Thanksgiving Fall Feast 2014



December 4, 2014  

Dear Rio Linda Preparatory Academy Families:

November is the month to reflect on all our blessings.  Each of your children is a blessing to the RLPA staff.  We are a family that cares and is vested in your child’s academic future.  We thank you for sending us your children; may your Thanksgiving Day and week be blessed.  

The Great Pumpkin Raffle:

Joseph W. won the pumpkin raffle and rumor has it that his family will enjoy many pumpkin pies. Congratulations!

Stella article in Natomas Magazine:

Natomas Magazine has an extensive article about the recent visit to RLPA of Stella the Solar Car. As a follow up to the visit, students in Project Lead the Way classes will have an opportunity to do a Skype video conference with Stella designers at the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. You can read the article in Natomas Magazine by entering this link below:

Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying Assembly:

U.S. Dept. of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation, Scott A. H. Schofield, and Special Agent presented about the importance of Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying Assembly on November 14. Students, staff and parents learned some valuable information on how to surf the web more safely.

Parent Teacher Conferences in November:  

Thank you to the parents/guardians that attended parent/teacher conferences.  Please remember that you can meet with the teacher throughout the school year.  If you would like to meet with your child’s teacher and you did not get invited Nov. 20 and 21st, please call the teacher or counselor to schedule a conference. You will be contacted by classroom teachers to set up a meeting time. If you are unable to come to your appointment, teachers will be happy to do a conference with you by phone or to meet in person at an arranged time during the school week.

Communication between you and the teacher is critical to your child's success. Inform teachers how they can communicate with you.  You can use School Loop, student agendas, e-mail, texting, or the good old fashion phone call.  Please inform the office if you get a new phone number.  We need to be able to reach you in case of an emergency and when I send calls to all parents about school activities or other.

Dessert with Santa:

Our annual Dessert with Santa will take place on December 11th from 5:30-7:30PM. There will be desserts, hot drinks, music, crafts, and of course, Santa will be making an appearance. Every year this is one of our best family events of the school year.

School Wide Kendama Ban


Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.

New Online Webstore!
