Family Literacy Day at RIA!


We had a fantastic turnout for our Family Literacy Day today.  It was great to see so many family members reading with our students this morning and we would like to thank you for coming in and participating.  Improving literacy is a major goal at RIA and we want to encourage everyone to read at home with your children; this will be time well spent.  We are all one learning community working together to reach our goals!

A big thank you to Mrs. Porter for organizing this event and to  all our Primary and Elementary teachers for your help and support!

Welcome Back and Welcome to the Year 2014

We hope that everyone had a safe and happy holiday!  We are certainly looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and back to teaching and learning.  And, after the unexpected 3 extra days off, we hope that all our students are ready to get back to school as well.   We had a very busy Fall at RIA and it was a  great Fall.   We know it will be just as busy in the Winter and we hope that our entire school community is ready to help us as we continue to make this one of the best years ever at Random Island Academy!

happy new year
