Richlands Primary School April 4-8 , 2016
I hope that everyone has had a truly wonderful Spring Break! I hope that you all have had the chance to enjoy your family and friends. More so, I hope you had the opportunity to get some well-deserved time to yourself!
We are on the homeward stretch now and the end of the year will be here before we know it. Third round observations are in full swing and we quickly approaching our EOY benchmark. We need to have a focused determination as we begin back to school. Please pay special attention to friends who are at-risk of failing. We will begin to have retention conferences towards the beginning of May.
Enjoy your evening and we will see you tomorrow morning!

Are you building a positive emotional environment for your students?
