Rummel Creek Parents

Each week working with students can be busy, exciting and sometimes stressful.  This past week we continued to support students and our community as we shared the news of the loss of our beloved driver of Bus 89.  Marlene Moore passed away last Thursday due to a medical emergency.  She was a dedicated employee in SBISD for 27 years.  Ms. Moore will be greatly missed.  When events like this occur, we are fortunate to have our District System of Care Support Team that supports our community and students.  RCE is also blessed to have an outstanding counselor, Taylor Suszko, who is here to support students and parents as specific needs arise that may need assistance.  As always, our entire staff stands ready to help any student with special situations, needs and concerns. 

On a Separate Note -
This past Thursday, our RCE Fifth grade moms treated our entire staff to a Fabulous Luncheon with Grub Burgers, dips, drinks and yummy desserts.  They even gave us a chance to win a door prize.  This luncheon was enjoyed by the entire staff and everyone left feeling appreciated with well fed.  Thanks to the following generous hostesses for this lovely luncheon.
