RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

A Great Week Back!

Dear Richmond Drive Families,

Our first week back was very successful. We were so excited to see all of the children's faces as they walked into the building. Thank you for sending laptops back charged each day.

I hope you all had the opportunity to look over your child's progress report to see the growth they are making at school. Please know you are welcome to call the school to set up a time to talk with your child's teacher if you would like additional information about your child's progress. (Richmond Drive phone number 803-981-1930)

I would like to invite everyone to participate in the School Improvement Council Meeting Monday, January 11 at 5:00. We will follow up the meeting with the PTO meeting. This is a great time to hear all that's going on at school and ways you can get involved too. Having family members join us means a lot to everyone at Richmond Drive Elementary.

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt
