PTA GOAL

Our goal is to help the faculty and administration provide a great education and experience for all students at Richards.  

What We've Been Doing

  1. Before school began, we hosted a welcome back breakfast for faculty and staff.

  2. We set up a table during verification to recruit new members, sell spirit items, and talk with parents. 

  3. Members provided snacks and drinks to students during the tailgate at the first football game. We also sold hot dogs and spirit wear.

  4. We purchased items for snack bags for faculty during a Staff Development Day.

  5. Icey Girl was on campus for a fundraiser at the end of the first 9 weeks. 

  6. So far during the 2021-2022 school year, the PTA has filled the following faculty/staff requests:

  • crayons and colored pencils 

  • 200 earbuds for student use

  • chess boards for the Chess Club 

  • provided funding for startup materials for the Guidance Office clothing bank including socks, underwear, hangers, and plastic bags

  • a class set of the book Animal Farm
