September 2019
Dear RSPA-NW Families, 

Thank you for a wonderful start to the 2019-2020 school year! We have heard exciting details surround summer vacation; witnessed heartwarming reunions amongst classmates; and have celebrated the excitement a new school year brings. The character traits for the month of September are honesty and integrity. Students will spend this month understanding the meaning of those concepts, as well as learning how to apply them day-to-day. As I make my daily rounds, I have already observed our students providing help to others; exhibiting pride in their surroundings by cleaning up after themselves; and, actively participating in class. I am pleased with their progress and know that they will only improve!
