Greetings, Rainbow Parents:

This communication serves as a reminder to you that all DCSD schools are closed on Monday, October 12, in observance of Columbus Day. 

Additionally, let's congratulate our 2020 - 2021 Principal Advisory Council (PAC) members:  Mrs. Eva Hall, Mrs. Trinette McClain, Ms. Leslie Pierce, Ms. Tanjala Wright, Mrs. Myra Surratt-Walters, and Mr. Otis Smith.  Congratulations PAC members. Thank you for agreeing to serve and support the mission and vision of Rainbow Elementary School.  Please watch for an invitation to our first PAC meeting this month.

I hope everyone stays healthy and safe as we continue to monitor status reports on the COVID-19 pandemic.  Enjoy your holiday weekend.
