Dear Richland Families,


School is closed tomorrow, Monday, for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Below is a video you can watch with your children to understand why we honor Dr. King, and there are opportunities to get involved in service at the High School on Monday.


Tuesday is an exciting day for Richland! We are applying for Lighthouse status, the highest designation achievable within the Leader in Me framework. Tuesday is our review day, where a LIM coach will assess our readiness for official reviewers in the spring. Students and staff have worked hard to prepare!


Students will shine! Students will serve as greeters and tour guides, share their leadership portfolios, and produce and perform live announcements. Our LIM visitor will also have a Q & A with student and staff leaders and visit classrooms to observe evidence of LIM in action!


Students should wear Richland spirit shirts or dress in blue and white on Tuesday.


As always, thank you for your support!

LIBRARY UPDATE

IN THE LIBRARY

The library learning target Use Resources Correctly to Access Information helps students to utilize both print and non print materials as a source of information. Whether one uses a book or a website located via search engine, understanding keywords is essential to accessing information effectively. Proper keyword selection begins with analyzing the research question at hand, extracting the important words; the who, what, where, and when within the question, typically the nouns. These keywords provide students with the focus words to locate within a table of contents, index, or for use within a search engine search term box. Did you know it’s just as important to consider synonyms for the extracted keywords? That’s right, the words you use when developing a question may not be the same words the author uses when sharing his or her thoughts, ideas, or facts. Now go find that information correctly!
