Anywhere Games That Only Require Your Kids' Brains ​Hi RA Families! Wouldn't you like some handy games that require nothing? Nothing from the store, nothing from the house? Check out the three articles linked​ to cool games and resources​ in the email below – and the fourth in PostScript! - for activities that require (mostly) nothing but an active brain! It's not quite true that your kids don't anything to play these games. They do need: their brains. And for some of them, they might need a pencil or a coin or something. But for the most part, these games will give kids the opportunity to have old-school fun while also boosting their brainpower! So keep these games on hand to fill in those spare moments or when you just need something to pass the time. 26 Memory games 15 Brain games 20 Waiting games That should get everyone through the summer! Happy playing, Renaissance Academy P.S. For need-nothing games that get kids moving outside try these 10 tag games that will tire them out!

We want them to look their best on graduation day and we need your help to do so. Volunteers may come in anytime from June 7th - June 10th to steam the gowns. If you are available please donate your time. Please contact Mrs. Felton, Family Services Coordinator at 225-4200 x209. Please reply by Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

Dear RA Families, As you may already know the Center for Disease Control has decreased the number of feet between students from 6 feet to 3 feet. Renaissance Academy’s Reopening Committee met to review the new guidance, survey families and staff, and make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees to determine if any changes need to be made to our current program configuration. After reviewing all of the information and discussing options the Reopening Committee recommended to the Board of Trustees to maintain our current configuration for the remainder of this school year. Looking forward to the Next School Year The Board of Trustees and the school leadership team is planning for a 2021-2022 school year that will be 5 days a week for all students. The reopening committee will continue to meet to ensure all guidance from the New York State Department of Education, New York State Department of Health, and the Center for Disease Control. As it gets closer to the start of the 2021-2022 school year more information will be shared. The calendar for the 2021-2022 school year is attached to this letter for your information and review. Should you have any questions please feel free to reach out to either of us. Sincerely, Donna Marie Cozine, Ed.D. Cait Loury, Ed.D. Chief Educational Officer Principal

Good Morning RA Families, Below is a great opportunity for parents to voice their ideas and concerns. I recognize it is a bit short notice, however, if you are available tonight to participate I strongly encourage you to do so. Funding has also been secured to pay parents that agree to help shape the proposal between now and April 30th. Please consider joining them TONIGHT to identify needed system changes that impact children in Rochester (see attached flyer). The focus will be on Education, Health, and Human Service Systems. Their approach will be your approach, with a commitment to use these funds to pay parents to be engaged, provide paid training on community organizing, and potentially hire parents to lead change efforts. They are NOT asking you to sit at another table and start over, rather we want to get behind what you are already passionate about and help make connections for greater impact. You will be sitting at a table of parents setting priorities about how to allocate resources in our community – we will be listening to you and supporting you to implement the changes you want to see. To join the meeting and for more information, please contact Steve Hanmer at shanmer@abcinfo.org or Tanya Thurman at tthurman@abcinfo.org. Thank you on behalf of our team, Action for a Better Community, Jordan Health, and Ibero-American Action League

Dear RA Families, As the end of the year approaches RA needs to plan for the opening of school in the fall. We are not sure if we can reopen fully therefore a group of parents, staff members, and community members have been working to create options for opening school in the fall in two different formats. The first format is 100% virtual, similar to what we have been doing since March 16th. The second option is a hybrid program where half the students come to the school building two days a week, the other half attend the other two days and one day a week is all virtual from home. We are hopeful that by using all open areas in our building we will be able to service half of the school following the CDC guidelines for social distancing. The committee is eager to hear your thoughts on each option and will use your feedback to continue to plan. We feel that these two plans will best meet the needs of our students. As has been the case since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, the actions that we take will be based on the guidance provided by Governor Cuomo’s office which should come by the end of June. Please take a few moments to respond to these survey questions by Wednesday, Jun 10th at noon.

Greetings RA Community: Sending my best to you and your families for your safety, health, and wellness. During these challenging and uncertain times, Renaissance Academy and all charter schools are facing a new obstacle. Please read below. New York Charter Schools are in a State of Emergency. A high performing charter school in Buffalo New York, BuffSci, was voted down in May by the New York State Regents after being recommended for a 5 year approval by the State Education Department. In making its decision to close BuffSci the Regents cited concerns about the impact the school has on the local district’s finances. BuffSci is not being forced to close its doors because of poor performance, it is forced to close because it is a charter school. This was an unprecedented decision by the NYS Board of Regents. In a stand of solidarity for BuffSci Charter School, and all charter schools, we are asking RA families and staff to write a letter to their state legislators who appoint the Regents. Click on the link below to register and send your pre-populated letter to your state legislator. https://nycharters.quorum.us/campaign/26555/. This process will only take two minutes of your time. Please take action by this Saturday, June 6, 2020. No school is safe. Charter schools are at risk. Don't let the Regents take away your school choice. Act Now! Thank you, as we come together to ensure that charter schools remain an option for our children. #WeStandWithBuffSci Sincerely, Kimberly M. Felton Family Services Coordinator

Dear RA Families, I wanted to share with you that we had a slight issue in the building of which you should be aware. Earlier today we were having our boilers serviced and one of the boilers was emitting gas into the building. The gas was NOT at a dangerous level but we chose to evacuate the building as we cleared out the gas and checked all areas with a gas meter. The students were amazing during the evacuation and you should be very proud of them. They exited the building quickly and quietly and remained outside respectfully while they waited to come back into the building. Again, the building is completely safe and we are "back in business" children are back in the classrooms and joyfully learning! I hope you have a wonderful day! Dr. Cozine
