Principal Moment

Yesterday was the first day of Kindergarten!!  Robert Fulgum has taught us that all we really need to know, we learned in Kindergarten.  “Share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people.  Put things back where you found them…it is best to hold hands and stick together.”

Kindergarten kids are literal.  I haven’t taught Kindergarten but I can speak Kindergartenese.  I can count by two’s…2, 2, 2, 2, 2.  I know what a “reptangle” is.  I know that every spring Kindergartner kiddos “dive” Easter Eggs.  Welcome to school Kindergartners!  You will love it here!

Busing

In order to ride a school bus, you must reside 1.5 miles or further from the school.  The following link will allow you to explore the bus route finder http://www.infofinderi.com/ifi/?cid=NSD4K2L8WGYX

Communication

 

We know that one communication channel doesn’t always meet all parent needs.  When we think about our parent audience, individuals range from “tell me only what I need to know” to “tell me everything”.  There are a number of communication channels to keep you connected.

 

Weekly School email

This will be sent to your email each week.  Make sure your email is updated. 

 

Riverview School website.

We try to keep it the website updated regularly.  Keep informed about Riverview Elementary events through the school website http://riverview.nebo.edu/.   

Parent Communication Page

We also have a parent communication page where you can find all weekly messages and the Riverview Elementary Vision for Learning https://sites.google.com/nebo.edu/riverviewelementary/home

 

Facebook & Instagram

Most days Mrs. Killian, Mrs. Woodhouse, and Mrs. Nielson share learning both our teachers and students are involved in.  It is a great way to become connected to real time happenings within the school.

Riverview PTA Welcome Letter

Attributions: 

Take time to join PTA and give us an hour (or two) of your time this year.

Welcome Back!! It is always amazing to me how fast the summer flies by. A new year is always exciting for my kids. Riverview PTA’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. We also promote a school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work with the resources we can provide and help make school fun.

For the PTA to be effective and truly representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. You can help even if you work full-time. Whatever your own level of flexibility, Riverview PTA always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.

PTA matters to you, your children, your school, and your community.

Join vs Volunteer

You don’t have to join PTA to volunteer in the school or on any activities that PTA sponsors. You also don’t have to volunteer if you join PTA.

Joining PTA means you add your voice to the voices across the community, state, and nation that school and education is important. It also means that you support the teachers and students at Riverview Elementary. Just adding your support helps make Riverview OUR school.

Volunteering at school helps PTA run the many programs that benefit the students and community. We NEED volunteers who can help in all different ways. Commit to volunteer for an hour this year to help out at the school! I promise you will not regret it!

Sign up here:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0D4FA9A82FAAFA7-volunteers

PTA membership is only $6 a parent. You can Venmo your membership dues to riverviewpta@gmail.com or fill out the attach sheet and send it to school.
