Week of 10/30/23 at Richland Elementary School
There are many highlights included in this newsletter for our last days of October! Jared Campbell, our favorite assembly presenter who returns each year, kicked off Red Ribbon Week with his message of kindness and anti-bullying on Monday. Check out his music and message here!
What wonderful weather for our parade! It was great to see so many families enjoying the afternoon together. Below are some photos to enjoy.
It is hard to believe November begins this week. Below is the New Ways November calendar, November's lunch menu, reminders of teacher conference dates, an invitation to Veterans, and more highlights from last week.
Welcome to November!

OCTOBER OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TIPS & TOOLS
HAND STRENGTH AND DEXTERITY
Fine motor skills involve the use of the fingers, hands, and arms for reaching, grasping and manipulating objects. Children need to build strong fine motor skills and dexterity for everything at school: writing, cutting, drawing, playing, leisure skills, self-help and more.
