  2. Welcome to a New School Year!

    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 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!
    -Mr. MacJanet and Mrs. Alcox
  3. We are RE-ORGANIZING Our Classes

  4. Richmond Street School is growing! As you may have noticed, our classes are filled with enthusiastic Raptors. We are excited to add new families to our community and look forward to getting to know each other better. As a result of our swelling numbers, we will be opening another classroom and adding new staff. This means re-organizing class lists in a number of places. We appreciate your understanding and support as we find the best combinations of students and staff for learning. It confirms what we have always known...Richmond Street School is a great place to be!
