Cannot Stop The R.A.M. Way!

Snow Fest

Attributions: 

Students at Riverview had a good citizenship reward on Friday, January 20th – The first (annual?!) Snow Fest.  Snow Fest was a fun day bringing classes together to celebrate being a good Riverview citizen and also enjoy…SNOW!

Each class built a snowman.  Simple, right?  The snowman had to fall into one of the three categories.   The categories were:

  1. All About the Numbers – For this category, classes will try to build the tallest and fattest snowman. 
  2. Most Creative – Classes will need to accessorize their snowman (or snow-woman, or snow-family, or snow-animal)
  3. Teacher Look-a-like – Classes will need to accessorize their snowman to look like a Riverview Employee. 

Meeting Officer Grover

Attributions: 

Riverview third graders and sixth graders met Officer Cory Grover after reading and discussing the story “Aero and Officer Mike.”  Officer Grover brought his police dog and talked with the students about the training that he and his dog went through together. Officer Grover explained how his police dog is a loyal partner and they work together every day.  Students had a great time making connections from reading "Aero and Officer Mike" and meeting Officer Grover and his police dog.  Thank you for your service! 

PBIS

Make Your Mark and Make it Matter the Riverview RAM Way!  The purpose of schoolwide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) at Riverview is to establish a school climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm.  To become familiar with Riverview expectations in all areas of the school, please view the videos below. 
 

 

 

 

White Ribbon Week

Attributions: 

White Ribbon Week is scheduled for January 23rd - 27th. Each day we will focus on a different way we can be smart and safe online.  There will be a dress-up theme to emphasize the idea for each day.  Students can earn tickets for prize drawings at the end of the week by dressing up, wearing their white bracelet each day (handed out on Monday), writing an essay ( grades 3-6) or coloring a picture (grades K-2), and signing the pledge.

MONDAY: Wear something yellow - “Proceed with CAUTION when downloading!”

  • I will not download anything without my parents’ permission.

TUESDAY: Wear a hoodie or a hat – “Protect Your Mind!”

  • I will crash and tell if anything online makes me feel uncomfortable.  I will protect my mind.

WEDNESDAY: Wear crazy hair or crazy clothes – “It is CRAZY to share your personal information!”

  • I will keep my personal information and passwords private.  I will only share them with a parent.

THURSDAY: Wear a scarf or tie – “Don’t get tied up in cyber bullying!”

  • I will not view, share, or pass along negative or embarrassing information.

FRIDAY: Wear white or Riverview shirts – “Let’s remember White Ribbon Week all year round!”

  • I will encourage those around me to make smart choices in media and online.

 

Second Graders Wish Everyone A "Nice, Nice Christmas"

Attributions: 

Second graders performed their Christmas program for Riverview students and parents.  The songs were fun to learn and were all about having a “Nice, nice, Christmas.”  Students had so much fun singing about decorating trees, and asking Santa for what they wished for.  The students grooved to the music as they sang about reindeer dancing on their days off from work.  The second grade provided fun entertainment for everyone!

Christmas Sing-A-Long

Attributions: 

Riverview students got ready for the Christmas break by having a school wide Christmas Sing-A-Long. Mrs. Killian led the school in Christmas songs.  Santa Claus made a special visit to Riverview. All of the students did a great job and it really got everyone in the Christmas spirit.
