Week of 9/21/20 at Richland Elementary School
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
I am also so thankful for our teachers and staff! Richland staff have been working tirelessly to prepare for the start of school, and we are so happy to connect with your children in person and virtually. Please keep communication open and reach out to teachers with any questions.
We are reminded from our Leader in Me work to focus on our circle of influence and on things we can control. It is with that focus that we are assured we will have a great year knowing we are in this together!
RICHLAND IS A PROUD LEADER IN ME SCHOOL!
We support students as leaders, teachers and staff as leaders, and parents and guardians as leaders. There's a leader in us ALL! It's often students who take the initiative when they see a need and work to address it. This year, we will continue to have a student leadership team with representatives from each grade level, and we look forward to students and families helping us lead the way!
