Recently, RPA had a contest at the middle school during the month of April (National Poetry Month) and students were asked to write a poem about the culture at RPA. Here are the three top finishers' poems. Congratulations to the winners!

At this school RPA
Sometimes Students go astray
But do not worry about that long overdue essay
For we will repay it to you
RPA always finds a way to complete what it’s started
After we have Departed
And our work has become uncharted
We will have completed our work
But with our minds combined
We will go in a straight str
And then our grades will shine
Just find our passion
Just do your part and we will do ours
With those constant hours
We have super powers
With your experience
We need you
We make a great crew
We will always make it through
Together we cannot fail
A little faith is all that's needed
And with that we proceeded
And then we all succeeded
That is the only requirement
We will become a true blaze
All we sometimes need is an inspiring phrase
Under a teacher's gaze
This is the magic of RPA’s ways
"A Day in the Life of RPA"
By: Jessilynne Beeman, Caitlin Erickson,
and Kaylen McAdams (6th grade)
I walk into school every day with my notebook in my hand,
Ready for my lessons today,
I pack up my stuff and I’m ready to stand,
With my friends next to me I head to P.E,
When class is dismissed we go to lunch,
I decided to help pick up trash and all my friends helped me,
The best time of the day is elective time, yay!
Now it’s the end of the day, we all help to put chairs away,
With my head held high, I am proud to say that I completed the day,
When we go home, we talk about our day and remember that...
“RPA is a great school we know we are RAD kids,
By Esmeralda Cervantes (6th grade)
R.A.D. stands for
Is that all you think that RPA stands for?
No RPA stands for unique and proficient learning, free to be who you really are, Free to stand out, Free to
Show yourself to the world.
Some are writers, some are scientists, some are Doctors, some are artists,
Some are actors, some are singers, some are teachers, some are students, and finally WE ARE ONE AND WE ARE ALL UNIQUE.
