I’m so saddened by the loss of Ry’Heam. He brought a smile to so many faces during his time at RSP. He will forever be the funny kid who taught himself( and all the boys) the dance I taught the girls in his 3rd grade class for the talent show. He was the best part of the show, and a bright spot in our lives while he was at RSP. Teachers know our kids grow up, but they’re forever the smiling baby faces we once shared a classroom and a year of our life with. My condolences to his family and friends.
