Principal Moment

Back from Christmas Break; as I have been popping into the classrooms many students’ have been writing their New Year’s resolutions.  New Year’s what?  It turns out that the term ‘New Year Resolution’ is a bit of a head-scratcher for some kids.  “What is that?” said one bewildered little guy.

When asked more simply about their goals for the New Year, the kids gave thoughtful-and adorable-answers.  “I can get more 100’s on my tests,” “Try and be a little nicer to my sister,” “More money is a good goal,” and “Get more better at listening.”

SEP Conferences

SEP Conferences will be held Thursday, January 10th from 3:15-8:45 PM.  You will be getting an email this week from SignUpGenius.  This email will allow you to visit the website, find your child’s teacher(s), and sign-up for the time that is most convenient to your individual schedule.  Parents, if you find a need to change your appointment the day of conferences, please contact the teacher so he/she is aware of the change. 

There will be no school for students on Friday, January 11th. Thank you.

For the past nine years Riverview has received federal funding. This year the only schools who received funding were Title One schools.  Currently, Riverview does not qualify for any funding. Riverview has the largest Afterschool program in the state of Utah. WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT, we want to continue this great program.

An early morning club will be available every day at no charge from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. School doors will be unlocked at 8:00 a.m. for morning club only. This is a club for students who would like extra homework or reading help.  It is also available for parents who need to leave early for work and want a safe place for their students to be before school begins.  Mr. Teuscher a certified teacher, will provide the morning club instruction.  You must register your student for this club on the website.

Food Drive-Cans for Kids

Mrs. RaeAnn Nelson; Riverview’s music teacher and afterschool coordinator is the head of our food drive.  She shared with the faculty: “When I delivered the overabundance of food, clothing, and money...I want you to know I witnessed charity at its finest.  Our school has impressed me and others so much.  Thank you for your willingness to gather these donations, the pantry is filled to overflowing, the young mothers program has needed diapers for the babies, Park School had an amazing parent shopping event, three families in our area received needed clothing and food, Tabitha's Way took all the remainder.   My heart has been so touched when I have witnessed the love from your giving and service.  Thanks again for making this season magical  by sharing with others and loving your fellowman”.  Thank you!

Cold Weather

Cold weather is upon us.  Please, please don’t allow your child to come to school on a winter day dressed for spring/fall recess.  A jacket is not enough protection for a child to stay warm.  Please send your child to school with proper winter clothing (coats, hats, gloves, and boots).
