RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

No School Friday, May 28th

Notes from Mrs. Hyatt

Dear Richmond Drive Families,

WOW! Students in grades 1-5 worked extremely hard taking their MAP tests this week. I am so proud of the effort they put forth to do their best. Take time to ask your child how testing was for them.

SC READY (writing) will begin on Tuesday, May 25th. Face to face 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will test on Tuesday . (Virtual students will test as follows: 3rd grade on Tuesday, 4th grade on Wednesday, and 5th grade on Thursday at Richmond Drive) Check out all of the details below.

Four year old kindergarten will return to Richmond Drive next year. If you know someone who has a child that will turn 4 by September 1, 2021, share the news. Enrollment is found on the Rock Hill Schools web site. https://www.rock-hill.k12.sc.us/Page/8308

Free Breakfast and lunch are served everyday at Richmond Drive for all students. Students need to arrive no later than 7:40 to pick up breakfast.

Thank you for supporting our students and staff!

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt
