"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need". -Cicero

Our beautiful garden continues to thrive! I am proud to announce that the final installation of our new learning garden will be on April 7, 2016.  Thanks to the good people from SEEDS, The Kitchen Community, Home Depot, and our students and parent volunteers, a portion of our garden will be transformed into an outdoor classroom.  Teachers will now have the added ability to hold class outdoors! Feel free to stop by atany time from 9-12pm to lend a hand.

May 13th Silent Auction
The Walk-a-Thon may be done, but the Fundraising is just beginning! 

Last Friday all Richland students had a blast participating in the second annual Walk-a-Thon. Now we are asking for 100% participation to help raise funds for the library and for school programs. Our goal is $50 per student. As always, any and all donations are very much appreciated! 
Prizes: students who raise $50 or more will receive an awesome t-shirt. Our top fundraisers (one in the lower (TK-2) and one in the upper grades (3-6)) will win a $100 Target gift card.
Each student received a collection envelope and pledge sheet before the event. Please return the completed form and envelope with donations to your teacher or to the Main Office. Pledges can be made online on the Booster Club site. Ask friends and family if they would like to support your student and Richland! Pledges are due by Friday, April 8. 
Richland's Silent Auction is a fun event Booster hosts every May. In order for it to be successful, we need your help:

When you are shopping and eating at your favorite stores and restaurants, take a moment and ask for a donation. We take donations of gift baskets, gift certificates, event tickets, theme park tickets, etc.

We are also looking for volunteers to help solicit items from our on-going list of vendors and help run the auction the day of the event. 

More information to come in the months ahead. If you have any questions or have a donation, please contact Julie Malloy at
or 310-779-7730
