Richey's First Take

Teacher of the Year
It's that time of year!
We are seeking nominations for the 2024 Red Clay Teacher of the Year. Being selected as a Teacher of the Year is one of the highest honors the district bestows on Red Clay teachers.
The nomination window opens on Friday, January 20, 2023 and closes on Thursday, February 9, 2023.
Chromebooks and Cold temperatures
As we move into the winter months, it's important to remember that no technology devices should be left in cars overnight.
Batteries drain rapidly in freezing temperatures and condensation can cause permanent damage to the battery and LCD screen. If you forget to bring your student's Chromebook into your home, the best thing to do is not use it immediately. Bring it inside and gradually let the Chromebook warm to room temperature before charging and turning on the device.
MTSS PAWS Cart
Thank you to the families that have purchased items from our Amazon Wish List. We greatly appreciate the support!
Many of you have reached out looking for ways you can support Richey and our students. We would love to have donations for our PAWS Cart. Students visit the cart once per marking period and use the PAWS they've earned for Practicing Safe Behavior, Acting Responsibly, Working Cooperatively, and Showing Respect to select items of their choice. We put together an Amazon Wish List. If you choose to donate, the items will be shipped directly to Richey Elementary School. As always, thank you for your support!
Below is the link to the Amazon Wish List.
