K-8 Graduation

K-8 Graduation


Wednesday, May 1, 6:30 PM

Join us in celebrating each class as they graduate into their next year of learning and growing! We are especially excited to hear our 8th graders present their Graduation Talks to the Rainbow Community. Many of our 8th graders have been at Rainbow since preschool and all of them will have inspiring stories to tell of how they came of age right here within this transformative community of educators, parents, friends, mentors, counselors, family, and changemakers.

All students will need to arrive around 6:00 pm. The ceremony will start at 6:30 pm in the front yard.

After the ceremony, we will gather for treats and celebration out on the Rainbow Community School playground!

Join us in the Rainbow Community Center to witness our youngest little Rainbows step into their new realm of learning. Our graduation gathering will be followed by a picnic in the outdoor classroom. All are welcome to celebrate the leaps and bounds our Turtles and Dragonflies have taken this past year. They are emerging from this year of Preschool confident in themselves and their relationships, ready to talk about their feelings and activate their dreams.

Please note that the picnic is B.Y.O.L. (Bring Your Own Lunch!)

Car Wash

Car Wash

Saturday, May 21st, 11 AM

While you peruse the 1st Annual Rainbow Flea on Saturday May 21 drop your car off at 60 State Street from 10am to 1pm to have it washed!

Student Council is self-organizing this car wash to benefit the activity #adventurebus fundraiser! Rainbow students are eager to have their very own bus, so they can spend more time outdoors basking in nature and fine tuning their scientist, environmentalist, and naturalist skills!

As conscientious citizens of this planet our 4th, 5th and 6th grade student council members will be washing cars using homemade and eco-friendly soap and a minimal amount of water. Come enjoy a guilt free car wash while you explore our flea market, knowing your generosity will help hundreds of Rainbow students connect to the natural domain on their new activity bus!

1st Annual Rainbow Flea!

1st Annual Rainbow Flea!


On Saturday, May 21st, Rainbow Community School will host our 1st Annual Rainbow Flea, a community marketplace to upcycle household items, clothing, art and all! Let this be the start of something great!

Expect cool stuff to buy, spaces to sell your old stuff, food trucks, and a busking performance stage. We will also have a Kids Market Area on the hillside for kids to sell their old toys.

Reserve your space in the office today. Flea Market spaces are $20 and Kids Market spaces are $5. 1st come, 1st served. This old school flea market will serve as a benefit, with profits from space reservations going towards the Rainbow Bus Campaign in their efforts to secure an adventure activity bus for our Rainbow students. All personal profit is yours to keep!

Please help us get the word out by sharing this event!

Strive Not to Drive Week: Commuter Station!

Strivenot-to-drive-Facebook-Event-BannerJoin Rainbow in a city wide effort to strive not to drive for a solid week from May 15 through May 22nd. Instead of driving to work, school, community meetings, the grocery store or the gym, for example, try taking the bus, walking, carpooling with friends, or biking!

You will be rewarded for your efforts on May 18th from 8am to 9am with coffee and treats right on Haywood Road. Stop by on your way to work! Omega Middle School students will be hosting a commuter station at 574 Haywood Rd to treat people who are walking or commuting via bike, bus, or carpool!

There will be coffee from Firestorm Books & Coffee, snacks from West End Bakery and West Village Market & Deli as well as a bike maintenance station from Asheville Street & Dirt.

Come on over to chat, secure your caffeine for the morning, nourish your body, and build community!
