This year is moving along quickly, and Spring is here! I am deeply thankful for the collective talent and energy of our faculty, staff, and students. I am also thankful for the enduring and essential contributions of our parents and community. With Spring, comes testing season. Our 9th and 10th graders have completed the FSA ELA Writing and Writing Retakes. More information about FSA ELA testing will be forthcoming.
Rickards High School is unique in its breadth of interests and range of talents, and for its mirroring of the complex blend of culture, background, and experiences that are increasingly the hallmarks of both our local and global communities. As educators, we strive daily to continue to make Rickards High a tremendous place to work and learn.
Earning the right to call ourselves a great school will require continuous determination and commitment from our teachers, staff, parents, and community, to see that all students, regardless of who they are and how they come to us, leave us better prepared to meet the next set of life’s challenges. Parents and Guardians, our commitment must also include the development of the curiosity, character, and conscientiousness that will prepare them not only for personal success, but for productive and compassionate citizenship as well. This is a charge we share as a school and a community.
Wishing everyone a happy, fun, and safe spring break. School will re-open on March 20th for faculty and staff. Students will return on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.
