Dear Riccardi Families,
What a year! As the 2020-2021 school year comes to a close, I am filled with gratitude and a tremendous amount of hope for next year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank various groups that contributed to the education and well-being of our students during this most challenging 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 hard work, our students experienced COVID-friendly, fun and enriching activities throughout the entire school year. Your presence and dedication to our school community is very appreciated!
Our Riccardi Staff for your dedication to our students as well as your adaptability and perseverance throughout the school year. You are the BEST!
Our Student Government for planning and facilitating many activities and recognitions for our school community including: a special recognition event for our Veterans’ in November, Bus Driver Appreciation Breakfast To-Go, Kitchen Staff Appreciation Breakfast, and School Spirit Days. I am so proud of this student duo for the effort they have invested throughout the year. Thank you to our Officers: Cecilia Smith (Vice President) and Lydia Slagsvol (Social Director)! Also, a huge thank you to Mrs. Pettit for her guidance and devotion advising this important program, especially this year.
And to ALL of our parents, guardians, grandparents, family members, and care providers: THANK YOU for your continued support and perseverance throughout a school year many of us could not have imagined. You made the difference in our students’ success this year.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I extend my 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!
I encourage all Riccardi students to participate in our Summer Reading Challenge! More information will be shared soon!
Have a wonderful June and Happy Father’s Day!
I wish everyone a smooth ending to the 2020-2021 school year and a safe, relaxing summer vacation!
