Students at Riverview Elementary celebrated National Dot Day. Students all throughout the school dressed in polka dot clothing, received Dots treats from Mrs. Killian, and colored dots that will be posted throughout the school. Students were reminded to Make Your Mark, Make It Matter. Happy National Dot Day!
Dot Day is all about encouraging each other to discover how we can make a difference. Students are encouraged to "just make a mark and see where it takes you." One simple act, one simple change of thinking, can snowball into something big.
What we want Riverview students to learn is:
- Each of us can make our mark…we can make a difference.
- It is important to support each other and believe in each other.
- A small bit of encouragement is enough to help us discover a hidden ability that we might not know about.
Each of us can make our mark. Each of us can make a difference.
The 4th grade classes at Riverview demonstrated their understanding of the scientific method with an egg drop. The goal was to not let their egg crack after being dropped off the roof of the school. Students built their own projects in hopes of keeping their egg safe. Students took notes on the process of the scientific method. The students enjoyed watching their eggs fall from the roof to see if they would survive.
Mrs. Killian introduced our Make A Mark, Make It Matter theme for the 2016-2017 school year. Students read "The Dot" and learned how everyone can be an influence for good and make a good mark in someone's life. Students surprised Mrs. Killian by using their painted thumb to make a dot on a music scale to show that they will Make A Mark and Make It Matter this school year.

Wanted...decorated 2 liter sodas for the PTA Carnival Pop Walk!
Parents, next time you’re at the store, grab a few 2 liter sodas. Keep them full and sealed. Then let your kids decorate them however they want. The skys the limit! (animals, star wars, teachers, robots, etc) You can decorate and donate as many 2 liters as you like.
What is a Pop Walk? Think of Musical Chairs. The walk begins when music starts; children walk around the circle as the music continues. When the music stops, children move to the nearest number. A number is drawn and the child standing on that number wins a decorated 2 liter of soda pop. Sounds like a "popping" good time!
