May 2018



April and May always seem to fly by; perhaps this is because we are looking ahead to graduation, end of school activities, or just the anticipation of fun in the sun.

As you read through the following pages, please take notice of the calendar items listed as you may want to be a part of things that are happening at the RLC. Between PARADE Players productions, RLC graduation ceremonies, and other events in the District, there are plenty of great things to do.

Victor Hugo (one of my favorite authors) once said, "An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an invasion of ideas." We continue to work with our students to give them knowledge and to teach them to think and generate ideas about what they learn and know. Generating new ideas is how we continue to contribute to society and the world, so keep thinking and sharing deep thoughts.

Proud to be a Raven!

Ways to show our appreciation:


1. One of their favorite ways to be thanked is by having food brought in each day of the week. Many of you have participated in the past and we thank you for that. If you are willing to help, please go to the link below to see where you can sign up.  


2. We are looking to update the artwork in the teacher's bathrooms. Currently, we have framed student art and photography, and would like to refresh the walls with new student art that is framed and ready to hang. If anyone is willing to donate some art for a couple of years, they can leave it at the front desk with Kris.


3. This is a good time to show your family's appreciation with a handwritten note or card that can be delivered directly to your teacher anytime through-out that week.


Thank you in advance for your support of our amazing teaching staff!

Nurse's Notes



With Summer break coming soon, now is a great time for making appointments with your healthcare provider for well-child checks/physicals and vaccinations, if needed.


All 6th grade students are required to receive a Tdap booster.  This vaccination is to protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.  There has been a recent rise in pertussis (whooping cough) cases in King County, making this an important booster to receive.  If your child is 11 years old and it has been five years or more since their last tetanus-containing vaccine, please call to schedule this vaccination.  If other members of your family have not had this vaccination within the past five years, ask your health care provider if they should also receive this vaccination.

When vaccinations are received, please send a copy of the vaccination dates to the school your child currently attends.

If your child is exempt from receiving immunizations, state law requires an exemption form to be co-signed by your health sare provider for school registration.  You may request a copy of this form from your child's school.


Complete immunization records or a signed exemption form are required by Washington State law for school attendance.


You can access your student's immunization record at




If your student has an IHP on file at the school, paperwork will be sent home in June. Please update and have your healthcare provider sign it, as well as fill out and sign the Medication Authorization Form if medication will be needed at school next year.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:


Kristin Uselman, RN

















Thank you for sharing your children with us!
