Dear RAUC Families,

I hope you each had a wonderful vacation week. Happy holidays to those who celebrate Passover or Easter. For me it was nice to get away and it was also nice to come back Monday and see the smiles on student faces as they reconnected to their school community.  

We are starting our final quarter and the calendar can get busy! Please make sure your calendars are marked for end of the year events. Band, Orchestra, and Chorus/Urban Legends concerts are happening at 6PM Tuesday, May 7th, Wednesday, May 8th, and Thursday, May 9th, respectively. Families of the performing groups already received a letter from the music teachers, but the concerts are open to all! The RAUC Musical performs at 7PM on Thurday, May 30 and Friday, May 31. Our first ever 6th and 7th grade portfolio celebrations will be 6PM Thursday, June 6th and 9AM Friday, June 7th. There will be more inform as we get closer to these dates, but you won’t want to miss this opportunity to see the work students have chosen and their reflections on why they chose it. 8th grade portfolio panels will happen starting May 29th – 8th grade families can stay tuned for more specific details. And 8th grade graduation is Monday, June 17 at 1PM. That will be a noon early release day for all RAUC students.

Of course there will be other events--science fairs for 7th and 8th graders, end of year trips for 6th and 7th grade, and the DC trip for the 8th grade. And in between, experiments will be conducted, math problems will be puzzled over, arguments will be honed, essays refined, and presentations polished. Here’s to a final quarter of aiming high and having fun in the process!

Best,

Julie Craven, Head of School
