  5. Welcome, or welcome back, to Richmond Street Public School! Doesn’t every year /every summer,seem to go by faster and faster? We hope you all had an amazing, relaxing summer filled with great memories and loads of fun!We are so excited to be back. Staff have been in this past week, busily preparing for your child’s year. We welcome new staff and have provided you with a staff list on our school website. We encourage every student to GET INVOLVED! Cross Country will be starting up right away so get those running shoes ready to rock! Parents you are welcome to get involved, too! We need volunteers for our reading programs, for school council, breakfast club and so many other great initiatives. Ask your child’s teacher or check in with us at the office any time.As Raptors, we say we want to “Ignite the Fire”-the fire within all of us to strive, to learn, to be the very best we can be-to ourselves and to each other. Let's have a great year....TOGETHER!
