We need your help….

If you have an incoming kinder  student (child turning 5 by Sept 1), or know of a neighbor or friend please let them know that it is time to attend Kindergarten Round-up and register your incoming student.

Please bring:

  • Immunization record,

  • Birth certificate

We really hope if you have an incoming student that you attend, to register, check out the bus, meet teachers, and visit classrooms.  This event is very important to help build relationships and help with nerves/emotions.  We hope you make it to Kindergarten Round-up!


A Message from your Library:

Hello Rural Dell parents. I can't believe that it is March already. I need your help. We have quite a few overdue books. When your student checks out a book they have two weeks before it is overdue. We really want to avoid having an overdue book. Many times these are popular books that other students have been waiting for. If a book is damaged, please send it back. We have special tools to fix them. If the book is lost, let the library know. You will need to reimburse the library so we can purchase a replacement. Please ask them about their library books. Help them keep them in a safe place away from dogs, small children, food, keeping them in the car, etc. Thank you all for your assistance.


Rural Dell Bingo Night will be on Friday, April 20, 2018! This is our largest and most successful fundraiser of the year. We can’t do it without you. We really need your help filling these baskets!!!! If you are not a shopper, or are not sure what to donate, gift cards or cash donations are always welcome.

The PTC will not be supplementing baskets this year and will do our best with the donations that we receive.
