Principal's All Call 10-10-22
Posted on 10/14/2022

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for another excellent week at school and preparing your children for learning.

I want to begin by apologizing about picture retake day.The New date is November 4th. On November 4th, students who were absent or need to retake their pictures will have an opportunity to do so. Thanks for your understanding and patience. All Fall Lifetouch pictures were sent home on Thursday, October 6th.

Here are the reminders for this week on our call.


Starting on Tuesday, October 11th, Ritzman PTO will be having their Scholastic Book Fair.  The fair will end on Friday, October 14th. Here is a letter about the Bookfair. The scholastic book fair,  homepage website is:

https://www.scholastic.com/bf/ritzmancommunitylearningctr

PTO encourages everyone to preview the site to get an idea of what the student (s) want AND come to the PTO meeting on Wednesday, the 12th, for parents and students to view ahead of time so the 14th is much smoother with the grandparents. The E-wallet (We REALLY want parents to try to use this and teachers can set one up too ——for parents to donate and/or for students that may bought have money for a book) Here is the site for the E-Wallet  https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/articles/ewallet.html

If you have any questions, please email them at [email protected].

 


Friday is Grandparents’ Day at Ritzman. Here is a letter about Grandparents Day 10-14-22. Grandparents will go to their grandchild’s classroom at 1:30 for a short visit. They may visit until 2:30, the end of the school day. During this time, they may shop at the Book Fair. Finally, a copy of the letter will be coming home so that guardians may notify their child’s teacher if their grandparents are signing them out early or leaving with them.


In other news, we are continuing the Stay in the Game Attendance program. In order for Ritzman to remain a school of excellence, we must reduce the number of chronically absent students this school year. The absences are accumulated whether your child has excused or unexcused absences. It is critical to call the school each time your child is absent and bring in doctor’s office notes for their appointments, too. Thank you for your attention in this matter.


Here is the menu for the month of October If your child would like to eat a school lunch or breakfast. Remember that if your child would like to  pack a lunch, they may do that, too.


Other reminders include the following:


ALL children should also have their Chromebooks charged at home and brought to school with them. The expectation is their device is to be charged nightly.

There are also Chromebook fees this year. These are charged for damages to the Chromebook caused by an accident or on purpose. The fees can range from $20 up to $200 for full replacement of the Chromebook.


The COVID-19 Safety and Procedures Questions and Answers 2022-23 School Year document is a reference for families.


Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about school. Call the school at 330-761-7903 or email me at [email protected].


Have a GREAT week!

Love Ya!
