New! RCES PTA Brag Board


I know…we tell our kids not to brag, but we'd like to lift-up our school community and recognize people who make an impact at our school! If you'd like to recognize teachers, staff members, or peers for a job well done, please brag about it on our new brag board! Your post can even be anonymous.


This will be a place for us to share fun and positive comments to reflect on throughout the year! We already have several people bragging on our PTA Facebook Page. #BragAboutYourTeacher


Winter Coat Donation Drive!


Beginning April 1, please drop-off gently used winter coats to the school. There will be a collection box in the vestibule until Friday, April 18.

The coats will be provided to students next winter as needed. Thank you in advance for your generosity!


PTA Funds at work


Fulfilling Classroom Wish Lists


PTA Members requested a “Teacher Wish List” be created for the PTA Board to consider funding. Staff representatives for each grade level discussed the items teachers needed to support their classrooms. Based on these discussions, the PTA Board approved funding for gift cards to be provided for use throughout the school year as needs arise. Each grade level, specials teachers
(PE, Music, Art), AIG, ESL, ECS, Media, and Special Education were all provided gift cards from the PTA to fulfill their wish lists!


Staff Gifts


Richland Creek teachers and staff received a holiday surprise before Winter Break! All staff received a personal gift card with a special thank you message from the PTA.


"As we reflected on all of the reasons to be thankful during this holiday season, we want you to know that we are grateful for your hard work and dedication to our school. Please accept this gift card as a small oken of our appreciation. Thank you for everything you do for the students at Richland Creek Elementary School! "
-The Richland Creek PTA
