May is Mental Health Awareness Month

As Mental Health Awareness Month, May is a time to raise awareness of and reduce the stigma surrounding trauma and behavioral health issues and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. We have put together a Google Drive with lots of information, resources, and activities for our Richey families to explore and use. Please take a look and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Durant.

Birthday Celebrations

We do not celebrate individual birthdays with food. Please do not send in cakes, cupcakes, candy, etc. This also goes for store-bought items. If you would like to send in a small gift (Pencil, Sticker, eraser, etc) for the student to give out that could be accommodated. Thank you.
