This Christmas, may you be grateful for all the gifts around you!

From the Office...

  • Please remember to save Box Tops for Education, Richmond Food Pride receipts, and Teal's receipts. Richmond Elementary School received a check for $1000 from Richmond Food Pride!! Your efforts are certainly appreciated!!
  • Also, a reminder to call or email when students will be tardy or absent, then to sign them in or out when picking up early or dropping off late.

  • Regarding outside play, our goal is to encourage ALL students to get outside through most of Minnesota's wintery weather. However, there will be times to keep students inside at PE, recess or before school. Here is a general reminder of our guidelines: Stay in if: Temperature in 0 or below, Wind chill of -10 or below, Accumulation of rain or sleet.

Richmond Recognition

To the Richmond businesses and community, Thank you for organizing and providing the TreeMendous Christmas Event! This was an amazing evening of caroling and enjoying the sights and sounds of Christmas on the streets of downtown Richmond. To Mr. Rassier, Thank you for leading our students in carols with your trumpet at the event! Your efforts and talents are appreciated! Thank you also to our Stearns County Dairy Princesses, Marissa Willenbring and Kelly Schmitz, for presenting all things Dairy to our students! And to our staff, for volunteering to ring the Salvation Army bell at Coborn's in St. Joseph; what a contribution to our communities! Thanks to all of you for making a difference today to create a better tomorrow!
