Kindergarten students graduated today!  They showed off what they have learned through rhyming and songs.  They sang about the alphabet, spelling, numbers, and their field trip to the zoo. Their performances were wonderful and so fun to watch.  Thank you, kindergarten teachers, for all of your hard work in giving these little ones a solid and happy foundation for the rest of their school years.

Congratulations kindergarten students!

Orchestra

Our school's orchestra performed for us last Thursday.  Mrs. Wangsgard did such a fantastic job helping these students learn their instruments and perform songs together as a group.  Some of the songs that required plucking the strings really caught the ears of the students!  Some of the orchestra members played familiar tunes that almost every student knew.  One was the theme song from Star Wars! 

Students were able to see and learn about the violin, the viola, and the cello.  The students sounded great!  Thanks for working so hard!  Mrs. Wangsgard said she wants even more 5th graders to join next year.  What a great idea!

Charles Thorpe, currently teaching 4th grade at Riverview, is retiring this year!  He has been an educator in the classroom for 38 years.  He has touched the lives of so many students throughout the years, including some of the staff here at Riverview. There is a celebration today at the school's library in his behalf.

Mr. Thorpe is leaving a grand legacy.  All of us at Riverview will miss his greetings, his laughter, his hard work, and all that he does for us.  We wish you all the best with your retirement, Mr. Thorpe.  Thank you again for everything! Happy, Happy Retirement!

4th graders experienced an Arbor Day to remember last week.  Students were able to share the importance of trees in the community and neighborhood.  They were able to help plant trees and participate with Spanish Fork in maintaining "Tree City" as a status symbol for the city.  Riverview 4th graders are happy to support that!
