From the Principal

Happy Sunday RCE Parents-
Our students took their Progress Reports home this week.  These reports are meant to inform parents of the areas in which students are doing well and the areas that still need improvement.  Recommendations and comments are given for support.  But of course if you need additional clarification, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. 
We still need help with ensuring that our students are safe when arriving and leaving school.  Any parent that drops their child off at school should only do so through the use of the Front Parent Drive.  We had 2 students that were almost hit by a driver as they crossed the bus drive this week.  The driver was entering the back drive to drop off her children.  Please help us keep all students safe.
Thank you very much to Summers Halgren, Amy Stephens and Kari Oatman for organizing a wonderful lunch for our staff this past week.

Join Us For See You At The Pole
 Join us on Wednesday morning, September 26th, at 7 am to pray for Rummel Creek. We will pray for the staff, students and our community at large. Grab a donut while you're there!

Special Friends Day at the Book Fair

Special Friends Day at the RCE Book Fair will be the morning of Thursday, October 18th. This is a fun event where children can invite grandparents, aunts, uncles, or special friends (other than parents) to share in the experience of the Book Fair. A light breakfast will be provided and the Book Fair will be open for all to enjoy! Times are based on your child’s last name. A-M will begin at 8:30 and N-Z will begin at 9:30. Please use the link to electronically register your child and their special friend by October 12th. 

If possible, have your Special Friend stop by RCE at an earlier date to have them added to our check-in system. Everyone that is already in the system will have their sticker preprinted and be able to avoid the check in line. 

Sherwood Staff Appreciation Luncheon

We are so excited to host a staff appreciation luncheon for the amazing staff at Sherwood. Sherwood is our sister school and is located just a few miles from RCE north of the freeway. 
The Sherwood staff doesn't have monthly luncheon, so this will be a fun treat!

The luncheon will be held on Friday, October 12th. 

We will cater the food and provide homemade desserts.

Please see the attached SignUp Genius for volunteer opportunities. We are looking for monetary donations to cover the cost of food, decorations and paper goods as well as homemade desserts and people who are available to help set up/decorate, replenish food and clean up.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks so much,
Audra Marye and Allison Cattan

Volunteer Help Needed

Rummel Creek has so many amazing events for our kids but we can not make them happen with out your help.  We have all the info you need to get started but we just need you to be willing to step up and help! 

  1. Science Fair – Our amazing chair for this event is in her last year at RCE.  We are looking for someone that would be willing to “shadow” her this year in order to learn the ropes and take over for her next year. 
  2. Red Ribbon Week - The entire week is dedicated to awareness of a drug – free nation.  Last year the theme was that we “socked it to drugs”.  You would help coordinate the daily activities during this week. 
Please contact Jenn Terveen at if you have any interest in helping with any of these.


SBEF Making Our Schools Better
Making our Schools Better is what Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) does. SBEF provides a vehicle for private funding to enhance education for our 35,000 students.  All donations to SBEF – 100 percent! – remain in SBISD to fund programs that support our teachers and prepare our students for the future.
