Hello Ritzman Families,

Welcome to Spring 2022! Sunday was officially the first day of spring!

We hope everyone enjoyed the longer weekend with their children. 

Mr. Canavan, Mrs. Rogers and I enjoyed our time on Saturday with our 4th and 5th grade track students. They represented and performed well. We will have updates on morning announcements this week.

As for students, we all look forward to seeing students back tomorrow on Tuesday, March 22nd.

Here are the school reminders for this week:

Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep, their homework completed, their Chromebook charged and a smile on their face in the morning. It’s important to start children off on a positive note and on time in the mornings.


When dropping off children at the curb in the morning, make sure they are ready to exit the car on the curb side as soon as the car drivers pull up.

This is the last week of our Food Drive. Students may bring in things listed in this Ambassador Flyer.

If your child is sick or going to be absent, please call the main office and leave a message for the secretary, Sheri.

Check your child’s I-Ready minutes and lesson passage rate each week. They are expected to complete 45 minutes in reading and 45 minutes in math.
