Principal Moment

To celebrate the hundredth day of school, young children all over the country sing songs, shout cheers, read books, count numbers, chant poems, make murals, and string Froot Loop necklaces.  When I was a kid, no one celebrated 100th Day.  Now it’s huge. 

Monday, Riverview students in grades 1 - 6 will celebrate the 100th day of school (Kindergarten will celebrate the 100th day on February 3rd.) 

I wonder who the teacher was who started 100th day.  Did she  have any idea that her cute little idea would turn into a national event?  Could she have ever imagined that her little brainstorm would cause Froot Loops’ stock to soar on Wall Street every January?  Happy 100th Day of School!

Good Citizen Reward

Kindergarten and 1st grades will have their reward on Tuesday, Feb. 4th.   Wild Wonders, a traveling zoo, will be visiting the students in K-1st grades.

The good citizen reward for 2nd – 6th grades is a swimming activity to Springville Rec Center.  Teachers will be sending home field trip permission forms.

Riverview Learning Pit/Learner Powers

Our learner character for January is Molly Monkey.  She lived on a beautiful island, in a banana tree.  Molly watched her mom swing from branch to branch to reach the yummy bananas.  “I’m hungry” she thought.  She used her long arms, reached for a branch with both arms and fell to the ground.  Molly’s mom picked her up and said “listen to my instructions and watch carefully and soon you will be able to reach the yummy bananas.”  Molly’s mom taught her how to swing her body, where to place her hands, and how to spot the ripest bananas.  “Now your turn.” said Molly’s mom. Molly tried again.  Her swing was wobbly, she forgot which branch to grab, she fell to the ground feeling frustrated.  Molly’s mom picked her up, gave her a hug, and told her to try again, but this time reflect on what she had been taught.   Molly slowed down, she thought about how to swing her body, which branches to grab and how to spy the ripest bananas.  She tried again.  “Hooray” shouted her mom; “You are making progress.  You will soon be able swinging through the branches just like me!”  Be like Molly Monkey.
