Dear Parents,

As we approach the end of first term (October 29), parents wanting to change their child’s learning option for second term from Remote Learning to At-School Learning, or vice versa, can do so by submitting their decision in THIS LINK between October 5 and October 20. 

If parents do not wish to change their student’s learning option at this time, they do not need to submit a decision.

Once second term begins on November 2, parents will need to stay with their decision until the term ends on January 14. At that time, parents will have another opportunity to make a change. Please contact your school if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Estimados padres:

A medida que nos acercamos al final del primer trimestre (el 29 de octubre), los padres que deseen cambiar la opción de aprendizaje de sus hijos para el segundo trimestre de aprendizaje remoto a aprendizaje en la escuela, o viceversa, pueden hacerlo enviando su decisión en  ESTE ENLACE entre el 5 de octubre y el 20 de octubre. 

Si los padres no desean cambiar la opción de aprendizaje de su estudiante en este momento, no es necesario que envíen una decisión.

Una vez que el segundo trimestre empiece el 2 de noviembre, los padres tendrán que seguir con su decisión hasta que el trimestre finalice el 14 de enero. En ese momento, los padres tendrán otra oportunidad para hacer un cambio. Si tienen alguna pregunta, sírvanse comunicarse con su escuela.

¡Gracias!

Nebo School District Teams Up with Beehive Library Consortium to Modernize Reading and Literacy Through Ebooks and E-audiobooks

Shared goal to promote digital learning in the community

In this mobile age, technology has become increasingly valuable in supporting new generations of lifelong learners and readers. Now, Nebo School District and Beehive Library Consortium have formed an innovative new partnership to increase access to more ebooks and e-audiobooks for students. This unique collaboration strives to promote literacy and digital learning by combining the schools’ and the library’s digital reading resources in one app. As a result, students can learn anytime, anywhere because of the convenience, ease of reading on-the-go and the inherent popularity of technology.

The school-library partnership provides safe access to thousands of age-appropriate titles for students’ use inside the classroom, at home and anywhere 24/7. Through Sora(link is external), the new student reading app for Nebo School District, students can now borrow the school’s collection of classroom and pleasure reading, and also access Beehive Library Consortium’s juvenile and young adult digital collection. In addition, Sora supports teachers by offering education-specific tools like achievements, exportable notes, and reading progress that encourage individualized learning.

"We are thrilled to partner with Payson City Library,” said Lana Hiskey, Communications Community Relations Coordinator at Nebo School District. “This partnership enables our Nebo students to have greater ebook and audiobook access for learning!"

The Sora app was named one of TIME’s Best Inventions 2019(link is external) and is available for Nebo School District students to download through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and on Chromebooks that support the Google Play Store. It is also available for use in web browsers at https://soraapp.com(link is external) on any computer.

Utah residents can also borrow and read Beehive Library Consortium’s complete ebook and e-audiobook collection with a valid library card through the award-winning Libby app(link is external)The library’s tailored collection offers ebooks, e-audiobooks and magazines including bestsellers and new releases. Readers of all ages can select from virtually every subject ranging from mystery, romance, children’s, business and more. Libby can be used on any major device or computer, including Apple (R), Android™, Chromebook™ and Kindle(R) (US only).

Both reading apps are built by OverDrive and OverDrive Education. To learn more, visit https://meet.soraapp.com/(link is external) and https://meet.libbyapp.com/(link is external).

Principal Moment

I have been an educator for thirty-one years.  Thirty-one years of experience couldn’t have prepared me – or any educator – for COVID.  But one thing still remains the same: the kids.

They will ask for an ice pack when they don’t really need it. 

When they run to tell you that they just kicked the ball over the fence or on the roof, I can see the smile in their eyes and voice.  

They blow bubbles in the milk carton.  They squeeze the juice box.

They sharpen a pencil to get the world’s smallest pencil.

When they like your outfit, they tell you.  When they don’t like your outfit, they tell you.  When you wear the same outfit in one week, they tell you.

It’s a great year!

Kindergarten Parking Lot

Riverview still remains the largest elementary is the district.  Our parking lots are the only place where drivers and students share the same area of the roadway.   

 

We need your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY child’s safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority.

 

We ask all to be aware of the yellow walking/bike path that is painted around the perimeter of the West Parking lot by the Kindergarten.  We have cars parking in the walking path.  This creates a dangerous situation for children. 

We strongly encourage parents to park in sports park lot across from the school and we will help them safely walk to your car.

