Week of 10/16/23 at Richland Elementary School
The rain has cleared, so we hope to see you tonight at Rustic Valley Orchard for Richland's first Fall Festival! See information below if you pre-purchased tickets. Tickets are also available at the entrance. Please note that parent/guardian supervision is required as it is not a drop-off event.
What a fun week we had! First through fifth grade classes visited the mobile Fab Lab set up in the art room. STEAM (Science, Technology, Enginerring, Art, and Math) lessons focused on digital fabrication and computer science. Ask your chlid to share their experience, and check out some highlights below!
Kindergarten through second grade classes had a visit from the West End Fire Company for Fire Safety Week! Students heard from volunteer fire fighters and saw the outside and inside of a fire truck. Ask your child to share what they learned, and see highlights below!
It's Digital Citizenship Week! Teachers will teach lessons during Caring School Community class meetings, and we have special questions of the day and spirit days for more student participation. Check out the details below and how you can extend the learning with family activities.
See you at the orchard!
