Richmond Drive Tiger Time
November 26th, 2023
A Message from Mrs. Hyatt
Welcome back from fall break. I hope you all have some time to spend with family and friends. Over the next four weeks, we will all be working hard to learn and grow. It is imperative students come to school on time every day. The tardy bell rings at 7:45 and student should be in their classes at 7:45.
Please remember all students should be reading at home each night as a part of their homework. Students should have books on their level to read as well as library books, which can be read to the students.
The staff at Richmond Drive Elementary appreciate all of your help and support. We love volunteers to come into classes and help around the school. Please sign up to volunteer. Volunteer application link: https://www.rock-hill.k12.sc.us/Page/1188
