Celebrating Inclusion
Inclusion, one of Richer's five core values, was celebrated at the April 8 all-school assembly with a slideshow of student activities, the singing of the school song, and a special fourth-grade performance of Peter Amidon's "Brotherhood and Sisterhood" accompanied by Assistant Principal Robert J. Skaza on guitar. Good job, everyone!

Happy Birthday, Richer!
On October 28, Richer Elementary celebrated its 50th birthday with a day of fun, festivities and friendship. The day started with an all-school assembly, after which faculty, staff and students walked outside and encircled the school for a school hug, a balloon release, and the singing of "Happy Birthday" to their school.

At 1:00, a formal birthday ceremony was held in the school courtyard. It included guest speakers, a state proclamation, the burying of a time capsule, and the planting of a pear tree. Following the ceremony, community readers visited classrooms and read to Richer students.

The celebration continued into the evening with a communitywide party for Richer families. Popcorn, cotton candy, tattoos, message writing, backpack and water bottle give-aways, pizza, and a raffle highlighted the night for the hundreds of families in attendance.

A HUGE thank you goes out to Classic Pizza I for donating the pizza to feed our 900 birthday party dinner guests!
