Handprint Updates

Good news!  We saved all but 10 handprints! The handprints are ready to pick up after 4 p.m. today and throughout the holiday weekend. Please review the pictures and find the panel containing your handprints.  The boxes will be designated with the panel they are located on.


PLEASE review the following:
*  Please be mindful when taking them out of boxes. Please put them back in the boxes you found them for the next person.

*PLEASE only take your own tile or ones you are responsible for. If you collecting for someone else, PLEASE communicate with them so they know you have theirs before you take it.

*The "R"s are gathered to be on display in our new campus.

*We did incur a cost to remove the tiles. Please consider a donation to Richland. Venmo @Richland-FORClub

*Tiles will be out in front of Richland all weekend and Monday.  Collection of these tiles are our community's responsibility and we cannot be responsible for lost, broken or stolen tiles. Thank you for your understanding. 

Our Mission

The Richland staff believes that it is our responsibility to teach a rigorous and relevant curriculum to all students in a close partnership between home, school and the community. The effective implementation of this philosophy will instill in our students an appreciation and desire to learn and work hard, the ability to think creatively and critically, and the belief that they will be successful in their future years of schooling and chosen careers.