 

Thank you for being aware of students and each other in order to create a safe school for our community.

 

Early Release

All students in Nebo School District will be dismissed early on Monday, September 21st for teacher development.   There will be no Afternoon Kindergarten session.   Lunch will be served beginning at 10:10 am.   Buses will run regular routes.

Information About Free Breakfast/lunches for All Nebo Students!

Nebo School District is committed to providing our students and school communities with nutritious and great-tasting meals.  To that end, Nebo School District will be switching to an “Open Restricted Meal Program.” Under this program, breakfast and lunch are available for free to all students enrolled in Nebo School District, including remote learners.

If your student is a remote learner and you want to participate, please call Riverview at 801-798-4050 each morning before 9 a.m. to place your order. Meals will be available for pick up in the front office 30 minutes before your school’s scheduled lunch. A 15-minute time frame has been allotted for meal pick up.

This program is scheduled to run through December 2020, or until funding is exhausted. We will send updates as developments occur.

Reflections

Dear Riverview families,

 

We are so excited that all students have the ability to enter Reflections this year . . . online! This means that even students who have chosen the online school option can participate, if they would normally attend Riverview. (Homeschooled students not choosing the district's online option are unfortunately not eligible.)

 

The deadline for entries is October 7th!

 

Please watch this six-minute video to learn about what Reflections is, what the categories are, what the rules are, and how to enter. 

 

The URL given in the video is slightly incorrect. The correct one is:

 

http://utahpta.org/reflections-online

 

It should be fairly straightforward, but if you have any problems or questions, please email me, Ruth Owen, at riverviewreflections@gmail.com.

 

A couple of things the video didn't say:

 

1. Sixth graders who enter in the music composition category must include a transcription of their music, whether handwritten or using music transcription software. I recommend flat.io.

 

2. Artwork, photography, video, etc., featuring copyrighted material is not allowed. So please do not enter paintings of Iron Man, photos of an Elsa doll, or Lego creations of Minecraft animals or characters. They will be disqualified. Every year we have a few, so I want to be super clear so we don't have any disappointed kids.

 

I can't wait to see what creative projects your kids will submit. Reflections is such a neat program.

 

And remember, everyone who enters gets a small prize, and the winners get trophies and the chance to move on to Region and possibly further!

 

Best of luck!

 

Ruth Owen

Reflections Chair

Principal Moment

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend.   I am always delighted to welcome our learners back to school after a long weekend.

I am very proud of how seamlessly our Riverview learners have adapted to the face coverings, social distancing, and continue to remain flexible and positive as we strive to keep every child safe.

Some of the following message will be a repeat of last week’s newsletter.  Please glance through, we ask that you be familiar with what is happening at Riverview.  We thank you for your continued support. 

Smart Watches and Cell Phones

We take very seriously the responsibility of caring for your children while they are at school and in our care.  Recently we have an increase of students/parents contacting each other via communication devices and the office has not been made aware.  

The school office remains a vital and appropriate point of contact and can ensure your child is reached quickly and assisted in any relevant way.   We acknowledge that providing a child with a Smart Watch or Cell phone gives parents reassurance that they can contact their child if they need to speak to them urgently. 

Please read and understand the policy regarding Students are required to use phones/Smartwatches responsibly at all times.

  • The school is a workplace, and phone/Smartwatches can interfere with the atmosphere and good order of the workplace, even when in silent mode. Riverview expects that phones/Smartwatches will be switched off and be put away during and between lessons.
  • Unless permission is granted, mobile phones/Smartwatches should not be used to make calls, send SMS messages, surf the internet, take photos or use any other application during school lessons and other educational activities, between the hours of 8:45am and 2:15pm. Students are to use the office phones.
  • Phones/Smartwatches must always be switched off (not on silent mode).
  •  

    Mobile phones/Smartwatches must not disrupt classroom lessons with ring tones, music or beeping. Mobile phones/Smartwatches should be turned off during lesson time.

  • Mobile phones/Smartwatches should not to be taken into bathrooms or used in any situation that may cause embarrassment or discomfort to other students, staff or visitors to the school.
  • If a student breaches any of these rules, the phone/Smartwatch will be confiscated and given to the school office. The phone/Smartwatch will be returned at the end of the day when the parent collects it or stored in the school office until this happens.
  • Students who bring a mobile phone/Smartwatch to school should leave it put away when they arrive. To reduce the risk of theft during school hours, students who carry mobile phone/Smartwatch are advised to keep them well concealed and not ‘advertise’ they have them.
  • Mobile phones/Smartwatches that are found in the school and whose owner cannot be located should be handed to the office.
  • The school accepts no responsibility for replacing lost, stolen or damaged mobile phones/ Smartwatches.

