Virtual Author-In-Residence Visit with Peter Brown

RPDS was thrilled to have a virtual visit with Mr. Peter Brown, our Author in Residence for this school year!

Author and illustrator of over a dozen books, Mr. Brown’s work have been recognized in a variety of prestigious ways. In 2013, he received a Caldecott Honor Award for his illustration of the book Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds.

Octoberfest Reimagined

Every October RPDS celebrates Octoberfest, an evening where we can come together as a school community for games, food, and fellowship. While we weren’t able to have Octoberfest in its traditional form this year due to COVID-19, we had the best and most beautiful day celebrating the season with our students with Octoberfest Reimagined! With Octoberfest Reimagined we incorporated arm painting, field games, pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo, and ice cream into the school day. It was an amazing day!

Celebrating Grandparents' & Special Friends' Day in a COVID Safe Way

Every October RPDS looks forward to our annual Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day. Due to COVID-19 this day had to be modified from years past, however, it was still a special day celebrating how important grandparents and special friends are to the RPDS community!

Welcome Back Faculty & Staff!

This morning we had our first faculty & staff meeting for the 2020-2021 school year and we were reminded just how special the RPDS community is! We are blessed with such a talented and dedicated team (some not pictured) that is eager to provide an amazing school year for our students and families! We can't wait to welcome YOU back next week!

Alumni Give a Helping Hand

We want to give a BIG thank you to the 18 teenagers who pitched in to help assemble 400 desk dividers last week! Of those 18 teens, 13 were RPDS alumni eager to help get campus ready for a safe & successful new school year!
