Let’s Talk!!!!

Our plan for this school year is to continue providing our students with a safe, secure and nurturing environment.  We are striving to provide an environment that is conducive to student achievement and growth.  We have a responsibility to furnish such an environment to the students of Ruleville Central Elementary School.

The five B’s are:


  • Be on time. Parents, this one needs your support.
  • Be Polite.
  • Be Prepared.
  • Be Productive.
  • Be on you BEST, BEST Behavior! 

We are excited about the possibilities of this school year and we trust that parents will continue to provide support to help us remain SUCCESSFUL in all our efforts. 

Educationally yours,

Latasha Carroll, Principal

Gratitude is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as ‘the state of being grateful, thankfulness’. Many people fail to understand how gratitude can change a life and alter one’s perception for the good. A life without gratitude is often an unhappy, unfilled life. Putting a little gratitude in your daily life is a first-step to achieving many of your hopes, your dreams, and your goals. Show Gratitude Quietly. Don’t turn gratitude into a promotional or motivational tool.

Express your thanks in quiet ways: a thought, a prayer, a one-on-one word, a note of appreciation. Give people gifts of thanks that aren’t bought at shops: a bit of your time, a sacrifice, something valuable to you. Always Replace the 3 C’s With the 3 A’s. If you work others and sometimes feel the need to use one of the 3 C’s – complaining, condemning, and criticizing – replace them with the 3 A’s of Accepting, Acknowledging, and Appreciating. Accept people for who they are; acknowledge them for what they do; and appreciate them for just being around. The thing with gratitude is that it actually helps you way more than the person you’re showing gratitude towards. When you feel thankful, grateful, and content in your own life and in your own experiences then you will find that want less. You’ll find that you’re actually more satisfied with where you are and with what you already have in life.

RCES Library News!  Happy Reading! It has been an exciting month in the library. Students have learned how to tell the difference between a Fiction and Nonfiction book. Fiction books are make believe stories with talking animals and make believe characters whereas, nonfiction books are real books that provide true facts. Also, Kindergarten students were able to identify the different parts of a book such as author, illustrator, spine, front cover, back cover, and title page. Every week students come into the library to check out different kind of books that meet that their reading pleasure. As always, encourage your child to read 20 minutes daily and they will become a successful student. Thanks for your support! We are winning!
