Students in the fourth grade were able to explore some of the STEM bins that were bought throughout this year. This is part of our STEM library that all Rickard staff will have access to check out for their classes to use. Mrs. Lippert and Mrs. Carnes received $20,000 from the Northwest North Dakota Community Foundation Grayson Mill Energy STEM Education Fellowship. Thank you for spending the time and effort to purchase and put together these items for our students! This will be an amazing addition to our school!

Schools today face many challenges, not the least of which is communication. Ensuring accurate, timely and trustworthy communications with key stakeholders is integral to supporting student success. Because it is so important, Williston Basin School District #7 is administering the SCoPE Surveys, three surveys dedicated to evaluating the effectiveness of our communication with Faculty and Staff, Parents and Families, and the School Districts we serve. Please take a moment to complete this survey by February 16th: https://survey.k12insight.com/r/xocLb1
Feb. 6-10 is National School Counseling Week! We want to say THANK YOU to all of our School Counselors for all they do to help our student succeed!
