Principal's Message


Hello RMAE families,

I hope everyone had a great break with family doing whatever makes you happy!  The New Year is off to a great start for our RMAE community.  Every five years, we submit a proposal to have our Charter renewed.  This provides us with an opportunity to showcase our wonderful community and is a thorough review of all aspects of our school.  Last night, the Jeffco School Board approved our charter renewal!    A special shout out to Jim Good - Board President, Gill Gomez – current Board member and past Treasurer, Trevor Fontaine - parent and technology committee member, and Anna Grose - 2nd grade teacher.  They did a fantastic job standing before the Jeffco Board and describing our school community.  
I hope everyone has a warm, safe, and fun weekend!


Your Proud Principal,       

Dr. Ann Hudson
