Well it is May and our last newsletter. The school year is almost over.
I want to wish our Rockets the best of luck in their upcoming STAAR tests. All the hard work has been done, just go in and enjoy the test. You and your teachers have worked hard together all year. Go Rockets!!!!!
Once the exams are done, come join the PTA at our annual Family Picnic on May 19th 6pm-8pm at Richland Park. We will provide pizza for $1 per slice and free cookies on a first come first served basis. We'll have a bounce house and fun free activities for kids! Let’s have some fun together.
Thank you to this year’s board. All of you have been very helpful and have done so much for the school. You are a great group and it has been a privilege to work with you.
I hope, as your PTA, that we have been able to do at least one useful thing for all our Rockets this year.
I have enjoyed serving as your President. Thank you for all your support this year.
Have a fantastic summer!

Recent Changes to the Budget
Recess Balls: Thank you for voting to help the school purchase balls and bags for use at recess for all our Richland Rockets. You helped purchase these items in a couple of ways: 1) fundraising at our yearly events and 2) by collecting Labels for Education points for the school. The Labels for Education points were used to duplicate some of recess equipment purchased by the school.
Watch D.O.G.S Start-up Kit: We also voted to purchase the starter kit for the Watch D.O.G.S. program which will start next year at Richland Elementary. Dads/Grandads/Father Figures this program is aimed at you. See: www.fathers.com/watchdogs for more information. Email email@example.com to express your interest in this program.
