Principal Newsletter for October     



Dear Ritzman RAM tastic Community,
We have had a great start to the school year with our online, distant learning! Our RAMtastic staff and students have shown they can rise up to the technology challenges. I am so proud of the hard work they have put into this new way of learning. 
 
As we continue with distance learning, remind your child to take good care of their Chromebooks. They should be charged nightly and should never have food or drink around them.  If you have any technology concerns, please be sure to call the school or stop by Ritzman on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 9:00 and 1:00pm for tech support.

Even though we are virtual, October has some events. Parent Teacher Conference Night is October 8th from 3:00 p.m. until 6:30 pm. Parents and Guardians may contact the teacher directly to sign up. Principals will be on an open Google Meet if anyone would like to stop to say hello or ask a quick question. The week of October 19th is Spirit Week. Monday is crazy hair day, Tuesday is Sport Day, Wednesday is School Spirit day, Thursday is Pajama day and Friday is Halloween Costume day. (No masks or accessories)  On Friday evening at 5:00p.m., there will be a Ritzman School Harvest Drive By Parade in our parking lot. Parents and students will drive through the parking lot and receive Halloween Treats from Staff and PTO. Families will also be able to sign up for their PTO membership. Let Mrs. McIntosh know if you need the form so that you may sign up and join Ritzman's PTO. The last important date in October is that Marking Period 1 ends on Friday, October 23rd.

In speaking about the end of the 1st marking period, the Board Of Education is making decisions soon about reopening or staying remote for the 2nd marking period. It is vital to have all parents and guardians complete a parent survey for each of their children. Here is a Parent Survey   link and you can also access from the main website at akronschools.com.

As always, thank you for your support and patience while we navigate this new way of learning together.   
Love Ya!
Mrs. M
