RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

A Message from Mrs. Hyatt

Parents and family members,

November is the month to remind us to be thankful for all we have. Each of you hold a special place in our hearts at Richmond Drive. I am so thankful for each of you and your children. The staff puts forth so much to assure every child has what they need to be successful and safe. They go above and beyond each and every day. We are blessed to have amazing teachers, assistants, cafeteria staff, custodial staff, security staff and office staff at RDES. Thank you all for all you do as parents and staff!

Red Ribbon Week was so much fun! Check out a few of the pictures of students and staff participating in the variety of activities. Thank you families for helping the students with the variety of clothing and coloring contest.

K5 - 2nd grade have computers. Our 2nd graders began taking the computers home this week and our K5-1st graders will take their computers home as soon as the protective cases arrive. Please remember the protective cases are to stay on all computers at all times for all students.

The temperature is cooler. Please put names on tags in students hoodies and jackets. It makes it easier to find the owner.

Please help you child remember to bring their charged computer to school everyday.

Be sure to follow us on:

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt
