School pictures will be taken tomorrow, Thursday, September 20th.  Since I started teaching, there are certain things about school photos that have never changed.  First is the envelope they arrive in.  It always has a window in it.  Through this window you get to see a third of your face, the top of your head, and one ear.  There is only one reason the envelopes have this window: to ease the shock.  The background in school photos hasn’t changed, either.  For as long as I can remember, school pictures have had that same light blue background.  In fact, if Jeopardy! Ever posted “School Photos” as a category, I wouldn’t be surprised if the winning answer was “What is blue?”

Principal Moment

We all hit that point where we can’t figure out exactly what we really want to do with our lives.  My niece is at that stage in her life.  She recently told me she thinks she has definitely made up her mind…she wants to be a teacher.  A smile spread across my face when she told me what she is studying…”I’m thinking of going into teaching.”  It warms me up inside.  She wants to teach the little ones, maybe first or second.  Or maybe third.  She is not really sure.  Definitely the little ones.  Just like me.  She asked me why I decided to teach elementary.  I told her it is because they can’t drive yet.  I wanted to find a parking space.

Heads Up – ‘Did You Knows’ for Parents

Are you a new parent to Riverview Elementary?  Do you know what dismissal time looks like?  We need your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY child’s safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority to ensure that students enter and exit cars in a safe and organized way. We ask everyone to correctly follow our pick-up and drop-off procedures. Failure to do so creates chaos, frustration and unsafe conditions. Each family should discuss these loading and walking procedures. Thank you for your continuing support in making Riverview a safe environment for all.

General Precautions:

  • Be your child’s best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety guidelines at all times.
  • No arrivals prior to 8:00; front doors will be locked until 8:00 AM
  • Please DO NOT STOP in the left lanes of the loading zones. This is a very dangerous location in our parking lot.  No students permitted in parking lot without an accompanying adult.
  • Use crosswalks to cross streets and loading zone lanes.
  • Students are not to ride bikes on school sidewalks or crosswalks. 
  • Students are to use the yellow walking/bike path that is painted around the perimeter of the West Parking lot by the Kindergarten playground when leaving school at the end of the school day.  Students may not ride bikes or walk through the parking lot. 
  • Follow all directions from school safety personnel. They can see potential problems you may not.
  • Students are to be picked-up promptly at dismissal; 2:15 on Mondays, 3:00 Tuesday – Friday.

Dropping Off:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Drivers may drop-off students along entire length of Loading Zone.
  • Students can unload from PASSENGER SIDE of vehicle only. The driver should remain in the vehicle at all times and all driver side doors are to remain closed. No trunk unloading allowed in this zone.
  • Keep pulling forward and fill in all gaps in Loading Zone Lane.
  • Have all school materials including backpack and lunch ready before student exits vehicle.
  • Once your student has exited your vehicle you may exit the parking lot via the bypass lane to the driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Picking up from School:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Student pick-up is available from Loading Zone Lane only.
  • Once your child has entered your car on passenger side of vehicle, please exit parking lot via bypass lane to driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Principal Moment

The first day of school is always interesting. Students sit down, nervous and quiet, trying to figure out their new teacher who tells them to be thoughtful to others, and use your time wisely, and follow directions, and raise your hands before speaking, and do not use the paper cutter, and ask to go to the bathroom, and don’t whine when you take out your math books, and respect each other’s property, and who know what that means? And don’t chew gum at school, and don’t exclude others from your games, and walk in the hallways, and don’t run up the slide. 

Poor kids.  I would have left after the first ten minutes. 

Actually, I almost did on my first day of first grade.  My teacher’s name was Mrs. Kenison.  I cried when I found out I had her.  My friends said she was mean.  She lined us all up by the chalkboard and walked down the row like a drill sergeant.  She stopped in front of me, bent over, and raised one eyebrow.  

“Miss Lindsey?” she said slowly. 

I froze. 

“I had you older brother,” she said.  

I wanted to run out the door but figured that, being a sergeant, she could run faster. So I stayed and learned to read and count to 100.  It ended up being my favorite year. 

I like the beginning of each school year.  The pencils don’t have teeth marks. The dry erase markers write.  The recess balls bounce.  The rug smells like carpet cleaner.  And the desks smell like 409. 

And here we are; the 3rd week of school.  We haven’t had any students walk home after morning recess.  We have had some blisters, a few criers, and some kids throw-up, but hey, that is a typical day in elementary school.  Thank you for a great beginning to the school year!  

Reporting to parents in 2018

It is our goal for parents to be well informed and engaged on how your child is achieving and progressing.  All teachers are implementing a SIS Standards Based report card.  A Standards Based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at each grade level.  Instead of letter grades, students receive marks that show how well they have mastered skills. This type of reporting should provide parents more knowledge on which skills and knowledge your child has acquired.  

After-School Clubs

Registration for afterschool clubs will be available tomorrow, September 6th at 8:00 a.m. at http://riverview.nebo.edu/content/nebo-boysgirls-after-school-clubs. 

Clubs will begin on Monday, September 10th.  All students will meet in the lunch room at 2:15 p.m. for a snack and an activity.  Students will then separate into the various clubs.  All students are excused at 3:45 p.m.  Tuesday thru Friday clubs will be held from 3:00 – 4:30. 

Parents, plan to pick up children at the flag pole or have the students walk home.  Please have then conversation with your children about whether they walk or wait to be picked up.
