What makes Richmond special?

As soon as you enter Richmond Elementary, you will feel the caring community that has been nurtured here over the years. As one of the smallest elementary schools in Appleton, we are able to build relationships between students, families, and staff to create a family always working together to help students grow and succeed. Whether it is working with our Parent Teacher Organization or becoming a volunteer at school, our school community has embraced service to help our school. From a fall festival to a spring carnival, our families provide many opportunities to bring together the Richmond families to celebrate our special community.

Literacy for Life

Students and staff remain committed to reading in school and out. Each and every day you will see a focus on reading. Not only will classrooms be full of readers, but you will also see them thinking, writing and talking about what they have read. If you walked into our school and asked any students about what book they are currently reading, you would receive a great number of answers and you would be able to feel some of that excitement we have built around literacy.

Character Counts Character Counts

Richmond has a long tradition of celebrating the six pillars of character: fairness, respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, citizenship and caring. Whether it comes through a daily announcement or a quarterly celebration, we honor our students who follow our expectations and show great character at Richmond. 

A School of Opportunities

We are fortunate to have committed staff members and families who are dedicated to providing a variety of opportunities to enrich student learning beyond the classroom.
