It's Always Sunny at RES #resvt #beachday

On Wednesday, RES celebrated lighting our RES light board twice for following our three school-wide expectations of: respecting ourselves, respecting others, and respecting the environment by having an all school beach day celebration! Second graders joined in the fun and dressed in their beach bests! Way to go Richmond scholars!

Mexican food taste test #resvt #Mexico

Tuesday, scholars were transported to Mexico and were able to sample traditional Mexican foods! In correlation with our social studies unit, It's A Small World: Mexico, scholars have been learning, comparing and contrasting their lives to that of people in Mexico. Students were able to sample: tortilla chips, salsa, guacamole, beans, jalapeno peppers, and for the risk takers, habenero peppers! There was also the Mexican staple dessert: chocolate! Many of the reactions to the spicy peppers were priceless, but overall second graders enjoyed sampling Mexican treats!
