Based on staff survey data, our District was named a 2021 Star Tribune Top Workplace!
Last week, MDE released the 2020 graduation rate data for schools and districts across the state and we have some exciting news to share!
Reports are submitted weekly from ICS on the progress of the Capital Facilities Projects.
The most unique year, filled with challenges and successes, tears and laughter, distance learning, Google Meets and in-person reunions, has come to a close. Thank you to everyone —students, teachers, staff and families—who navigated the challenges that this year brought with grace and kindness.
Natalie is looking forward to attending the University of Colorado Boulder’s Engineering Honors Program to study Environmental Engineering. She hopes to become an environmental engineer and travel the world working on engineering projects. “Each country has its own unique problems for environmental engineers to solve, so I hope to learn more about different problems around the world."
One of our star senior athletes at RHS, Helen walked into every practice with a positive mindset and the intent to get better. In fact, that’s what she is most proud of. “I know I put a lot of dedication into becoming a better athlete despite how hard practice gets.” During her career at RHS, she has been involved with tennis, cross country, nordic skiing and track, as well as gymnastics.
The future is wide open for Jillian! Her “realistic” goal is to become a high school English teacher. However, she dreams of becoming a writer or an actor, preferably in musical theater. “I’ve had a dream to become an author since elementary school and it has stuck with me ever since.” Even though her dreams of becoming an actor are more recent, she says she would still “drop everything to be on Broadway.”
Joe Carr has been a bright spot in our Richfield community for years. As he graduates this year, he is looking forward to attending Transition Plus at the South Education Center, where he will explore career and other post-secondary options. His dream job is to be a sports play-by-play announcer and if he could meet anyone, it would be Jason Benetti, a Chicago White Sox play-by-play announcer who also has cerebral palsy.
Riley comes from a family of Richfield graduates, including her brother and both parents. “They all had great experiences here and loved it.” Her favorite thing about RHS is the wide range of opportunities, as well as the diversity at the school.
Amara Ramirez is looking forward to attending St. Catherine University this fall and majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics. "My dream job is to become a diabetes care and education specialist," she said.
