May 2015 Newsletter

May 7, 2015


Dear Rio Linda Preparatory Academy Families:


Thank You Students and Parents: We had a tremendous turn out for the Second Trimester Award Presentation last month. So many people showed up we ran out of chairs and had to open cafeteria tables for more seating. It is gratifying to see the pride in parents’ faces as students were called to the stage to receive their certificates. In turn each recipient gave a long stem rose to their families to thank them for their support in making their success possible. Also thanks to teachers and school staff who helped with the ceremony.

Civics Award Plaque Presentation:

Superior Judge Brown will present RLPA with a Civic Learning Award on Friday, May 29, 2015, in the morning.  In addition, as a Civic Learning Award recipient, our school will be invited to join State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, at the regional 2015 California School Recognition Program event. 

ASES Parent Academy 

ASES, the after school program at RLPA will be hosting an 8 session parent workshop starting on Monday, May 4, twice a week every week in May. Through these 8 sessions, parents will gain the knowledge and skills to help their children navigate through the education system by understanding Common Core, understanding the steps of applying for college, and using the Career Pillars program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shawn Baker at 916-267-1258 or email at

Second month of state testing

At the end of April students in the 7th grade finished the first round of on-line state testing called Smarter Balanced. Students had the opportunity to take a challenging English and math test employing 21st century skills. Testing continues this month with 8th grade testing for two weeks followed by students in grades 5 and 6 who will finish Smarter Balanced testing by the end of the month. The results of Smarter Balanced testing will be shared with parents later this year. The information the school gets from this test will help us plan better instruction for next year.

School Dress Code:

Parents, please help us to maintain our school dress code. As the weather gets warmer students need to be more conscious about what is and is not acceptable to wear at school. Students cannot wear shorts that are too short and cannot wear t-shirts with inappropriate messages on them. If you have any questions about the dress code, you may speak with our Vice Principal, Mr. Cunningham, at (916) 566-2720, ext. 66095.

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.
