Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thanksgiving break is around the corner! - This week will be a short week. Students will have classes on Monday and Tuesday only. Thanksgiving break for staff and students will be Wednesday the 25th, Thursday the 26th and Friday the 27th. The secretary will also be on break the same 3 days. Students will report back to classes on Monday, November 30th.

The PTO Food Drive was a SUCCESS! Thank you for your donations to PTO food drive. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for everyone who donated for the food drive and the volunteers who purchased food, sorted and organized for our Ritzman families. During this time, it means so much for families who are struggling to work and pay bills.

PTO is now offering a virtual Santa’s Secret Shop for your child. Every year our PTO volunteers set up and facilitate Santa Shop at school so that students can experience the joy of shopping, wrapping and giving gifts to their beloved family members. Santa Shop’s virtual shopping days are November 30th through December 4th.  The items will be delivered to Ritzman for easy pick-up. I am attaching a flyer for you to review. I will send another reminder before November 30th, but put it on your calendar.

Finally, I wanted to make sure you may have heard from the news or social media, Dr. James is delaying Remote+ at this time. This is due to the stay home order and the increase of Covid cases in our community. The district will begin planning for remote+ after the 1st semester is over, around mid-January.

Here are a few quick announcements.

  • Check out this video that was just released from the district. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Innzo15bx-s&feature=youtu.be   After Hours support continues Monday through Thursday from 4:00-7:00 pm and there are limited Saturday hours, too. 
  • Tech support is Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 until 1:00pm Our tech support is at another location on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is better to come Monday, Wednesday or Friday to have your tech issue completely resolved.
  • Keep reminding your children to take good care of their Chromebooks.
  • The Reading Night site is still available to view. Here is the site link: https://sites.google.com/apslearns.org/ritzmanreadingnight/home

If you need anything, please email me with any questions at imcintos@apslearns.org or call Ritzman at 330-761-7903.  I wish you and your family the BEST Thanksgiving this year. Remember to focus on the positive and enjoy time together.

Love Ya and hope to see ya soon!

Mrs. M
