Staff Shout Outs

Rice has the very best staff with so much heart!!! It was so fun to see everyone enjoying the decades and showing appreciation for each other.

We are set for an amazing week next week!!! It takes every single person on this campus to pour into the lives of our students and set them on a path of growth!!! Each of you are part of that team that at one point or another has imparted wisdom and learning for each of these 3rd and 4th graders!!! Thank you for choosing to serve and love on kids each day!!!
