Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had many students turn in their BINGO sheets for I Love to Read month. Way to go! Students and staff wore shirts and sweatshirts we could read and participated in Hats on to Read. Several enjoyed coming to school in pajamas or comfy clothes. We also had Mystery Guests read to our classses. Below is a link to our I Love to Read video and some fun pictures. We hope you enjoy them. Thank you all for your paticipation and remember to keep on reading.

PTA News

The PTA is a non-profit, school-based organization, designed to support our students and staff. The PTA is comprised of all the Richardson parents and/or guardians. All are welcome!

PTA Goals & Objectives

  • To support and enrich our children's education
  • To facilitate good communication between administration, staff, and parents
  • To promote school spirit
  • To encourage volunteerism

Please consider becoming part of this amazing team. With some of the current member's children now being in the 5th grader, this would be a great time to join the team and shadow the members who will move on at the end of the school year.

The PTA is also looking for a volunteer to chair the book fair.
