Last Week 6/6/22 - 6/13/22 at Richland Elementary School
I can't believe we are at the end of the 2021-2022 school year! In a year full of challenges and achievements, we thrived by being together. We are proud of the partnerships between families, staff, students, and our greater community. It is always amazing to watch your children grow throughout the year. Thank you for entrusting us with them!
Richland was a sea of red, white, and blue at an extraordinary Field Day in honor of the #KingBoys. Students from kindergarten through fifth grade were quoted as saying, "Best day ever!" Thank you to the many parent volunteers who helped make the day so memorable.
We want to thank Richland's amazing PTO and parent volunteers! You are a large part of how we thrived this year! Please see an invitation to celebrate our volunteers below.
We have quite an exciting 6 days left before school ends on June 13 and we head off to summer! This week, students in K-4 will visit classrooms in the next grade level on Move Up day. We will also celebrate with ceremonies for our kindergarteners and our fifth graders.
Look for communication this summer about days Richland will be open for summer activities.
Enjoy the summer with your loved ones, and take time to sharpen the saw!
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS: YOU ARE INVITED
FIELD DAY FUN!

HABIT 8: FIND YOU VOICE
RICHLAND’S GOT TALENT!
SECOND GRADE CONCERT
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE ALUMINUM TAB COLLECTION!
Little things can make a big difference. You can help support the Ronald McDonald House and others affected by childhood cancer or anyone else who needs help from the Ronald McDonald House by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup, or any other aluminum cans. The funds generated from recycling these aluminum tabs help offset The Ronald McDonald House expenses.
This year’s Aluminum Tab Collection Drive to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region is wrapping up, and it’s been a HUGE success!

Richland is administering the Measurable Results Assessment (MRA), a survey and reporting system designed to provide insights into our progress as a Leader in Me school. In order to provide a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, the MRA includes three different surveys; 1) one completed by all school staff, 2) one completed by students in grades 4 and above, and 3) one completed by the families of students in all grades.
We hope you will participate so we can use the feedback to make our school an even better place for students and families. If you have any questions about the surveys or wish to see a list of questions, please contact the school’s front office.

LET'S LOOK FOR WHAT'S GOOD
CONSIDER COMPLETING AN APPLICATION
FOR FREE AND REDUCED MEALS
Currently, our district is providing ALL families with children up to the age of 18 with FREE breakfast and lunch for the remainder of the school year through funds from the US Department of Agriculture. There are no conditions to qualify. However, if you do not have a current application on file for the 2021-2022 school year, you could miss benefits from the State, should it decide to provide the Pandemic EBT Benefits again.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Stacy Reiss, Free & Reduced Lunch Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-529-2022.
