Dear Riccardi Elementary School Families:
Wow, the school year is off to a great start and I look forward to the many wonderful activities that October will bring.
Thank you to our PTA for helping with school pictures in September!
Our annual Open House yielded a wonderful turnout and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and greet the family members who were able to attend this very important event for their children. This year our “Be the ‘I’ in Kind” photo booth was very popular with our families. The students are always excited and proud to show who their teachers are and share some of their special projects. I truly believe the partnership between school and home is vital to the overall academic and social success of your child.
The week of the 7th has been designated as Fire Prevention Week and our students will benefit from the dedicated efforts of the Glasco Fire Department in providing a variety of wonderful culminating activities on Friday, October 11th.
I wish to extend a special thank you to our Glasco Fire Company personnel for their assistance with our evacuation drill and upcoming Fire Prevention Program. We are very lucky to be surrounded by such caring volunteers who give their time to help guide, teach and prepare our students about the many facets of safety awareness and procedures.
With October being Safety Awareness Month, please remember to check your smoke / carbon monoxide detectors and discuss with your child(ren) safety procedures for fall activities.
