RAS has once again partnered with the United Way to offer a Freedom Schools summer reading program this year!

Freedom Schools provide a 5-week, safe, nurturing summer environment where scholars are valued, celebrated, and given opportunities to learn the pleasure of reading. Scholars improve their ability to read, connect to their culture, develop positive relationships with Servant Leader Interns (College Students), increase their self-esteem, and develop a positive attitude toward academic achievement. Additionally, scholars participate in community service and social action projects.

Complete the attached enrollment form and submit it to the school office, or contact Ms. Mosley at 937-586-9756 if you need more information. Space is limited, so don't wait!

Richard Allen Schools understand a school emergency can occur at any time.  As parents, know that Richard Allen Schools are proactively prepared to respond to school safety emergencies. 

Richard Allen Schools’ preparation is guided by a School Safety Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) that provides detailed response directives to facilitate and achieve safety for students and staff. 

The School Safety Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) can be found attached here for your review.

From the Principal

Spring is here and excitement is in the air as we continue to have a wonderful year of learning here at Richard Allen. As always, we greatly appreciate the combined efforts of all as we supported our students in successfully meeting the highest attendance record building wide during Terra Nova testing.

As we enter the month of April, our teachers and staff continue to introduce and review rigorous academic skills and content across all grade levels. With roughly 2 weeks remaining before our Ohio End of Year testing weeks, it is imperative that our students are present each day and eager to actively participate in applying the purposeful teaching and learning taking place.

With the end of the school year quickly approaching, we want to thank each of you for your ongoing support of our students, our teachers and staff, and our mission here at Richard Allen. This year has been a success due to the collective efforts of all in providing opportunities for our students to succeed and grow.

Ms. Kerley
