Teacher of the Year - Susan Fennell

Please join me in congratulating our Teacher of the Year, Susan Fennell!

Her nomination stated “she works harder than required 100% of the time. Teaching is not a 9 to 5 job for her and she constantly pours herself into her students and co-workers. Her love of education is contagious. She makes me want to do better.”

1st Friday for Charity has been moved to Friday, September 13th - CURE


Richmond Hill Primary School uses the 7 Mindsets Social-Emotional Curriculum in our daily routine. We want to ensure that we are teaching the whole child - not just ABCs and 123s. Being part of a community that is bigger than your core family is a key concept that we want our students to learn, so we have decided to partner with a different charity each month to give back.

This month, RHPS is collecting donations for CURE Childhood Cancer in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. CURE is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research while supporting patients and their families.

Students are encouraged to wear a cap and bring a dollar donation to CURE on Friday, September 13, 2019. Your donation should be sent to school in an envelope with the child’s name and donation amount written on the outside. Donations in any amount are welcome!


Lunch visitors welcome this week!

  • Parents may join their children for lunch beginning Monday, September 9th.
  • Due to limited space/seating, students may have only 2 visitors at a time.
  • Parents joining their child for lunch have a special visitors’ table in the cafeteria.
  • We do ask that you limit lunch visits to twice/month.
  • Visitor lunch price is $3.85.

We encourage all of our diners to enjoy meals prepared at school, since food from outside restaurants should not be brought during our scheduled lunch program.
