Richland Elementary Stampede

November 2015

We have a lot to be grateful for!

November promises us rain showers and cool air, time to celebrate with families, and a moment to pause and be grateful for all we have.  We are so lucky to be a part of this fabulous Richland community! On the back of the Stampede, you will find our Richland Calendar of Events for November including Parent Teacher Conferences, early release week, and Thanksgiving break.   Join your child and stay involved in their education.  We are all a team working together to provide the very best educational experience for your children… another reason to be grateful!

Important things to Remember…


Parent Teacher conferences are upon us! Monday, 11/16  is a Non-student day for conferences. Tues, 11/17-Fri, 11/20 will be early release days at 1:25 pm (Kinder am at 10:45 a.m.)  so teachers can have these valuable meetings to discuss your child’s progress.


The Speak Up Survey is in full swing. Please take a moment to answer the survey to assist our district with important technology decisions.  The link is……


Traffic Update:  A BIG thank you to those of you who brought patience and understanding while the road construction was underway.  The hardest tasks are complete and we await final paving, striping and… what we have been waiting for… the traffic light.  All should be complete and working by the end of the month! What an improvement it will make to the safety of our community. 

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families:  Book Club is well under way and we are enjoying sharing and learning together.  Parents are invited to join in any time. Our next Book Club is Friday, November 6th at 8:45 in Room 20.  More books are available!  Next meeting:  “Begin with the end in mind”.


Mustangs live the Healthy Way!


We pride ourselves in teaching children to make good choices when it comes to nutrition and we work together to follow the District Wellness Policy.  We ask that parents support  us by celebrating birthdays with NONFOOD items. Additionally, parents are welcome to have lunch with their children but ask that food be eaten at the designated lunch benches and bring food ONLY for your child. With allergies, illness, and personal beliefs, we cannot offer children food without parent consent.  Thanks for your understanding. We want to keep all kids safe and healthy.


Enjoy the beginnings of the holiday season, cool weather, and the chance to spend time with family and your beautiful growing children!         

With gratitude,


Julie Barbara and Lena Martinez
