New Lunch Options at RINI

Grab ‘N Go”

bag lunches are now offered during the regularly scheduled lunch periods. Generally they will consist of a cold sandwich, vegetable, and fruit. At times, there will also be lunch salads available as “Grab ‘N Go”. These items will be self-serve and will eliminate the need for students to stand in line for lunches if a hot meal is not wanted.

Flu Shots at RINI

Flu shots will be available to all students at RINI on Thursday, October 17, 2019 between 8:00-3:00 pm. Permission slips will be sent home in the next week for those families interested. Flu shots will also be available for families at the RINI Parent Teacher Conferences in November. More information about specific times will follow in later issues.

Providence Public Library Opportunity

Great Stories Club: “Growing Up Brave on the Margins”

“Growing up brave on the margins of society means moving forward in the face of fear and daunting circumstances…the books in this series feature strong protagonists who rise to challenges and fight for justice in their communities in the face of parents who may not always understand them, peers who doubt them, and communities who dismiss them or even find them dangerous.”


We will read and discuss four books and we will have two racial healing circles, one in October and one in March. The group will work together to decide on possible after school activities. All participants (15 total) will receive copies of the books to keep.

Application due by October 11
