RPA Middle School to celebrate “We Are One” month

 

For the month of October, Redmond Proficiency Academy (RPA) Middle School will celebrate its annual “We Are One” month – four weeks of focusing on kindness and respect among students, staff, and the community.    

“We want to take some extra time each week to focus on important qualities such as respecting everyone and their uniqueness, spreading kindness and positivity, connecting with new people to make all feel included, and standing up for one another and one’s self,” said Shawn Diez, middle school counselor.  

The annual month-long celebration includes a different theme each week of October, beginning with “The Courage to be Kind” for week one. The month will also include an art, music, and poetry contest

Diez is encouraging all students to participate and stand together as the middle school focuses on RPA’s motto of “I am RPA. We Are One.” throughout October.
