Home of the Roadrunners

Scene from RES

Welcome, Summer!

The last day of school began with a patriotic assembly, complete with “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and red, white and blue!

Parting ways with Randolph Elementary School this year are Ms. Molly Abbott (4th grade), Mrs. Julie Bell (PE), Ms. Gretchen Curreri (ESL), Mrs. Barbara Evans (Speech), Ms. Katie Gill (5th grade), Mrs. Laura Hatcher (5th grade), Mr. Mike Simons (PE), Mr. Andrew Snead (Music), and the graduating 5th grade Class of 2015! 

We are looking forward to hearing about their new adventures in life and hope that they remember...Once a Roadrunner, always a Roadrunner!
