On February 12th, RBES will be having a Food Drive to provide items to the Red Bud Food Pantry. In return for a donation, students will be able to have a Hat Day! Please donate items on or before February 12th.
Examples of items in need include:
Hamburger Helper (Noodle Meals)
Macaroni and Cheese
Appointments are now being made for the Pre-School Screening which will be held on March 16. Please call the office to schedule an appointment for any child who turns 3 by September 1, 2016.
RBES would like to thank our community members for making our first blood drive a great success!
We were able to provide the American Red Cross with 45 units of blood to help save lives.
Red Bud Elementary School students and staff want to express our deepest gratitude for those who came out to support our drive efforts.
During the spring semester (January through June) of the 2015-2016 school year, schools within the city of Chicago and throughout the state will have the opportunity to conduct the Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) with students in 8th, 10th or 12th grade. Your child’s school may choose to participate. Red Bud Elementary School will take the survey on January 8th.
WHAT IS THE ILLINOIS YOUTH SURVEY?
The purpose of the IYS is to better understand youth attitudes and behaviors that can impact student problems and academic success. It will ask about topics including nutrition, physical activity, bullying, tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use. Students will be asked to
complete a survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be confidentially administered during one class period. The survey is completely voluntary and privacy will be strictly protected.
Before the school-selected survey date, you will be sent a notification form officially informing you that the survey is being conducted at your school. This form will allow you to exclude your child from participation and only needs to be returned if you do not want your child to participate. Even if you allow your child to participate, every student will also be given the choice to participate or not.
WHAT IS THE SURVEY DATA USED FOR?
The Illinois Youth Survey will provide your school with a local report of the combined student results which will help to determine which programs may be needed to keep students safe and healthy.
