Rancho Santa Fe School/Education Foundation to hold ‘Back-To-School Nights’


The Rancho Santa Fe School District and the RSF Education Foundation will host ‘‘Back-To-School Nights’’ as follows: Sept. 4 (Gr. 7-8), Sept. 5 (Gr. K-2), Sept. 11 (Gr. 3-6).

For grades K-6, parents will begin the evening in the Performing Arts Center at 6 p.m. with an overview presentation from Kim Pinkerton, the K-6 principal. At 6:30 p.m., parents will then proceed to their child’s classroom for a teacher presentation on the curriculum and areas of focus the students will be studying throughout the year. The Education Foundation will present a new video that updates parents on important changes to the school’s funding from the County and State, and underscores how parental support is no longer a “nice to have” but a “need to have” in order to maintain the world-class education at R. Roger Rowe. Room parents will provide information regarding important programs, as well as classroom volunteer sign up sheets, and access to the online volunteer site for school and Foundation events. The evening will end at 7:20 p.m. There will only be one session per evening.

For grades 7-8, parents will begin their evening at 6:15 p.m. in their child’s period 1 class and then move to the Performing Arts Center to attend the overview program after Period 3 (7:15 p.m.). Much like the K-6 meeting, parents will receive important information regarding new programs, new staff, and the benefits of supporting the Education Foundation.
