Comprehensive Needs Assessment Survey


I appreciate all of your efforts in helping us to educate your children. Education is a partnership between home and school and we must work together in order to be successful. We are now wrapping up our 3rd Nine Weeks. We will begin 3rd nine weeks testing the week of March 4th. Please make sure that your child is at school daily, get plenty of rest and report to school on time to eat breakfast. Learning can’t take place if students are not at school.

Great things are going on at RCES and our doors are always open to be of assistance to you. Thank you for allowing us to teach your children.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings kids the books they want to read. We'll receive a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level, and all purchases benefit our school! Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits.

Please come to our book fair and help shape your child's reading habits.  Click → RULEVILLE CENTRAL ELEM SCHOOL Book Fair  for more information!


 Connection is Key

It might seem like a never-ending battle. Figuring out how to respond to the whining, tantrums, tears, and what can feel like deliberate disrespect of your parenting wishes.

Often times, a child who is acting out by screaming or hitting is trying to communicate that something doesn’t feel right. They might feel disconnected and need something from you. This is why responding in anger, yelling, grounding, or timeout might not work the way you had hoped, especially in the long-term; it doesn’t give them what they need.

Offering connection can open up the door for communication about their feelings, which can lead to more understanding for both of you. When the connection has been made, it will be easier to go over the rules again, setting clear limits and consequences. Remember, a child who feels connected to you has less of a need to act out because their needs are met.


Ideas for Connecting

Every child and parent craves and responds to connection in different ways, so it’s important to find what works for your family.

• Schedule a regular hang out time (play a game, read a book, go to the park, something you both enjoy).

• Come up with a special goodbye ritual (handshake, song, certain words, etc).

• Offer a hug, high five, fist bump, something that requires touch!

• Play in their world - get down to their level, use their toys with them, get silly, use your imagination!

• Share your favorite game, toy, or movie from when you were a kid.

• Ask about their day and just listen.

• Recognize their feelings and be with them while they are sad/angry/scared/excited.
