Dear Riccardi Elementary School Families,
I hope you had a peaceful January and a good start to 2021!
This month, the PTA is holding a COVID-friendly P.A.R.P. (“Parents as Reading Partners”) program beginning on January 29th and concluding on February 12th. Look out for a packet with information including a PARP BINGO sheet to be shared with your child! We are very excited to be able to encourage reading in this way, especially this year. Thank you to our PTA for organizing and running this important and fun-filled program. Pick up a good book and read, read, read!
Report cards and quarterly awards (Gr. 2-6) will be sent home on Thursday, February 4th for students in Cohort A & C. Students in Cohort B will receive their report cards and quarterly awards on Friday, February 5th. Report cards and Quarterly Awards of students learning 100% remotely will be mailed home on Friday, February 5th. Through these challenging times, I know we are all continuing to work hard to meet our students’ academic and social needs as best as possible. I continue to encourage an on-going line of communication between home and school.
Pre-K and Kindergarten Registration for students across all district elementary schools will take place February 22nd – 25th at the Registrar’s office located at Cahill Elementary School from 9 am until 3 pm. Included in this month’s Riccardi Review is a form to be filled out and returned to any district building if your child is eligible for Pre-K or Kindergarten. This will allow the district to add your child’s name to their mailing list so that you receive a registration packet and instructions prior to the registration dates. If you know anyone whose child may be eligible, please feel free to share this information with them. For more information, please see the attached form.
Schools will be closed on Monday, February 15th in observance of Presidents’ Day. There will be no remote learning on this day.
Enjoy the brisk winter weather and have a fabulous February!
