Supporting our Ritchen students and families
Student/family to school connection is the number 1 predictor of student success! Here at Ritchen, we are all about making connections and establishing caring relationships.
We are going through some changes with the occurrence of the Coronavirus, but it should not stop us from staying connected. I will post resources on this page weekly. Students are able to request a meeting with me-If you would like to meet, please complete the "check in" form below and I will send you an email to your school email address and give you directions on how to use the zoom app (on your iPad) for our meet up.
Great News! My Canvas Counseling page is up and running. Please check your email for the invite, or ask your teacher for the link. There are many ways to get and stay connected with me!
