Dear Fabulous Ritzman Family,
I can't believe we are in the last month of Winter. Thank goodness the groundhog is working in our favor for Spring to come on time. We are also deep into teaching and learning so that students will be performing their best! Students need to be ready to learn each day when they come to school with all of their school materials.
We also have a couple of events happening this month as well. PTO is having a skating party on Wednesday, February 7th at Springfield Roller Rink. PTO is also selling Carnations that will be distributed on Valentine’s Day. Students will not be celebrating Valentine's Day with parties this year. We are only allowed two celebrations in Elementary and we celebrate Halloween and Christmas. Speaking of Valentine's Day, we love and are grateful for every parent and guardian that brings their child to school on time each day. Mrs. Sabik, our Dean, is giving out special rewards for all students who are on track and who are not tardy to school. Our school counselor, Mrs. Myers is also helping us to celebrate Black History Month this February. Each day a special person is celebrated on Morning Announcements and throughout the day. Thanks Mrs. Myers!
Other important upcoming dates include Days of No School, our Parent Teacher Conference Night and our Annual Math Night. On Friday February 16th and Monday the 19th, there is no school. We are out to celebrate our US President's Day. The next parent teacher conference night is Thursday, February 22nd. Be sure to contact your child's teacher if you are interested in a conference. Finally, this year is a Leap Year, providing a once-every-four-year opportunity to celebrate the extra day on February 29th. We will be celebrating by hosting our annual family math night, Leaping into Math, on Thursday, February 29th beginning at 5:00pm. Please be sure to RSVP using this Google Form.
We wish everyone a great month of celebrations! We also welcome everyone to come and celebrate with us at the above mentioned events. Thank you to parents and students who do their best to meet our school expectations; Respect, Responsibility, Ready to Learn and Safe! You are RAMtastic!
