Dear Riccardi Families,
It’s hard to believe with the cold we’ve been experiencing this March that spring is upon us and the 4th marking period is right around the corner. The third marking period will end on Friday, April 16th. Quarterly Awards will be presented and Report Cards will go home the following Friday, April 23rd. Thank you for your continued support at home!
With spring comes great news for the Riccardi community: Monday, April 5th we will begin 4-day a week in-person instruction for elementary students whose families have committed (responded to the survey or communicated directly with the building) to this. To those students who will be coming back for 4 days a week, we cannot wait to see all of you! While we will still practice protective measures for safety, I am heartened to know that many of you will have the chance to see your friends and teachers more often. I am also looking forward to the much anticipated spring weather and more opportunities to spend time outdoors!
Speaking of springtime, we will kick off April with Spring Pictures, scheduled for Thursday, April 8th and Friday, April 9th. Families with remote students will receive their scheduled timeslot for portraits in the mail. All students will be photographed. If you are interested in ordering your child’s portraits, you can order online at Lifetouch.com.
The New York State ELA Assessments for students in grades 3-6 are scheduled for Monday, April 26, 2021. More information will be shared soon.
Spring Recess is scheduled for March 29th – April 2nd.
Have a wonderful month and a fantastic Spring Break!!!
