Principal's All Call February 24, 2020
Posted on 02/24/2020

Good Evening Parents and Guardians,

This is Mrs. McIntosh calling with our weekly message at 6. 

We are back to a full 5 day week of school.  MAP testing will begin tomorrow and continue through March 6th. There are a total of 2 tests (Reading & Math) your child will take within these two weeks. They are not scheduled for testing every day. Ask your child’s homeroom teacher if you would like more information. We need students though, to get plenty of rest at night and arrive to school on time, 8:15 a.m. everyday.

On Monday, the Akron After School Tutoring program will begin for selected 2nd and 3rd graders. Students are to be picked up from the program by 4:00 p.m. daily, Monday through Thursday.

On Wednesday, PTO will be having an “Urban Air” Fundraiser.

On Thursday, we will be having Parent Teacher interim conferences from 3:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. There will be a PTO bake sale during conferences.

On Friday, we will have our February perfect attendance breakfast recognition.

Here are a couple of other school reminders.

5th grade Link up permission forms are due this week. Please make sure your child returns their form to Mrs. Heinl.

It is also very important to review your child’s Home Access on-line at home on a regular basis. We want to make sure your child is receiving an excellent education at Ritzman.

Students also have a new on-line book app. Before, students could access through their portal and go into “Overdrive”, now the app is called “SORA”.  Ask your child about this new app in their portal. Here is also a link they can use to access a video to preview SORA, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RttV8GjO9uJSsq9GJ3HAW_n_1uG5OP54/view

Here are some upcoming PTO Events:

Urban air fundraiser is on Wednesday, the 26th.  PTO will be offering baked goods for purchase during conferences. If you are able to donate baked goods, please drop them off during the morning or during the day on Thursday by 2:00p.m. One final announcement is that box tops are due at the end of the week next week. Please continue to scan the box tops but turn in any clipped box tops you have on hand in to the school. Thank you for supporting PTOs fundraisers.

Look who is coming… Jim “Basketball” Jones is coming to Ritzman on March 9th.  Students will attend an assembly during the day that will be tailored for students. In the evening of March 9th, we are inviting parents and students to attend another session with Jim “Basketball” Jones here at Ritzman. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend

 

Remember, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call and speak to your child’s teacher or you can call me at 330-761-7903 or email me at imcintos@apslearns.org
