  • Recycle Rally

    recycle rally


    Dear Parents,

    We are pleased to inform you that Raintree Preparatory Academy will be participating again in the Recycle Rally!

    What is Recycle Rally?

    Recycle Rally is a nationwide school recycling program designed to raise awareness among K-12 students about the importance of recycling. It is sponsored by PepsiCo Recycling and can offer our school opportunities to earn valuable supplies and prizes as we teach our students the importance of recycling throughout the year.

    What will my child be asked to do?

    Students will be encouraged to recycle non-alcoholic beverage containers (plastic bottles marked with “#1 PETE” on the bottom and aluminum cans) at school to help our school earn rewards. Upon collection, we will tally and track the number of bags of recyclables to earn rewards points that can be redeemed on merchandise and supplies to help support our recycling program.

    Grade Battle!

    This year, we are having a competition between the grades!  Each grade level has designated bins on their hallway.  I will be keeping track of how much recycling each grade brings in, and the grade that brings in the most by the end of the school year will be awarded some awesome prizes! 

    If folks from the community want to bring recycle items in, without designating it to a grade, those items will be placed in the bins in the front hall, the “Bonus Bins”.  Each week, the grade with the fewest referrals will be credited with those items!

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
