March Champion Challenge Due Date

Riverview had a wonderful assembly to kickoff the Champion Challenge.  Students learned about Rodeo events such as bareback riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc, rodeo queens, team roping, barrel racing, mutton bustin, bull fighters, and the rodeo clown.  For the month of March, Riverview will be having a reading challenge.  Each student needs to record their daily minutes read on their reading calendar.  At the end of the month all of the students who read the required number of minutes will be eligible for a random drawing for two free tickets to the Champion Challenge Rodeo which will be held on May 30.  There will be one winner in each grade level.  Keep reading! The deadline is drawing near!

Golden Rule

Riverview Elementary had a performance by the Golden Rule Project. The Golden Rule Project performed a magic show centered on not being a bully.  The magician demonstrated how bullies intentions are to wreck someone’s experience.  Some people are immune to the bullying and they don’t let it hurt them.  They can help others to not be hurt by the bully.  The magician asked the students to think about how they would feel if bullying happened to them and to put themselves in the place of the person being bullied.  Students were reminded that we all have the right to be treated nicely.  Students had a great time learning about not being a bully through magic tricks.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  

Don't Let Your Teeth Go Extinct!

Riverview students had an assembly on oral hygiene. As students watched a dinosaur puppet show they were reminded to brush their teeth every morning and night, visit the dentist twice a year, and floss once a day. Students decided to take care of their teeth so they don't go extinct!
