Principal Moment

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?” 

Riverview Chalk Walk Fundraiser                              

Friday begins a very important, fun, healthy way to raise money for Riverview Elementary.

Riverview is raising money to fund field trips, assemblies, technology and classroom supplies.

We want to promote a healthy lifestyle to our students and the community.  Please help us reach our fundraising goal by supporting our Chalk Walk.

  • We have teamed up with The Get Movin’ Crew© to make this event fun and profitable.
  • Please help us by helping your child raise a total of $50.00 in donations.
  • It’s easy! Just help your child gather 5, $10.00 flat donations, or more. 

We Need All Parents to Complete 3 Fast/Easy Online Steps!

  1. Register your Child by visiting  Your child(s) classroom teacher will send you information.  It's free, super easy, and takes only a few minutes!
  2. Share your child's student fundraising webpage via email to 10-15 friends and/or family. It’s super easy.
  3. Post on Facebook or Social Media. It's two clicks of a button to post. The average parent has 300 FB friends. You'll be surprised when donations come in from distant relatives/friends from HS/co-workers.  Post and see what happens!

Our total school goal is $50,000 - It is possible if each child brings in just 5, $10 flat donations!
