Riverview 2nd Grade classes partnered with the History Channel for a celebration of our veterans for Veterans' Day.  Students invited family members or friends  who serve or have served in the military to visit our classrooms.  The veterans spoke about their duties and what branch of the military they belonged to.  They showed photos and uniforms and told stories of their duties and places they served. 

Students decorated paper stars with a thank you message to give to the veterans and were able to shake these heroes' hands and get their autographs!  The second graders learned a lot about veterans and what they do to keep us safe.  They have paved the way for us to enjoy our freedom.  The students learned that children all over the world are just like them and love to smile and play.  Riverview students are thankful for our veterans and military who let us continue to attend school and live a wonderful life.  Students had a great time celebrating real superheroes and learning a little more about veterans and their families and what they do for us as a country.

Students from Riverview's 4-H Service Club and Mrs. RaeAnn Nelson presented the Firefighters and Paramedics of Spanish Fork City, a donation of $200.00.  Students presented it to a group of volunteers in a special program on November 11, 2011.  Firefighters, EMT personnel, and Policemen from the community were invited to an assembly that morning, where the students sang a special song honoring them as our heroes.  The Service Club wanted to assist these volunteers in supplying stuffed animals and other necessities to children in stressful situations.  We are proud of our heroes and proud of our 4-H Clubs!

Drum Magic

Students in Mrs. Nelson's music class received a surprise from our neighbor and parent of students at Riverview, Mr. Burrs.  Last week he brought in his hand-made drums for the kids to see and listen to.  Students had a great time listening to the different tones and sounds the drums and instruments made.  He is welcome any time with his creations!
