****Wear your school colors on the last day of school! *****
Gratitude: We would like to send out lots of gratitude to our PTO and room parents. We could not do our jobs without you all. Thank you for all of your time, support and most of all creative ways to get our community engaged!
Goodbyes: We would like to say goodbye to two very special people. First, we would like to say goodbye to our very own Mary Logan! Mary has been at Riverview for 15 years! We will all miss Mary as she is so incredibly kind and helpful to all of us! She will be greatly missed! Next, we would like to wish Sarah Livoiti good luck in her next chapter of life. She is getting married this summer and then moving to the East Coast. We have loved having Sarah here these past couple of years! Good luck to you both!
Summer Bridge Program, Dreambox, and iReady: Your student received a Summer Bridge Book that is full of activities that will help students keep their skills sharp and extend some of their skills to the next grade level. We would also encourage all students and families to spend 20 minutes or more a day reading for pleasure. Please see the attached letter for more details.
Students can also use Dreambox (Math) and iReady throughout the summer via their Clever portal. Here are some instructions for accessing Clever at home.
Lost and yet to be found
Please make sure that you pick up any lost items by Friday, June 3rd as they will be taken to a local thrift store.
School Safety: We would first like to express our sincere condolences to the families and educators in Uvalde,Texas. As many of you have seen, we placed a chair for each of the victims under the American Flag in front of Riverview to show we are thinking about them and their families. This is such a sensitive topic and we can empathize with all views and opinions. These kinds of tragedies bring with it a lot of questions, concerns, anger, frustrations, reflection and a myriad of emotions. Some questioned why we don’t have more conversations with our students and some asked us not to have conversations with students as it is too much. We met as a staff Crew on Thursday afternoon to check in with each other and review lockdown protocols and ask questions and brainstorm ways to talk about such a heavy topic with our students after this tragedy. We offered support from our behavior team to both staff, students and parents. Each month we are required to have a safety drill. Two of our drills next year will be lockdown drills. Know that these drills are an opportunity to practice what is additionally discussed and emphasized with students and staff on a regular basis. Prior to the drills we will be communicating and educating our families so that they can talk about the drills and prepare the students. Please know that student and staff safety is the driver for all decisions at Riverview. Thank you to all of you who reached out with support through this difficult time. Please see this Link to the district letter for more information and resources.
Reading Rocks was a HUGE success this year with a total of total 453,915 minutes of schoolwide reading!! We would like to give a major thanks to our PTO for helping to organize and run this initiative. We could not do it without you. Thank you for helping to create lifelong reading habits.
