June 19, 2019 Summer is here! Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Events are being added to the 2019-2020 school calendar every day! As always, please visit the school calendar for all upcoming events. School Website https://rles.smithfield-ps.org/o/raymond-c-laperche-elementary All students have made tremendous academic progress. Now, it is up to the families to keep those beautiful brains active all summer! Please visit our Summer Learning Guide for all of the expectations and suggestions for summer learning and for the verification form that needs to be submitted by September 13. All students who complete their summer learning are invited to an Outdoor Fun Festival in September! https://rles.smithfield-ps.org/o/raymond-c-laperche-elementary/page/summer-learning--10 Your child should have brought home his/her report card on the last day of school. Inside the report cards was a supply list for next year. We have removed many general items from the lists that the school will be providing. One area we hope to grow in as a school is that every student will come to school everyday with a reusable water bottle. We would love to reduce the use of single use water bottles and help preserve the earth! We are also offering a service where you can order the supply lists and it will be delivered to the school labeled with your child’s name. Please visit the LaPerche PTA facebook site for the details and to order your kit. They must be ordered by JUNE 30. Of course, you are always welcome to shop for the items with your child. You can find all supply lists here. https://rles.smithfield-ps.org/o/raymond-c-laperche-elementary/page/school-supplies--20 Please be reminded of the district calendar for 2019-2020. Since we have February and April vacation off from school as well as long weekends and Christmas break, we ask that you schedule all school vacations when school is not in session.

Did you know that at Fort Getty in Jamestown, RI there is geological proof that R.I. was once attached to Africa? Well it’s true! Fourth grade students at LaPerche also learned about all the biodiversity located on our shore line. Children had a blast collecting, sorting and learning about different kinds of marine life found in tide pools and rock formations on this awesome field trip!It was a cool day in many ways!! view image
Second graders stepped up to teach the first graders all about analog clocks and how to tell time. Then they challenged the first graders to “show” a specific time. Teaching opportunities are so important to help develop leadership skills. view image
Fresh water from the Blackstone River and salt water from Narragansett Bay combine together to form the area we visited today. The fifth graders had the opportunity to take a river cruise and test the water and air temperature as well as test the water clarity. On the shore, they scooped the stream to search for creatures and found fish and plankton. A great time was had by all. view image
The kindergarten students in Mrs. Friel’s class were excited to learn the new word and sound being introduced. Mrs. Friel shared it was a first grade sound and asked who was ready for it? Every hand was up immediately! Ask your k student about the new word (soon) and how many words they brainstormed that made the same sound. view image
