Third Grade Biomes Visit

Third Grade enjoyed a visit from Biomes that involved interactive and hands-on live animal demonstrations. This reinforced the Structures of Life science unit. This was paid for by the third grade popcorn fundraiser. The students really enjoyed this program and they were all given one free pass to visit Biomes in North Kingstown.

Field Day BBQ

Dear Richmond Elementary School Parents/Guardians,

To coincide with our Field Day this year Aramark will be cooking a barbeque for lunch.

The meal choices that day will be hamburger, cheeseburger or hot dog. Also on the menu will be corn on the cob and fresh watermelon.

In addition, they will offer a sunny butter & jelly sandwich or the daily salad for those who do not want the grill options.

The Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, June 18th, with a rain date of Friday, June 19th.
