As we prepare for another year of learning, we ask our families and community to join us in ensuring our students attend and remain at school each day. Missing 2 days of instructional time each month means that students miss out on 10% of the learning opportunities presented to them. Our faculties and staff are ready to welcome our students to #schooleveryday.

Also, there is NOTHING quite like the sound of a group of 100 little kids singing and enjoying making music together! Over my eleven years of teaching at RPS, I have had so many musical moments that moved me to tears. I hope my students will always remember singing and making music with "Ms. Rachel" and will continue to love making music throughout their school careers and lives.” We are #LauderdaleProud of Rachel’s dedication to our students and community!
