WEEK TWO - AUGUST 28TH - SEPTEMBER 1ST

Tomorrow, August 29th is the first day of Kindergarten!! Robert Fulgum has taught us that all we really need to know, we learned in Kindergarten. “Share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people. Put things back where you found them…it is best to hold hands and stick together.”

Kindergarten kids are literal. I haven’t taught Kindergarten but I can speak Kindergartenese. I can count by two’s…2, 2, 2, 2, 2. I know what a “reptangle” is. I know that every spring Kindergartner kiddos “dive” Easter Eggs. Welcome to school Kindergartners! You will love it here!

COMMUNICATION

We know that one communication channel doesn’t always meet all parent needs. When we think about our parent audience, individuals range from “tell me only what I need to know” to “tell me everything”. There are a number of communication channels to keep you connected.

Weekly School email

This will be sent to your email each week. Make sure your email is updated in AspireSIS.

Riverview School website.

Mrs. Mathis, Mrs. Jensen and Mrs. Killian update the website regularly. Keep informed about Riverview Elementary events through the school website http://riverview.nebo.edu/.
