Intergenerational Friendships Abound!

Camels Hump Middle School welcomed Richmond residents to their CHC (Camels Hump Collective) groups last Wednesday afternoon. Students had been discussing intergenerational friendships and were interested in hearing about their guests' former schooling, upbringing, lives and hobbies. It was an event enjoyed by all! Thanks to the many residents who joined us!

Cookies and Commercials

Navigator 5th graders having a C & C (cookies and commercials) afternoon with their 2nd grade buddies from Richmond Elementary School. 5th graders made commercials to kick off their argument writing unit.

April Fools Day Fun!

On Monday, Phoenix students enjoyed some April Fools Day fun with “grilled cheese and kool-aid” treats. Really these deceptive treats were cups of red jello and pound cake with orange frosting. Everyone agreed that it was a tasty prank to celebrate the day!


Local Motion, the Town of Richmond, and the Richmond Trails Committee are interested in your feedback. We all want to improve safety and connectivity for those biking and walking between the village, schools, and park & ride.

Please complete this brief survey to share your ideas with us!

Thanks and ride on!
