Working with Jon Gailmor on Our New School Song!

      Fourth graders had the honor of working with Jon Gailmor this Monday.  Jon Gailmor is a talented songwriter, singer and educator.  We invited Jon to RES to help us write a new school song!  Fourth graders focused on our school-wide beliefs: Respect Yourself, Respect Others, and Respect Your Environment. They thought about how these words that we live by make Richmond Elementary School such an incredible community and place to be.  Fourth graders did an amazing job!

Studying Vermont Through Field Trips

We have had an incredible week filled with learning and fun!  Our trip to Montpelier brought us to the State House and the Vermont Historical Society Museum.  We also visited the Audubon Center in Huntington to learn about Vermont's maple sugaring industry.  Of course, no Vermont study would be complete without a stop at the Ben & Jerry's Factory!
