The 5th graders created a wonderful Wax Museum. 5th grade students researched and summarized the lives of many people who helped shape history. Riverview students and families were able to visit and learn about famous historical figures. Thank you 5th grade for your time and preparation. It was an excellent event!
The PTA Reflections program encourages Riverview students to explore their artistic talents. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students are encouraged to submit works of art in six arts areas:

Riverview students participated in the Good Citizen Reward. Students were able to participate in karaoke singing with their grade level classmates. Students even got a special performance from Mrs. Killian, Mrs. Porter, and Mrs. Nielson! Congratulations Riverview students on having great citizenship for Term 1!
In honor of Veterans Day, Riverview students place pictures of Veterans in the hallway. Students love being able to share their Veteran with others. As students look at the pictures, they are reminded of the many amazing people who serve our country. Thank you Mrs. Raeann Nelson for organizing this important reminder every year! Riverview would like to wish you a happy Veterans Day!
To honor Veteran’s Day, Riverview students had the privilege to meet veterans. The veterans introduced themselves and presented a patriotic slide show. Mrs. Nelson led Riverview students in singing a patriotic song. There was also a surprise visit for several of our very own Riverview students! A father recently returned from Iraq and surprised his three children! We appreciate the sacrifices veterans have made so we can be free!
Riverview 4-H and Riverview Student Council are pleased to announce the seventh annual Food Drive and Giving Tree service project. This service project will be Nov. 9th –Dec. 20th, our goal is to BEAT last year’s total of 3,000 can of food! The food will be donated to families in our school, Nebo Pantry, and the Utah Food Coalition.
The Nebo Pantry is for homeless and transient students in our district. The District currently has over 1,700 students in this situation. The Nebo Pantry is in extreme need of new packaged socks and underwear (in all sizes youth to adult). They also need new gloves, hats, and new or gently used coats.
There will be a contest between classes. Each class has a goal of collecting 125 cans OR point per class. If any student donates socks, underwear, gloves or coats they will get 5 bonus points for the food drive. One can of food will be worth 1 point, teachers will keep track of class points. The class per grade level that collects the most cans/bonus points will receive a pizza party.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students about service and being grateful for the things we have. All cans should be brought to your student’s classroom to be counted and recorded.
PLEASE make sure the cans are not EXPIRED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!! LET’S ALL WORK TOGETHER FOR A GREAT CAUSE!!
