EBULLETIN for the week of April 15-19, 2013
*With a change in weather comes a change in wardrobe. Parents, please review the Richards dress code with your child. A reminder to our young men that shirts are to be tucked in pants, and pants are to be belted if they are too large to stay up on one’s hips. Students, please take pride in your personal appearance.
Richards will be holding a dance this Friday, April 19, 2013, from 7 pm – 9 pm. Cost for admission is $5.00
Also, the RMS PTSA will be holding our last general meeting on April 23, 2013, starting at 7 pm.

Please see the attached flyer . The Richards Green Club is asking for any perennial plants and top soil to construct and enrich the beds. Your donations are most appreciated.
Pardon our Progress. Construction update: The bathrooms by the cafeteria are now under construction as are the steps by the football field. Construction workers are not scheduled to work during CRCT testing.
To ensure the safety of students, please follow two procedures: (1) those students who walk home are to leave the campus immediately at dismissal each afternoon. Only students with scheduled events that are supervised may remain on campus after dismissal; (2) those who wait for parent pick-up may not walk to the Sue Mack Drive by the construction site to wait on rides. Students cannot be seen by staff, and construction workers are still on site at this time. Students are to be picked up in the bus loop or may meet their rides on Nancy Street. Parents, please review these safety procedures with your child.
*Parents: yearbooks are $50. Checks may be written to RICHARDS MIDDLE SCHOOL and given to Mrs. Cowart, Room 305.
