Richland is an AWESOME school! There are a lot of reasons why this is true. One HUGE reason is because we have AWESOME parents who generously give of their time to invest in their child’s school. Richland could not be what it is without YOU! Please plug-in and volunteer.


SchoolLunchLUNCHROOM VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  You can also have a positive effect on your child’s day by signing up to volunteer in the lunchroom by being a cafeteria volunteer! There are many benefits that this can bring to you and your child. Our goal is to make sure that each child eats lunch in a clean and stress free environment. This is also a great way to see your children, meet their classmates, and keep in the know. We need volunteers from 11:00-1:00 every day. You can volunteer for one shift or both at the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f45a5a72da57-richland13 Contact lunchroom@richlandpto.org if you should have any questions! Thanks for helping make Richland great!

WatchD.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is an innovative program focusing on the prevention of violence in our children’s schools by using the positive influence of fathers. Our mission is to provide an unobtrusive security presence, and to provide a positive and active role-model for children at Richland Elementary.

WatchDOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards or spelling.

If you are unable to spend an entire day, perhaps you can spare a morning or afternoon. Any of the activities that a WatchDOG does throughout a DOG day can be done individually. The WatchD.O.G.S. are also instrumental in many of the special events that are held at Richland Elementary by providing a watchful presence to cooking and grilling out. These events are an excellent way for fathers to act as WatchDOGS if they are unable to spend a day at school.
