Mrs. Gibbs and the Yearbook staff are having to be creative due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is asking for input related to how students have been surviving during our home quarantine. If you have (appropriate) quotes or even pictures of what you have been thinking or doing, please email to vgibbs@rattan.k12.ok.us by June 1st. Also, if you are one of our Kindergarten or 8th grade graduates, and you have a picture in your cap and gown, she would love to include those in our Yearbook as well. We know it’s been a tough year, but we still want to celebrate as best we can this historical year!

From Curtis Duncan: This week we are developing E-notes for communication from teachers to the parents in their classes. Parents will need to subscribe to the teacher and schools lists to get messages.This subscription service is at the bottom of our webpage. E-notes will allow for personal messages from teachers to the parents of their students.Parents will be able to find their teacher on our webpage and send personal emails to the teacher. Teachers are also putting information on their webpages for student enrichment for those that do have Internet available. Packets will be available for students that do not have Internet available. Having said that, the enrichment material that is available on our website is device agnostic for the most part and smartphones will be able to access and use much of that material. The webpage I'm referring to is www.rattan.k12.ok.us and the E-notes management is towards the bottom of the page. For interested parents please subscribe to E-notes. It should be functional in a couple of days. You will have to subscribe to individual teachers on your child’s schedule and not just homerooms.

Good Monday Morning. Thanks to Rattan School receiving a TSET grant and a big thanks to the Choctaw Nation for matching this grant Rattan now has a community walking tract. I want to thank County Commissioner Brad Burgett and his staff for helping this become a reality. Rattan School is also the proud owners of two new Activity Buses. This was in part due to a USDA Rural Development Grant. We are very proud of these new buses, thanks Rural Development!!
