Mrs. Potter from the Meridian Garden Club came in to read 'The Frightened Frog' to our 5th grade during their regular library time on Thursday April 27th. It is an Environmental Tale to immerse young people in nature and to help them recognize the needs and to provide them with alternate solutions they understand.It is written by Brenda Moore and Jean Ohlmann and illustrated by Emily Lackey.


Guest Reader Monica Fox, daughter of Michigan author Dottie Withrow, came to Ralya Elementary to read to the 2nd and 3rd grade classes this week.
Plain Daisy Jane is a true story about being accepted, understood, and cared about whether you are adults or children. Often much more so for those who have been adopted. Four Winds Chelsea Blue is also a true story about choices and consequences. Adding a dimension that teaches individual and family values.

Where's Waldo?

Baby Ducks

Our baby ducks have hatched. Can you find them in this picture!? There are 13 ducklings!


DRESS FOR THE WEATHER – A simple rule to remember is: 50 – 60 degrees, wear long sleeves - Below 50 degrees, wear a jacket! There are lots of kids who have the same colored snow pants, jackets and boots!

It’s a great idea to put a student’s name somewhere on the clothing item! Thanks

Summer Tutors

If you are interested in having your child receive extra help during the summer weeks, a tutoring list is available in the School office or on the Ralya website.

 



Visiting School


Parents, community members and other interested people are welcome to visit our schools. Prior notification to the teacher is helpful but not necessary. Visitors or volunteers are expected to check in at the school office, sign-in, and wear a visitor badge.

Parents volunteering in the classroom or attending field trips are requested to leave other children at home as this generally causes undue disruption to the normal classroom routine.  If you are volunteering in the classroom or on a field trip, you will need to fill out a Background History Consent Form. These can be returned to the Ralya Office or to the Administration Building. Forms are available by clicking on the link below.



Parent / Athlete Concussion Information Sheet

Please read through the information, sign and return to your student's teacher if you haven’t done so already. This is a new state requirement to ensure that both the parent and the school understand the significance of concussions. If you ever suspect that your child has had a concussion, it is important that you seek medical attention and get clearance from the doctor before returning to school.



Haslett District Volunteers

There are many ways in which you can make a difference in the lives of our students. Volunteer opportunities exist in the classrooms working directly with teachers and students, chaperoning field trips, assisting at recess or at lunch time, or helping out at a PTO function, booster activities, or extracurricular event. Volunteering can be very rewarding – which is why many of our volunteers return year after year.  If you plan to volunteer this year, please return the volunteer form.
