Outdoor Classroom

Our first spring outdoor ed. activities took place on Friday, May 3rd and then continued throughout the month. Everyone enjoyed being outside after the winter we had! Students found tree buds opening as well as skunk cabbage blooming as they explored the woods. All students participated in celebrating Earth Day by removing dried grass and stems from the prairie so more light can reach the plants that are about to emerge. Students worked in pairs to look for critters in the soil. They were excited to find earthworms, ants, insect larva, neon red spiders, pill bugs, millipedes, and beetles. What an adventure! Our students’ efforts were awesome!

Attention 8th Graders... there are still a few days to apply...

Boby Frings was a dedicated, loyal, caring teacher at Richfield School for nearly 20 years. Boby’s love of teaching and learning was the heartbeat of her educational philosophy. She held herself to high standards in the classroom and expected her students to do the same-- always guiding them to their fullest potential as curious learners and good humans.

Boby’s love of travel found its way into the lessons she planned for her English classes. Creativity and adventure were always part of her plans for motivating students. As a colleague, she was a supportive encourager and a staunch friend. She loved education and lived it every day, constantly challenging herself and others in a quest to keep learning. Her keen sense of humor delighted those in her presence.


The family of Boby Frings has honored her legacy and memory as a teacher through the establishment of the Boby Frings Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is awarded annually to an 8th grade graduate of the Holy Hill Area School District.
