Parents and Community


Raleigh Road Elementary School implements the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) system.  PBIS is an approach to discipline that creates a safe learning environment for all children.  PBIS is not a program, but a system, based on decades of behavioral and biomedical research.  You will notice the PBIS posters throughout our school.  Our focus is for everyone to “Be Kind, Be Responsible, Be Respectful.”  By using PBIS, we will be moving beyond punishment.  We will teach, monitor, and acknowledge appropriate behaviors before relying on punishment.  The students will receive rewards for positive behavior.  Class, as well as individual rewards, will be handed out to encourage positive behavior.  Together we will continue to create a safe and fun learning environment at Raleigh Road.North Carolina Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Graphic

Reading Rodeo

Cowgirl with a lassoYEE HAH!  We are excited about our “Reading Rodeo” program! It is important that you read with your child every day. At first, you may be reading TO your child. Later in the year, your child should begin reading TO YOU each night. The record will show all the extra reading time that you and your child are doing at home. As students achieve milestones, they are recognized on the Reading Rodeo  bulletin board at the front entrance of the school. Throughout the year, your child will be rewarded for every 100 books read. List the books read each night and return the folder to school each day.  Please take care of this record all year.

Things to Remember…

  • You and your child should read together.  Your child needs your help to become a better reader.
  • Ask your child questions about the stories that you read.  This helps children understand what they are reading.
  • The parent/guardian must record all information and initial.  When reading a chapter book, one chapter counts as one book.
  • Record books only once.  But have fun reading them many times.
  • Please record daily, folders are checked weekly and books read are tallied.  We will not be able to go back and add in books from previous weeks or months.
  • Return the Reading Rodeo folder to school every day.


We invite parents, family members, and friends of Raleigh Road Elementary School to be involved in the fundraising, volunteering, and communications of our school.  We encourage parents to join the PTO and become informed and involved in each child’s educational success and well-being.  “Trotting Toward Success” includes the collaboration of parents, faculty, and staff that are dedicated to making RRES a caring and safe environment that promotes academic growth.
