Our Library is Back in Business!  We would like to thank our dedicated library volunteers for the hundreds of hours spent completing the book cataloguing and preparing our Library for student/classroom use.  

This week, many classes visited the library at their scheduled times.  Students received a tour and signed codes of conduct.  For your awareness, that code of conduct is attached. (If your child was absent on library day, please have them sign and return it.)  Students can begin borrowing books next week.  Classroom librarians are still needed for 1st, 4th-Gordon, and 5th grades!  If you would like to volunteer for your classroom's designated time, contact your classroom coordinator.  Consider splitting the job with another parent or two from your child's classroom for a lighter load!  There are also flexible hour volunteer opportunities, on the library maintenance team, that will continue throughout the year.  To help with that effort, contact library coordinator Jamie Richards at

Special library note:  Please do NOT drop off any book donations until summer break begins.  Please do not make any multimedia (non-book) donations to the RMAE library.  Thank you for your patience with our parent-staffed team!
