November 2, 2016
Dear Parents and Students of Rio Del Mar,
This is Mr. Sweet and I have a quick update from the afterschool program. The week of November 14-18th, when we have parent teacher conferences, there will be no afterschool program. School will get out each day at 12:20 that week for all grades.

Also, starting the Monday after Thanksgiving Break we will have several new enrichment classes provided at after school program. The classes will include: Ceramics and Multimedia, School Newspaper Team, Magic the Gathering card game, GamePro Video Programming and Coding, Cross Fit Training Class, and Piano. Paperwork can be found on the after school website at:

Finally, tomorrow night the Aptos St. BBQ will host a Rocking Rio del Mar Restaurant Night. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit school music in Aptos. The bands that will play are the Kommon Kore from Rio, Caffeine from AJHS and The Shredders from AHS. Come enjoy the BBQ and support your local schools!

Enjoy the sunshine!
Mr. Sweet
