The Olympic Spirit
Richer Elementary kicked off its Reading Olympics Feb. 7 with the passing of the Reading Olympics torch, a history of the Olympics, some new songs, and a reading challenge. Below are highlights of the Reading Olympics Opening Ceremonies, including a video of a new school song performed by Verrill Edwardsen’s second-grade class.

Idiom Parade
Richer Elementary fourth-graders dressed up as their favorite idioms Jan. 14 and taught their younger schoolmates about the wacky phrases during the annual fourth-grade vocabulary parade. Students dressed up and acted out their favorite sayings, walked the halls of the school, then gathered for an all-school meeting where they took to the stage with their carefully crafted costumes. Shown are some highlights of the event.

UVA Cavalier Canaan Severin visits fourth-graders

Fourth-graders at Richer Elementary learned about teamwork, sportsmanship and the importance of doing well in school from a very special visitor Dec. 19.

University of Virginia Cavaliers sophomore wide receiver Canaan Severin –  who played football at Marlborough High School – popped in on the school to visit a couple of his former coaches and chat with Richer fourth-graders.

Richer Assistant Principal Robert Skaza and physical education teacher Dan Rudzinsky – who both helped coach Severin at Marlborough prior to his transfer to the Worcester Academy – introduced their former player. Walking with one crutch due to recent surgery to repair a knee injury, Severin talked about his NFL aspirations and the importance of education.

“I was recruited by about 25 or 30 colleges,” he said. “The first question I was asked at every single interview is ‘How are your grades?’”

Severin said he chose UVA because it was one of the top public colleges in the country. “Like my dad said, even if you don’t make the NFL, you’ll have a degree from one of the best schools in the country,” he explained.

On Sept. 20, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released its 2013 information about school accountability, how our school is performing relative to other schools, and the progress our school is making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students. To access the Richer parent letter (three languages) regarding this information and the district- and school-level DESE “report cards,” see our NCLB Report Card webpage.

Parents: Starting with the 2012-13 school year, the district implemented a standards-based report card system. These report cards differ from those in the past; the new report cards reflect the Common Core standards embedded in the district’s new curriculum. Feedback on the report cards will be collected periodically to identify and develop revisions as needed. To access a parent pamphlet on the standards-based report cards, click:  English - Portuguese - Spanish. To access a glossary of terms and phrases, click: EnglishPortugueseSpanish.
