Message from the Principal

Greetings RCE Parents & Students-
The RCE staff and I have been working and planning together for last couple of weeks in preparation for the beginning of this new school year.  We are excited and can’t wait to see you at ‘Meet the Teacher’ on Wednesday, August 15th from 10:00-11:00.  This is a great time for you and your children to stop by to meet your teacher and see friends.  We are excited about seeing you and starting the year off on our learning journey of ‘Planting Seeds of Change’.
Nancy Harn
Principal @ Rummel Creek

Big Form is now Available

It's time to fill out the Big Form! This is your one-stop shop to join the PTA, order directories and yearbooks, purchase birthdays on the marquee, donate to the underwriting campaign and volunteer for a variety of school-wide opportunities. New this year, you can now pay your CLASS DUES via the Big Form. Please take a moment and complete your Big Form today. Deadline is Friday, September 14th.

After you fill out the Big Form please make sure to verify and save your info on the My School Anywhere page so that we may include your info in our directory.


Back-to-School To-Do's

1) All returning RCE parents need to complete 2018-19 forms online via Family Access. Please complete as soon as possible prior to the start of school, Thursday, August 16. If you do not have your log-in info, you will need to contact the RCE office. 


2) Register to volunteer at RCE. You must be an SBISD approved volunteer to attend field trips, assist in classrooms, help with class parties, etc. This MUST be done every year. 


3) Subscribe to our calendar. As events are updated it will automatically update them for you on your Google, Outlook, Apple, etc. calendars.


4) “Like" our Facebook page “Rummel Creek Elementary.” This page is used to alert of special dates and events and keep you informed of what’s going on at RCE!


5) Donate to the RCE business underwriting campaign (family underwriting is done via Big Form). 


6) If you know someone that’s not receiving the RCE Flash emails, please forward this to them and tell them to sign up for the RCE PTA Flash email list.



A Note About School Supplies

If you did not pre-purchase your school supplies in the spring then you may purchase them at a store of your choice. Please be sure that you shop using the RCE-specific lists created by our teachers which can be found on our website at  The pre-packaged SBISD supplies at area stores DO NOT match these lists.

For school supply questions, please contact Kelley Phillips ( or Maren Cooper (


New Sign-In Procedures for the School Year

Our badge printing system was updated over the summer and wiped clean.  Every person coming into the building will need to present their ID (driver’s license or state ID card) for scanning. If you don’t have that, a passport or other form of official ID will be accepted, but will have to be presented every time you enter the building because it will not be able to be scanned into our database.  This coming year, we are moving away from the sign-in sheets (unless the system is down), and requiring all visitors & volunteers to get a printed badge and to turn it in when they leave. 

Know someone new to RCE?


If you know a new RCE Roadrunner family who may not have received this email, please forward it to them.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!  It’s going to be a great year!

Jenn Terveen

RCE PTA President
