Richmond Drive Newletter

January 6, 2019

Welcome Back

As we moved forward into the 2nd half of the school year, I want to take time to wish you all a happy new year and thank you for your participation at school as a volunteer, member of PTO and School Improvement Council, coming in for conferences and supporting Richmond Drive. It takes all of us for success to happen!

School will resume the normal schedule beginning on Monday, January 7. I have already begun getting back to my normal schedule which includes going to bed earlier.

The building opens at 7:00am. Students may eat breakfast in the cafeteria or K-2nd go to the music room and 3rd - 5th go to the media center. The first bell rings at 7:40am and the tardy bell rings at 7:45am. Remember students should be in their classroom at 7:45am so they are not counted tardy. If you plan for your student to eat breakfast at school, please have them at school no later than 7:30am.

As we return students will have winter MAP testing. This will show us how much each child has grown so far this year. Kindergarten - 2nd grade will begin testing the first week we return and 3rd - 5th will begin the second week. As with all work at school please encourage your child to take their time and do their best.

Safety is a top priority and we will also continue practicing our emergency drills as well as teaching positive choices towards our self and others.

It takes staff, families and the community to make Richmond Drive a success.. Each of you are extremely important in this success. I appreciate you working beside each of us in helping your student grow and become college and career ready in the future.

Again, thank you and we look forward to seeing your child on Monday.
