Volunteer Training

Georgia law regarding volunteers in non-profit organizations establishes that all volunteers are now mandated reporters.  In order for all volunteers to understand the law and know the reporting protocols,  volunteer training regarding the new mandated reporter law will be provided. Below are the dates for the RBES volunteer training. If you plan to volunteer in a classroom or school activity (including class parties, field day, working with students, etc.) you should attend one of the dates below.

Tue Aug 5, 2014 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Fri Aug 15, 2014 9:00am – 10:00am
Thu Aug 28, 2014 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Sat Sep 6, 2014 9:00am – 10:00am


IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL RBES VOLUNTEERS TO BE TRAINED. We will need ALL volunteers to attend one of the training options in order for everyone to be able to continue to serve as a volunteer.

Please know we appreciate you, your time, and commitment to RBES.

RBES is excited to offer first day school supply kits for the 2014/15 school year.  The supply kits include all of the items on the teacher grade level lists for meet the teacher other than "wish list" items and backpacks.  The kits have been approved by Mrs. Wages and the grade level teachers, and contain all of the items exactly as the school wants them, right down to the preferred brand.  The school has provided first day with our 2014/15 supply lists, which have been verified and approved on the first day website. 

Ordering the kits is easy - simply click the link below and it will take you to our page (zip code 30677, RBES).  Select your grade level options, add to your cart, and enter your credit card information in the completely secure system for payment.  Orders must be place by June 30, 2014.

The kits will be delivered to RBES and in your child's classroom at Meet the Teacher.  This is a hassle free way to shop, and I personally found the prices to be lower than what I paid last year at Target and Office Depot.  Also, you can avoid the shops during those last weeks of summer!!! 
 If you have any questions on this program, please email me, Michele Berente, at  This is not a fundraiser (we are taking no profit on the school supplies), just a service provided to you and the teachers for a smooth beginning to the 2014/15 school year.  We will receive a list of all students who have purchased school supply kits, so the school will be aware of your order and able to check to be sure all kits are received.  First Day School supply does offer backpacks (including Under Armour), which can be purchased at the same time as your kit and ship to the school.  This is a great program and we are VERY excited to offer it this year!!!
