all families will be eligible for a refund depending on the amount they paid this season. Feel free to forward any questions families have to us. GOTR at Home- We will continue to stay in touch with families regarding GOTR at Home lessons and are looking into a virtual 5k that we can do with girls in Spring/Summer. GOTR at Home is not meant to be a substitute for the GOTR season, but a way for us to continue to support and connect with our girls. We know not all families will engage with this content, but are committed to resourcing our families as we navigate this tricky time.
