RMA School News - Jan 2020

Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and support Candy Cane Wars! We certainly had a good time and a great learning experience for many to get this up and running in a short amount of time. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Bennett for the awesome glass candy cane awards! They are currently in the process of getting more made to make up for Mr. K's inability to count!

@rmaeast students and parents: Don't forget to get into the appropriate BAND for the program(s) you are part of. It is a great way to stay in touch with students and instructors, know important dates, and even share pictures from class and events. It is also the quickest way to find out if classes have been canceled due to bad weather or road conditions! If you are having trouble getting in, talk with an instructor.
