Christmas Production
Dear RSPA-NW Families,  

Each year, the month of December symbolizes a season of cheerful giving and love. As we experience the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the academic expectations here, at RSPA-NW, remain constant. 

As we break for the holidays and look towards a new year, I am reflecting on the hard work and especially the progress our students are making. Each day our students are learning new and important information that they will need for the rest of their lives. I am appreciative too of the work ethic our staff is showing as we prepare our students for upcoming assessments and beyond.

When we return from the break we will be very hard at work to do all we can do to prepare our students to be successful and ready for promotions and STAAR Testing. Therefore, be sure you and your children enjoy this break with family and friends as they have most certainly earned it and will continue to earn it all school year long. I wish everyone in our Northwest Family a very Merry Christmas, a Joyful Holiday Season, and a very Happy New Year!

Thank you for all you do and for entrusting your child's schooling to us. We appreciate your investment, involvement and support.

Mr. Charles Russell
