Happy May! Spring fever has arrived and we are loving it! We hope you all had a great break with your families and we are happy to see everyone’s smiling faces!

May is one of our favorite months because there is so much fun to be had!

May is gardening month here at RCD. We have beautiful gardens that we plant with vegetables, flowers, pumpkins and herbs. We also have a recognized monarch butterfly weigh-station garden full of milkweed! Students and teachers are responsible for planting and tending to these gardens.
