Did you like your Connect & Assess Meeting?

Students pose with Richfield STEM School principal Amy Winter

Dear RPS Families,

This year, instead of hosting our traditional open house events at the elementary schools, we implemented Connect & Assess meetings. The intent was to provide teachers and families with more one-on-one time to get to know each other and to get excited for the new school year.

We would love to know your thoughts. Did you enjoy the new format? Are there ways we can improve?

Please complete this brief survey, which will help us plan for next year’s back-to-school events. Please complete the survey by Sunday, Sept. 25.

Thank you — and we look forward to a great year together!

From the staff at:

Centennial Elementary School
The Central Education Center
Richfield Dual Language School
Richfield STEM Elementary School
Sheridan Hills Elementary School
