Principal's Message

Hello Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to school!  If you are new to Rio I would like to welcome you to the Rio Family and look forward to partnering with you.  We have a lot of exciting things going on at Rio this year and I want to take the time to make you aware of many of them. Our first day of school is Tuesday, 8/11/2015.


First  things first: this year instead of Back to School Night we will be holding Orientation. Orientation is scheduled for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten on 8/5/2015 at 9:00 AM. We will begin in the multipurpose room. Also on 8/5/2015 we will have first grade Orientation. First grade Orientation will begin at 1:00 in the multipurpose room. Please join us for these two special orientations with your child so they can begin to learn the routine for their classrooms for the upcoming school year (please bring only your child who will be attending this grade level as we have very limited space and supplies are purchased based on the count of parent(s) and student only.
Orientation for grades 2-8 will be held on Monday, 8/10/2015 from 1:30-4:00 and if you are a Step Up parent and your child was invited to attend this school year (you would have been notified at the end of last year) your Orientation for Step Up is on 8/10/2015 at 5:30 PM in the cafeteria.  In order to accommodate children and parents the 1:30 Orientation will begin in the center court area right past the multipurpose room, please come to this meeting as we have important information to share with you. Children in 7th and 8th grade may attend without a parent, however, we strongly encourage parents to attend this Orientation as well.
On 8/10/2015 we will do 2 sessions for our parents with children in more than one grade level 1:30-3:00 and 3:00-4:00. PTA will be available both days for you to sign up to be a member of PTA (Parent Teacher Association). Our PTA works hard to provide extra things for your child(ren) so we encourage you to be a member in this important partnership.
