Thank you to the families that have purchased items from our Amazon Wish List. We greatly appreciate the support!

Many of you have reached out looking for ways you can support Richey and our students. We would love to have donations for our PAWS Cart. Students visit the cart once per marking period and use the PAWS they've earned for Practicing Safe Behavior, Acting Responsibly, Working Cooperatively, and Showing Respect to select items of their choice. We put together an Amazon Wish List. If you choose to donate, the items will be shipped directly to Richey Elementary School. As always, thank you for your support!

Below is the link to the Amazon Wish List.
