Principal’s Note:  From the Office of Susan L. Osterhoudt

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents/guardians, students, and staff for another great and memorable school year.  June is a time for reflecting on the past school year and to thank those who contributed to the enrichment of our students’ school experiences. Therefore, I would like to thank numerous groups for their many contributions this school year.

Thank you to…

Our Riccardi PTA for the time and effort you have put forth in bringing exciting opportunities to our students.  With your dedication and hard work, our students experienced enriching activities such as the FUNDrun, The Variety Show, Halloween Trunk or Treat, PARP, Book Fairs, Mommy and Me Tea, assemblies, and funds towards class field trips. Our students look forward to these activities where they can get together and interact with classmates in a fun way.


Our Field Day Volunteers, both staff and parents, for helping to make it a great day! The weather finally cooperated with us, 3rd time’s a charm! Thank you for your patience and flexibility with the rain dates!


Our Current PTA Officers, Emily Trotter-Bodie (President), Allison Boek (Vice-President), Marcy Wells (Treasurer), Kelly Caldwell (Corresponding Secretary), Lauren French (Recording Secretary) for your leadership in the PTA this year.  Your time and dedication to our school community is very much appreciated by all!


Our Riccardi Staff for your dedication to our students before, during, and after school throughout the entire school year! 


Our Student Government for their outstanding accomplishments this year planning and facilitating many school-wide activities and recognitions; namely, Veterans’ Appreciation Breakfast, Ronald McDonald House donations, Purple Pop Palooza, Bus Driver Appreciation Breakfast, Bulletin Boards, morning announcements, and School Spirit Days.  I am so proud of this group of students for the time and effort they have invested throughout the year and to Ms. Rinaldi and Mrs. Pettit for their time and committee advising this important group of students.


Our Kindness Committee for spreading kindness, compassion, acceptance, and respect in a caring friendly way! Remember, Always Work Hard and Be Kind!


And to ALL of our parents/guardians for your continued support of our school throughout the year. 

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I extend most sincere CONGRATULATIONS to our SIXTH GRADERS and wish each of them continued success and happiness as they move on to the Junior High School. 

They will be missed!!!

I wish everyone a smooth ending to a great year and a safe relaxing summer vacation!
