Dear Riccardi Families,

Hello March! I am sure that you are all looking forward to warmer weather as much as I am.

We kicked off February with the PTA’s Pick a Reading Partner (PARP), and I am so proud of those students who participated! Great job reading and filling in your Mario sheets. I send a big thank you to the Riccardi PTA as well as the Cahill, Morse and Jr. High PTAs, particularly Jessica Riozzi, for coordinating this fun-filled event for our students district-wide!

Speaking of PARP, the Riccardi Read-a-thon took place on Friday, February 23 rd and our students had a great day full of reading activities to celebrate the last day of PARP. Thank you to all the staff who took part in organizing this fun event. Thank you to all families and community members who supported the students and raised funds for our PTA!

We all know how unpredictable the weather in March can be, so please continue to send your child to school with adequate winter gear, i.e. coats, hats, gloves, scarves, etc. We will continue to send students outside for recess unless the temperature falls below 20 degrees, factoring in windchill. Let’s hope for sunshine and warmer temperatures!

Spring Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conference Night will take place on Thursday, March 7th from 5 pm to 8 pm by appointment. I strongly believe that communication between families and teachers is key to students’ success. Teachers will reach out to individual families to schedule conferences, but please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher via email if you are interested in a conference.

Friday, March 8th will be a half day for all students for Saugerties CSD Staff Development Day. Riccardi students will be dismissed at 11 am.

Save the Date! Spring Pictures and the 6th grade group photo will be taken on Thursday, March 21st. All students will have their picture taken but there is no obligation to order prints. More information will be coming home soon.

Spring Recess is Monday, March 25 – Monday, April 1, 2024. School will be back in session on Tuesday, April 2nd .

Have a wonderful March and Happy Spring!
