Our citizenship assembly was held today, November 15. Students who showed good citizenship throughout term 1 were invited to attend a bicycle stunt show provided by Rich Wieber from Minnesota. Rich and his son showed us awesome tricks on their bikes while teaching us about the importance of bike safety, making good choices throughout life, and setting goals.
Teachers were in on the stunts- Mrs. Galt and Mrs. Lacrua were among those chosen to be jumped over as part of the show. It's a good thing those guys are pros! It was great entertainment!
Riverview helped our local veterans celebrate. They watched them post and retire the flag, play taps, and hear about their commitment to our country. Students sang patriotic songs for them and Mrs. LemMon's first grade class wrote them a thank you letter. Thanks to all of those who have served our country. Happy Veterans' Day!
Second grade students celebrated "Take A Veteran to School" on Friday, November 9th. Students invited a veteran in to visit the classroom with them. Many were parents and grandparents who have served in the military throughout many different situations and wars. One student's father is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Students learned what it means when they put their hands over their hearts in saluting the flag, and how the military men and women vow to protect them so that they can enjoy all that they can do in life. They also learned a march and cadence from the Air Force! They wrote a thank you star for the veterans and got their autographs as well.
