Friday, February 24

Our Fun Run program is finally here! The Boosterthon team will kicked off the program Wednesday with an awesome Pep Rally to get our students fired up to help Satchel Ford. Please support us by asking friends and family to pledge your child for the Fun Run. (Remember, students will run 30-35 laps.) Enter all pledges at funrun.com, and your student will be rewarded the very next day. Plus, your student will receive a FREE prize just for being registered on funrun.com!

Reading Challenge

"Scoop Up a Good Book!"  is our current school-wide reading challenge. Students who meet their goal will not only participate in a Baskin-Robbins ice cream truck party, but also will receive a free ticket to the Fireflies baseball game on May 22 at 7:05 p.m. and qualify for other prizes to be given away. The last day to turn in completed reading logs is March 24. Remember to read every day and complete your reading log!

Richland One Hurricane Make-Up Days

Richland One students will go to school January 13, March 31 and April 17 to make up the three days they missed when schools were closed October 5-7.

Because schools were closed for three days, some adjustments had to be made to marking periods and report card dates. Those changes are reflected on the 2016-2017 academic calendar.
