Week Ending 10/14/16 at Richland Elementary School
Halloween Parade at Richland!
Our school-wide parade will begin at 2:15 on the blacktop behind the school. Parents and guardians are invited to watch the parade in designated areas. Fall celebrations will follow the parade. Teachers will communicate with parents who will be assisting with class celebrations. Please note that only those parents confirmed to volunteer may come into the school after the parade. We appreciate your understanding of our efforts to ensure a safe and fun afternoon.

If you would not like your child to participate in the parade, please write a note to your child's teacher and alternate activities will be provided.

Kindergarten Has Fun With the Alphabet
In kindergarten, students have been learning to read, write, and say the letters of the alphabet. As a fun way to review letters and letter sounds, they wrote them in shaving cream and had a blast learning!
