September RAP

Welcome back to the  Let’s RAP Program.  We started the school year off with a big bang.  Out of 639 students, 608 students did their RAP with only 31 not participating.  Parents, did your child do his/her RAP?  Want to give a big shout out to the students and teachers who had 100% participation.  Awesome Job!!   We can get 100% participation from each class since there are only a few who did not participate.  What are the reasons?  I lost my paper, I did not get a signature, I forgot to do it.

100% Participation:

  • Gr. PS, Rm. K5 (Ms. Wong)
  • Gr. K:  Rm. K1 (Mrs. Teruya); Rm. K2 (Mrs. Hale); Rm. K3 (Ms. Ahmed); Rm. K4 (Mrs. Muraoka) – 100% Grade Participation
