Dear Riccardi School Families:
October was an eventful month at Riccardi as we engaged in many activities…field trips, Summer Reading Challenge awards, Fire Safety and Trunk or Treat. We also kicked off our first Fantastic Fall Fundraiser. Thank you to the Summer Reading Challenge Committee, the PTA, the Glasco Fire Dept., and Riccardi Staff for making all these events possible.
I would like to extend a very special “Thank You” to the volunteers of the Glasco Fire Dept. and Life Net Air 2 for the educational and memorable Fire Safety Program and helicopter landing they provided for our students during Fire Prevention Week. They engaged with our young learners as appropriate to provide invaluable information on fire prevention and safety as well as emergency medical attention. This experience is sure to leave a lasting impression on all of our students. Great job!
Also, thank you to Emily Trotter-Bodie and Allison Boek for doing a great job organizing the Fantastic Fall Fundraiser. As this fundraiser continues into November, we look forward to the drawing of exciting prizes including a Grand Prize offered by Efros Orthodontics in Kingston, not to mention the many wonderful prizes donated by parents, staff and our wonderful Saugerties community.
Elementary evening conferences will be held on Thursday, November 16th. If you have not heard from your child’s teacher regarding scheduling a conference on the 16th, and you would like one, please contact your child’s teacher.
American Education Week begins Monday, November 13th. Our school will be open for parent/guardian visitors between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Tuesday, November 14th and Wednesday, November 15th. Contact your child’s teacher for their schedule.
Please observe the following guidelines during your visit:
Please sign in at the front desk in the lobby before visiting your child’s classroom
- Visit only your child’s classroom
- Please limit your visit to twenty (20) minutes
- Please do not schedule your visit during your child’s lunch
- Please do not attempt to have a conference with the teacher during your visit
- We prefer that pre-school children not accompany parents during classroom visits as it may disrupt learning Have a great month!
- I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving with family and friends!
