Elementary School News
A kindergartener at Rittman Elementary School was reiunited with his step-dad, U.S. Army Specialist Christopher Hickson, during an all-school gathering. Dominic Hinkel was surprised when he turned around to see an expert and his step-dad approached him. Dominic and his step-dad embraced and were thrilled to see each other once again. Hickson, deployed since April 2014, will be in town until the end of October.

Rittman Elementary is participating in the Labels for Education program. This program collects UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from participating products to earn points. These points can be redeemed for free educational merchandise! Our goal this year is to collect 20,000 points that we can redeem for a Gym Scoreboard.
