    Roy Cloud Day at the Legends Baseball Game- Last Saturday, about 100 excited fans from Roy Cloud attended the Menlo Park Legends baseball game. It was fun to see our students participate in the mid-inning games, escort players out before the game and hear Hali sing the National Anthem.

    Message from Mrs. Stringfield


    The school year is winding down, however, I wanted to share with you a few important things that have been going on this month at school! Lunch Bunch and Middle School Lunch Re-mix ended this month! It was truly such an honor to have lunch with 667 of our Roy Cloud Students this year! I had lots of fun meeting with the kids and reading stories, playing games, talking about the school year, and most importantly having fun and laughing together during these lunch meetings! Thank you to the staff for always distributing the lunch invites and thank yous to the students for making this a highlight of my school year! My monthly classroom lessons are also winding down. This year has just flown by so as a class, we brainstormed all of our favorite things we will remember about this year. The younger grades wrote their memories on airplanes and decorated the airplanes. Some of my favorite memories I read from the student's airplanes said, "Meeting my teacher, Mrs. Parodi," "Mrs. Sloan reading, Matilda," "Lessons with Mrs. Stringfied." Read about some of their memories on the Counselor's bulletin board. The older grades created, "How to Survive" books. They came up with tips to pass along to the new incoming grades. For example, Mrs. Mendez's class shared with the new incoming 3rd graders to "Love my best teacher, her name is Mrs. Mendez and she is nice." Or, "Care for your friends when they get hurt, or are sad."  These are just a few excerpts from their How to Survive 3rd grade book that we created this month! This has been a great year! Happy Summer, Mrs. Stringfield

    Volunteer Tea - Would love ALL of our volunteers here at Roy Cloud! Whether you help in the classroom, drive on field trips, or plan events - no job is too small, and we would like to honor you!

    A big THANK YOU to all of our amazing volunteers (parents, students and teachers) for sharing their time and talent for the Father Daughter Dance last Friday. The smiles and laughter of the girls and dads in attendance made the effort more than worth it! This special evening would not have been possible without the combined effort of everyone involved and we want you to know how much we appreciate you! As in years past, we had such a great response for tickets, that unfortunately, we were not able to accommodate everyone who responded after the rsvp deadline. However, we hope that this fun tradition continues and that those who couldn't attend will be able to next year. If you are interested in getting involved in planning for next year, please let us know as we are looking for people to take over as chairpersons for the event. - Nancy Mein and Alicia Truby

    Father/Daughter Dance - May 1st

    Father Daughter Dance Flyer  

    The Father Daughter dance is just a couple of days away and we really need your help! Our volunteer list still has a lot of open spaces and we rely on everyone to help make this a special night for our girls. This is not a fund-raiser event and all money goes towards making the dance fantastic (DJ, photo booths, decorations, games, etc). The areas where we really need the most help are people to work the game booths from 6:30-7:30 and help with the photo walls. We promise that if you show up to help you will have a great time! However, if you can't work the night of the dance, please consider donating items instead (food, prizes, etc). Please take a look at the list and see where you contribute: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4dabab2eab9-under

    Thanks so much! Alicia Truby & Nancy Mein

    Mom's Night Out This Friday, May 1st!

Grab your mom friends and cruise on up to Canada College and have a little party of your own at the Benefit for a Brighter Future (BBF). BBF is a really fun event with great food, a hosted bar, and a chance to mingle with the education leaders of Redwood City. This year, the event features a student guest speaker from Hoover School and a fun "Tech Deck" in which educational technology programs, like the Coding Clubs, will be showcased by students from the district. It's always a great party, with a lively crowd and great food and drink. And of course, the event raises money to support programs funded by the Redwood City Education Foundation. Don't be left out! Form a posse and have some fun of your own! Tickets are going fast, so sign up now! www.rcefBBF.org

    From our Counselor - Juli Stringfield

    Happy Earth Day 2015! The character trait for the month of April is to be Resourceful. I enjoyed teaching 17 classroom lessons this month and listening to students share ways in which they can be resourceful, in order to protect our Earth. For grades 3-5, we completed an art project and wrote a statement, sharing their promise to the earth. You can see these projects displayed in some of the 3-5th grade classrooms, as well as in the Fifth Grade hallway, or even on my "Counselor's Corner" bulletin board, located in the hallway adjacent to the Staff lounge!!

    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, Heart & Lung Day - 5th Grade hosted Heart & Lung Day celebrating the circulatory and respiratory systems in March. While this day was hosted a month ago, the hands-on learning experiences left an everlasting impression that was evident when I spoke with Logan L. and Kylie K. Here are just a few of the things that they learned and activities they participated in:

    • A sheep's heart is one of the most similar animal hearts to a human heart

    • The more that you exercise, the faster your heart beats

    • You can check your heart rate by putting two fingers to the bottom of your right jaw. Count for 6 seconds and then multiply by 10

    • They made artificial lungs out of balloons, straws, plastic bottles, and rubber bands

    • They used a stethoscope to check their heartbeats
      They completed and obstacle course on how their body works

    Thank you to our 5th Grade Team: Mrs. Ortez, Mr. Tsivikas, and Ms. Rivoli for planning an amazing day full of learning opportunities. Thank you to all the parents that volunteered and helped out in the classrooms.

    - Dana Hardester

    Dear Parents, Twenty of our leadership students attended the California Association of Student Leaders (CASL) Middle School Conference on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of last week. The students attended sessions to learn new techniques and gain perspectives to bring back to our school to help students feel like they belong to our school. In addition, several of our students presented leadership ideas at the "Meet the Pros" session. Our presenters were: Alex M., Isabella C., Courtney M., Sammie C., Cameron C., Siena T., Sarah R., and Michael D. Some of the ideas they presented included using technology, Crazy Hair Day, and Cancer Awareness. Roy Cloud School received the Outstanding Leadership Program Award at the closing session. This distinguished honor was presented to schools whose student leadership programs are proven spaces where student leaders grow as ethical, responsible, servant-minded change-makers. It was awarded to the top 5% of all middle schools in the state of California. I would like to thank all the parents that helped drive the students to and from the conference. Thank you to Gustavo Cortez for chaperoning. Thank you to all of our student leaders who represented Roy Cloud. Thank you to Mrs. Gaston for coordinating the event, giving her time, and being a wonderful leadership role model for our students.

    Dear Parents, Last weekend some of our 8th grade students participated in the IBM IOT (Internet of Things) app-a-thon. Students used IBM's BlueMix platform to build apps that could link IOT devices like smartphones and/or a network used by hospitals, doctors, etc. The students built apps to monitor things like room temperature and humidity, and they built apps to assist people in finding their car when they have forgotten where they parked. Students used their presentation skills to present their work at the end of the event. Thank you to Carolyn Nguyen for letting us know about this opportunity. - Dana Hardester

    Fly away to Neverland with Peter and the Darling children in Disney's adaptation of their beloved animated film. Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as "Following the Leader," "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me." Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook! Filled with adventure, music and a beloved hero,Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a magical story sure to appeal to those young and old who've always wished they could travel to their own Never Land.
