Welcome and Thank You

Welcome to the Richmond R-XVI School District!  
SUMMER!!!  Caps and Gowns are now put away and Diplomas are in the hands of our graduates!!!  Teachers now move on to teacher training at their Teaching Institute and summer classes at Grad-School!!!  Many will also plan family vacations to visit family and locations or activities of interest.  Others will be actively engaged in summer sports or outdoor activities.
The year has flown by with many successes!  Thank you to our students, teachers, parents and patrons of the community.  The students for being diligent in their studies.  The teachers for making a difference in the lives of our students.  The parents for their support and enthusiasm for our schools.  And the patrons for the financial support that a public school district requires.  We know that our community is a better place to live when the schools are strong and successful.  Again, Thank You for your continued support!
AND BEST WISHES FOR OUR GRADUATES!  Go forth and do well  in your future.  We know you are going to accomplish great things!
