Richlands Primary School March 21-25, 2016
Enjoy Your Time Off!!
It is hard to believe that Spring Break begins this week! This school year truly is flying by. We have so much to be proud of so far this school year. We have seen tremendous team work, focus on task, determination to succeed! Each and every one of you have made a major contribution to our many successes!
It is our wish that each of you have a truly tremendous break. In addition to time with family and friends, please take some time for yourself to rest, relax and recharge!

North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions Survey
As of this morning RPS is at 98.25% for completion of the 2016 North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions Survey. I am going to assume (yes, I know what can happen what you assume - LOVE that Sheetz commercial!) that perhaps the one person who did not complete the survey is somehow an error on the State's part. We will have a free dress-down week the week we return from Spring Break - April 4 through April 8.
I'd like to thank everyone for taking part in the survey! We should have results before the end of the school year.
