An evening for families
Despite the rainy weather, families enjoyed PQ’s BBQ at the 2015 RMPA Family Picnic followed by the Spring Music Concert and Art Show. A packed house watched as students showed off their harp, handbell and vocal skills! See more photos here.
Students take flight
Students in Ms. Vencl’s class visited the Virginia Aviation Museum for some hands-on exhibits. They sat in a Piper Cub aircraft and learned to fly a scale aircraft in a wind tunnel. They stopped to write in their journals about the experience.
Nitin Patil, father of 4th year student Ravi Patil, volunteered his time and expertise as part of the technology class in Upper Elementary. He presented a hands-on workshop in robotics programming. The students enjoyed the problem solving and fun that comes with maneuvering robots around the classroom.
Toddlers and primary students cheered for each other on field day as they ran relay races, spun in circles, and practiced their balancing skills. See more photos here.
The magic of math
Glenn Hurlbert, sixth grade parent and chair of the Mathematical Sciences Department at VCU visited RMS for a special lesson on the mathematics of sorting.
