Welcome to Rusch Elementary!

A Great Place to Be

Every Student, Every Chance, Every Day










The Play 60 team showed off the check

with the representative from the Milk Marketing Board,

Mrs. Hon, PCSD nurse

and Mr. Woodhouse, Rusch PE teacher.

Students played a game at Rally with a lettered dice.

All the students and staff were active playing the game!

Keep moving...

...and moving!



Thank you for attending our

P.B.I.S. Family Art Night.

It was a great success!



Families made banners together.


Using QR Codes with iPads,

families watched the expectation videos

around the school.

Families experienced a "Rusch Rally"

as they learned about

Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports (PBIS).

QR Codes took them

all around the school and even outside.

Pizza, popcorn and punch

awaited families in the Dining Room.

It was a great night

to be a family at Rusch!

Famiies received a Scavenger Hunt sheet

to complete around the school for prizes.



Families checked out the Rusch website

and learned about our upcoming events.

The Scavenger Hunt was filled

with clues to solve together.

Families put a sticker

on their name brick for attending.
