What We've Been Up To!

RBES PTA Hard at Work

Send Us Your Photos!

Are you a shutterbug? A photographer? A whiz at the social media selfie game? We are looking for RBES to send in photos that display what virtual learning is like. We want to see the pledge of allegiance, PE class outfits, studious students, school lunch pickups and much more!

Trunk or Treat is Back @ RBES

Something frightfully fun is around the corner…
Save the Date for the return of Trunk or Treat at RBES!
Friday, October 29th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Show up and show out in your most ghoulish ghost or prettiest princess costumes and enjoy safe, friendly Halloween fun for the whole family.
Families make sure to sign up https://signup.com/go/XoefacO to decorate your trunk.
The more trunks the more fun our RBES students get to have!
