Tuesday’s Annual RES Family Snow Tubing Event has Been Postponed to February 6th!

Tuesday’s Annual RES Family Snow Tubing

Event has Been Postponed to February 6th!


 Due to the January 30th school cancellation, the annual PTO sponsored RES family snow tubing event held Yawgoo Valley Tubing Park will now be moved to Tuesday February 6th. *All families will keep their same time slots.

**If you missed your chance to register previously or would like a second chance to tube, we have opened up online sign ups for the 5-6:00 PM  time slot on February 6th. Registration will be open all week, don’t miss your last chance to get in on this event!

 registrations will take place online through Community Pass at  https://register.communitypass.net/reg/index.cfm

  • Cost per tuber is $7.50
  • Minimum 42″ height requirement for each tuber
  • No non RES friends or extended family members please; the RES PTO covers half the cost of each tuber and tubing slots are limited. Parents and siblings of students are, however, welcome.
  • Your payment will serve as your registration confirmation.
  • The PTO is unable to accommodate requests to switch time slots once your payment is made.
  • The funds raised by various PTO events/fundraisers subsidize the cost of this event.
  • Scholarships are available. If needed please contact Mrs. Martin.
  • Inclement weather policy: If school is closed on the day  that you are registered for, the event will not take place. Make up dates will be held the following Monday and Tuesday on February  5th and 6th and will correspond  with your  original registered day of the week and time.
  • This is a non-refundable event. The Richmond Elementary  School PTO reserves tubing passes with Yawgoo Valley based on event registration and is therefore unable to refund money in the event that a registrant(s) does not show up .

For more information on event times, location, and requirements, check out our flier below or contact Lisa Parr at richmondschoolpto@gmail.com

*And don’t forget to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to one of our local organizations assisting those in need!

EnRichmond 2018

Preparation for the EnRichmond class schedule is underway!


“EnRichmond,” is an after school enrichment program open to all RES students that offers multiple avenues for our children to explore and gain experience in supplemental areas of interest.


 * The PTO is currently looking for instructors to teach a class, once per week for a four week session. *

Do you have an area of expertise, a passion, a favorite hobby, or special skill which might enrich the lives of our students?  It could be something from the arts, sciences, trades, sports, hobbies, etc., which with you have knowledge in and are willing to share with our students.

Classes will meet once per week (on Tuesday or Wednesday) for 4 weeks beginning March 6, 2018. Classes take place at RES immediately following school dismissal and end at 4:30pm. Instructors can indicate the class size and grade level of participants. Supplies and materials will be provided (or reimbursed) by the PTO.  Small stipends are also available for interested formal instructors. Some examples of class ideas are: carpentry/woodworking (building wooden toys), paper craft and origami, drawing lessons, drama, music, crafting, yoga, IT focused, STEM focused etc. We are only limited by your imagination.

Note: Mrs. LePree is also looking for a high school or parent volunteer to help with a drama production.

If you would like more information, or already know you are able to volunteer your time and experience, please contact Julie McGovern (email:vicepresidentrespto@gmail.com) by Friday, January 19th. Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

A BIG Thank You for Making the Ice Cream Social a Huge Success!

We would like to thank the Richmond Elementary School staff and all of our RES families for making the Ice Cream Social a huge success yet again!

The Toe Jam Puppet Band, Pack 1 Richmond Cub Scouts, Keri Edmunds for school apparel, and all of our volunteers (too numerous to mention)  made the evening special for all in attendance. We would like to send an extra special thank you to all of the Richmond Elementary School faculty for gloving up and serving all of our families.

Together we can make a huge difference for the AB Freeman Elementary School in Houston, TX! 

Together we can make a huge difference for the

 AB Freeman Elementary School in Houston, TX! 

Unfortunately, AB Freeman Elementary and their families have been greatly effected by  Hurricane Harvey.

So, how can we help?

Richmond Elementary School has adopted a classroom to provide children with essentials for school!

We will be collecting monetary donations at the Ice Cream Social. All proceeds from the event will be used to buy supplies that AB Freeman has a requested need for (Crayons, pencils, notebooks, underwear, socks, etc…). The RES PTO will purchase these items on Amazon ( Free shipping) and send them directly to AB Freeman Elementary School.

What an amazing difference we can make together!
