Principal Moment

“Ask not what your secretary can do for you, but what you can do for your secretary!”

It’s funny how principals think they are in charge, but everyone knows that the people who really run a school are the secretaries.  If you have questions, ask the secretary.  If you lose something, see the secretary.  If the copier is jammed, get the secretary.  If a child throws up, send her to the secretary.  


Mrs. Tricia Nielson and Mrs. Aubree Barnum are our school secretaries.  Everyone should try to make friends with these wonderful secretaries; you will need them more than you ever know.  They are the backbone of the school.

Wednesday is Secretary’s Day.  Happy Secretary’s Day to these wonderful ladies, you are amazing and we love you!

PTA Events


The PTA created a great week last week!  We had three fun events; the bookfair, the art show and the family skate night!  On behalf of Riverview, I extend my “Thank You!”  The true beneficiaries of your efforts are the students at Riverview Elementary School.



Please come and enjoy:


Games and Activities from 5:30 to 8PM


Silent Auction from 5:30 to 7:30PM


Food will be served from 5:30 to 8PM

Discount Tickets are available for purchase this week, April 23 – April 27 in the front office. For every 10 tickets purchased this week, you will receive 2 free tickets. That’s $5 for 12 tickets!

On the day of the Carnival tickets will only be available for purchase at the Carnival .

They will be $5 for 10 tickets.

EVERY STUDENT WILL RECEIVE ONE FREE TICKET from their teacher to use towards any food or activity!


There will be a silent auction for the awesome themed baskets that have been donated and carefully prepared by each class, as well as other great items. There will also be drawings for grand prizes.........................................................!

New This Year - Online Donations

This year your friends and family from out of town can participate by donating money to our cause online! To donate online simply go to the following link - For every dollar donated online the donor can select a student who will have an extra ticket placed in the bike raffle. So if grandma donates $20, her grandchild has 20 more chances to win the bike!!!

Waivers (Online too!)

It is required that all participants of the Carnival activities complete a waiver. Waivers will be sent home with each student, please complete the waiver and return it to your child's teacher or the office. -OR- you can go online to fill out a waiver.

Parents and caregivers don’t forget to bring your lawn chairs and blankets so you can watch the children having fun outsideJ





The yearbooks have been ordered and are currently being printed.  The PTA have ordered some extra books, BUT not a lot.  If you would still like a book, you may purchase one for $15 through the office or Lifetouch’s website at  Enter code: 10708318.  The books will be delivered the last week of school.


Teacher requests for 2018-2019


Teacher requests will be open from Monday, April 30th to Friday, May 4th.  Forms will be available in the front office during this week only.

Library Books

The final day for book check out in both the main library and take home this year is Friday, May 4th.  All books are expected to be returned to the library no later than Friday, May 11. 

To encourage students to bring their books in or pay for lost/damaged books on time, Mrs. Downey and Mrs. Marsigli are holding a little contest.  The first class in each grade to have all of their library books returned or lost/damaged fines paid (meaning main library and take home books) will receive donuts!  That's right, there will be 7 class winners, one from each grade.  


In addition to the donuts contest, they are going to be holding a weekly drawing for each grade for the rest of the school year.  This is how it works:


Each week in library if a student does not have any overdue books or returns their overdue books that class period, they will receive a ticket to fill out and place in the drawing basket for their grade. The overdue books include main library and take home library. On Monday mornings, Mrs. Downey will draw a winner from each grade to come down and select a book or reading buddy (stuffed animals that coordinates with a book). They'll be holding this contest each week for the rest of the school year.
