What is happening at Robert Gray?

Robert Gray Families:
Please remember that only Kindergarten and First grade students are allowed to wear costumes to school. All grades may bring their costumes to change into before the designated time. We ask that you make sure all costumes are easy for children to put on/take off and appropriate for school. For example no theme or character of a violent nature should be represented, for safety reasons this includes weapons, fake blood, masks and face paint/make-up that could be accessories to a costume.

5th Graders can earn a bike!
Once again Bud Clary is sponsoring a bike give-away for each 5th grader that has perfect attendance for the entire year! That means no tardies, no excused or unexcused absences, no missed class time at all. This includes not leaving early after the winter pro-gram. If you are in 5th grade this is something to work towards!
Points of Pride
Reasons to be proud of Longview Public Schools. See this brouchure that points out at least 21 reasons.
Smarter Balanced Assessment System-
This year, students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessments in English/Language Arts and Math. This is the first year our students will participate in these assessments that are aligned to the Common Core standards.
To get information that will help you understand this assessment system, log on to Smarterbalanced.org.
RGE teachers will be working with students throughout the year to give them experience with the content, the process and the format of these tests that will be taken online in the spring.

Another reason for using this picture is so show you how well the students pay attention to the presentation as they sit with their classmates. Elementary schools are one of the few places the newest get the best seats in the house!
