The Richardson Review

November 27th, 2022

Dear Richardson Students & Families,

While we only had two days of school last week, we were still able to have lots of fun together as a school community. See above for some photos from our All-School BINGO. It was a BLAST!!! Winners were even allowed to run through the hallways to get their prizes.


Also, last week Sai Thao (our Associate Administrator) led assemblies to teach about Hmong New Year. During those assemblies, all students learned a few words in Hmong. Below are videos from Ms. Y, Ms. Yang, Ms. Lor, Mr. Kong and Ms. Moua's classes - they helped by creating videos for the assemblies.


Ms. Y's class teaches the word - Hello


Ms. Yang's class teaches the word - Sit


Ms. Lor's class teaches the word - Stand


Mr. Kong's class teaches the word - Thank you


Ms. Moua's class teaches the word - Teacher


Along with our assemblies, students enrolled in our Dual Immersion kindergarten class had the chance to learn more about Hmong New Year while in their Hmong clothes. They learned about ball tossing (Pov Pob) and got a chance to play it with Hmong music in the background. They also learned about how Hmong pancakes (ncuav) are made and got to try them too! The students all enjoyed it a lot.


More information will be coming soon about how to register incoming kindergarteners into our Dual Immersion Hmong classes for the 2023-24 school year. For now, here is a little about our programs in ISD622. Dual Language Immersion Programs


As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions around any of the information in this newsletter.


Warmly,

Mrs. Houde (pronounced "hood")
