Hello Parents!

Our Adventure Dash Fun Run Fundraiser is off to an AMAZING start! We have a fun Weekend Challenge that the kids are sure to be excited about.

It is a Foam Party Challenge!! If your child can raise an additional $75 from now through Sunday night, they will have EXCLUSIVE access to their Grade's Foam Party on Dash Day!!

This challenge will get us closer to our goal and will also be a great experience for your students and their friends! So SHARE that link with 3 people and on Instagram and Facebook so your child can get foamed with their friends!!

If they have not registered for their personal link or shared their link for donations, there is still plenty of time!


Let’s get as many donations as we can by sharing your child’s personal link with as many people we know through Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Email, Text, Etc.

BRAG-Board Behavior with Spirit, Pride & Honor @ RJ Richey

More PRIDE with RJ's Bulldog Brag-Boards

For this 3rd Six-Weeks, we are promoting making great choices with our Bulldogs for high-quality work and behavior!

Each of our classrooms has a class BRAGboard where students will get to sign their name when they get caught making great choices, demonstrating hard-work ethic, kindness with others, and for modeling Spirit, Pride, and Honor!

Each week, we will share the classrooms that have filled up their bragboards and added their class name to our campus brag board, allowing us to get one step closer to a school-wide reward!

Please encourage your child to show their Spirit, Pride, and Honor with great choices at school with both their behavior and their work! We LOVE celebrating them! Talk to your student about how often they get to sign the brag board in class and the reason behind their big BRAGS!

CONGRATULATIONS this week to these classes filling up their class Brag-Boards:

3rd grade: Bell

4th grade: Brewer, Floyd, Skripka, Dillard, Evans

5th grade: Bryan, Boettcher, Marinelarena, Ward, Werner