Thank you for reviewing the policy and communicating with your child the expectations of Smart Watches and Cell Phones during the school day.

Principal Moment

Thank you for all your support as we navigated the twists and turns accompanying the start of the new school year.  There is nothing like being together again!  Our staff was excited to meet our new students and see the return of so many familiar faces. 

The students have done an admirable job adhering to safety guidelines, adapting to the shortened school day, and using their Chromebooks in a responsible way. 

One thing that has not changed is our commitment to maintaining high standards of academic excellence.  Necessity drives innovation, and already our staff are finding novel ways to drive learning forward. 

Building strong literacy and mathematic skills is one of our main focuses this year.  Soon each child will take an iReady Diagnostic Assessment in both reading and mathematics.  Students will also begin the year with an Acadience Reading test.  These assessments will be taken three times each year and help us gauge each child’s current reading and mathematics levels and what support they will need to be successful.  You child may be eligible for additional help through our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, a well-developed system of interventions where we pinpoint exact skill gaps and pair students with trained intervention coaches to address those needs.

Our wonderful Librarian, Mrs. Thorpe, has been working hard to create procedures that will allow our students to safely check-out books on a regular basis.  Our wonderful Assistant Librarian, Mrs. Larsen, is preparing our younger grades to soon have access to our take-home reading program, students will be loaned five books selected for them based on their individual reading levels.

The home is another important piece of the literacy puzzle.  When you show your children how much you value reading, they are more likely to follow your example.

Riverview Learner Powers

Have you ever felt stuck and frustrated when you are learning?  The Learning Pit and learner powers are about giving students courage when they feel stuck.  When we are stuck, we are actually doing our best learning.  Education is about building our learning capacity. 

Using the learner powers helps students feel courageous when they get stuck.  Once students can identify which learning phase they are in, they can more easily select a learner power which will help them pass to the next phase in learning and begin their learning journey out of the pit and finally reach the point of breakthrough to "Hooray, I get this now!"

Last Friday, we introduced students to the learning pit and the learner powers and some new animals characters to help adopt the habits of the learner powers.

This month we are going to focus on the ‘Be Determined’ learner power.   Spike Spider is the animal who helps us learn what being determined feels like.  Meet Spike Spider.  Spike is a spunky spider who has stickability.  He doesn’t give up and keeps trying until he reaches the top. Spike woke up one sunny day determined  to climb the water spout.  He began his climb, spinning sticky webs back and forth as he carefully climbed the spout.  But then the weather changed from sunny to rainy.  Down came the rain and went all down the water spout.  Spike found it hard to hang on and he slipped.  Down and down he fell further and further.  Then with a plonk he fell to the ground soaking wet and exhausted.  Did he sulk?  Did he slink away?  Nope!  He never lets setbacks get in his way.  Spike waited.  The sun came out a few hours later and he began his climb back up the water spout.   He doesn’t give up and keeps trying until he reaches the top.  Be like Spike Spider.  Keep trying.  Keep climbing until you make it to the top and finally get to say “Hooray, I Get This Now.”  

 

When you are Determined like Spike Spider, you…

  • Learn hard
  • Practice a lot
  • Keep going in the face of difficulty
  • Try new strategies
  • Ask for help
  • Start again
  • Take a brain break

A Few Reminders

 

Thank you for a safe start to our school year.  Students have done a remarkable job with the safety protocols from the County Health Department.  We appreciate you for sending your child to school each day with a clean mask and water bottle.

 

If your children walk, ride a bike or you drop them off, please plan arrival as near to 8:40 as possible.

 

All visitors/volunteers are to check in at the office for temperature check and sign-in prior to going to classrooms for potential contract tracing as per the county health department.  Please note that all visitors/volunteers will need to wear face coverings inside the school.

Reminder there is no left turn when exiting the west drop off zone.   When entering the parking lot near the Kindergarten playground, please be aware of the yellow walking path.  This parking lot is shared with walker and bikers.  Please do not park within the walking path to allow students to travel safety home from school.

Remote Learners

Those of you who have registered your children for the remote option this term, we invite you to come for school pictures on October 2nd

PTA
