Riverview PTA Welcome Letter

Attributions: 

Take time to join PTA and give us an hour (or two) of your time this year.

Welcome Back!! It is always amazing to me how fast the summer flies by. A new year is always exciting for my kids. Riverview PTA’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. We also promote a school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work with the resources we can provide and help make school fun.

For the PTA to be effective and truly representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. You can help even if you work full-time. Whatever your own level of flexibility, Riverview PTA always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.

PTA matters to you, your children, your school, and your community.

Join vs Volunteer

You don’t have to join PTA to volunteer in the school or on any activities that PTA sponsors. You also don’t have to volunteer if you join PTA.

Joining PTA means you add your voice to the voices across the community, state, and nation that school and education is important. It also means that you support the teachers and students at Riverview Elementary. Just adding your support helps make Riverview OUR school.

Volunteering at school helps PTA run the many programs that benefit the students and community. We NEED volunteers who can help in all different ways. Commit to volunteer for an hour this year to help out at the school! I promise you will not regret it!

PTA membership is only $6 a parent. You can Venmo your membership dues to riverviewpta@gmail.com or fill out the attach sheet and send it to school.

Caine's Arcade In Second Grade

Riverview second graders created their very own Caine's Arcade. Students used mostly cardboard and a few other materials to create their very own arcade games. Students in the school visited the second grade classrooms and had a great time playing the arcade games. Great job second graders!

Principal Moment

I am not going to lie; the last month of school is sooo busy, teachers sometimes wish they could fast-forward to the last day of school.  When the last day comes, they want to sloooowww it down.

This year on the last day of school, we will try to make it like any other day.  We will talk to students in the halls; we will laugh at jokes we have heard twenty times, we will ask what colleagues and kiddos have planned for the summer. 

Ten minutes before the bell rings, teachers will begin their final speech of the year.  It will go something like this, “Boys and girls, it’s been a great year…” At this point teachers’ voices begin to crack.  “And now it is time for you to move to the next grade.  You’ve worked hard and you are ready.”  Finally, the last bell will ring.  Teachers will stand up, wipe their eyes and without any direction the students will line up for hugging.  Teachers will bite their lips, tousle hair and pat heads good-bye. 

When the students are all gone, teachers will put the classroom to bed, load memories into a box, stack the chairs to one side, erase the “1 day left” from the corner of the whiteboard, close the cupboard doors, take one last look around the room, turn off the lights, and lock the door.

Then the year will be over.  Just like that.

Students will be dismissed at noon on Friday.  Lunch will be served at 10:10 for those students who would like to eat lunch.  Pizza is the only menu item; chicken nuggets and sandwiches will not be available.   Buses will be running the regular routes.  

Lunch Menu for the week

  • Tuesday 22nd – Corn Dogs/fries
  • Wednesday 23rd – Pizza Rippers
  • Thursday 24th – Country fried steak/fries
  • Friday – Pizza only – no chicken nuggets or cheese sandwich

Video postponed

We had plans to end the year creating a Riverview music video.  This plan has been postponed until the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.  Thank you for being understanding.

PTA

On behalf of the Riverview students and teachers, I would like to thank the PTA for their service during this 2017-2018 school year!  This work is very important to the experiences our children have at Riverview.  Your contributions provide the “something extra special” for the students.

Your work this year has resulted in some real successes.  These include: the Spring Carnival, Book Fairs, Red/Green Ribbon Week, White Ribbon Week, Art Show, Parent/Child Activities, Teacher Appreciation Week, Popcorn Fridays, BoxTops for Education Drives, Classroom Parties, SEP Dinners, Reflections Contest, and Parent Helpers in the classrooms!  The number of parents who were involved in activities this year is truly remarkable!  The true beneficiaries of your efforts are the students at Riverview!  Again, thank you for your efforts!

Principal Moment

It is the time of year teachers need to put on their hardhats, tie yellow caution tape across their doors, and lay out orange cones in the halls.  They will need to stand guard at the garbage cans, handing back papers that forgot where the ‘finished’ work basket is.

You have probably never been able to observe how kids clean out their desks.  They don’t take out their books and papers and lay them on top of their desks.  Oh no.  They reach their arms into their desks, pull everything out at the same time, and spread it all out on the floor like it’s their Halloween candy. 

If ever there be an emergency, we could sustain students for quite some time on all the lost bags of Cheetos, black bananas, and Smarties that will magical appear and also answer the question of  “What is that smell?” 

Teachers, don’t fight it.  Make it a party; the games will be “Stuff the Garbage Can until It Overflows”, “Stand on the Papers in the Garbage Can to Make It Go Down”, and “Oh, There It Is!”  What a great time of year!

Lunch Menu for next week

Music Video

This year we are trying to create a great memory…a Riverview music video!  The video will be to the song “The Great Show” from the movie “The Greatest Showman.”    A videographer will be coming on May 21st to help us create a great memory.  The most important ingredient for the memory is enthusiasm.  On Monday, May 21st, students can bring crazy wigs, sun glasses, a stuffed animal (circus),  a silly hat, etc. 

Yearbook

The yearbooks have been ordered and are currently being printed.  The PTA have ordered some extra books, BUT not a lot.  If you would still like a book, you may purchase one for $15 through the office.  The books will be delivered the last week of school.
