this season, give when you shop


‘Tis the season to overspend, but you can feel better about it by using Amazon Smile, which donates a percentage of whatever you spend to Ritchie Park.

The easiest way is to shop on Amazon as usual, but don’t click “buy.” Instead, place the items in your cart, and then type “” into your browser. Your page will refresh and you’ll be in Amazon Smile. Now go to your cart and complete your purchase. Done.


the 2018-19 book fair was a huge success

Thank you to Norean Qadir and Sally Rahnama for organizing this amazing event, and for all the hard work it took to make it happen. Thanks also to the parents, grandparents and special friends who volunteered, and a special thank you to the law office of Louis Leibowitz for sponsoring Storytelling Night.

Check out the great photos of the Fair and Storytelling night taken by Fernando Montilla.

The PTA Grandparents and Special Friends program is a way for grandparents—and those who play that special type of role—to connect with our school and community.
