Students at Riverview had a good citizenship reward on Friday, January 20th – The first (annual?!) Snow Fest. Snow Fest was a fun day bringing classes together to celebrate being a good Riverview citizen and also enjoy…SNOW!
Each class built a snowman. Simple, right? The snowman had to fall into one of the three categories. The categories were:
- All About the Numbers – For this category, classes will try to build the tallest and fattest snowman.
- Most Creative – Classes will need to accessorize their snowman (or snow-woman, or snow-family, or snow-animal)
- Teacher Look-a-like – Classes will need to accessorize their snowman to look like a Riverview Employee.
Riverview third graders and sixth graders met Officer Cory Grover after reading and discussing the story “Aero and Officer Mike.” Officer Grover brought his police dog and talked with the students about the training that he and his dog went through together. Officer Grover explained how his police dog is a loyal partner and they work together every day. Students had a great time making connections from reading "Aero and Officer Mike" and meeting Officer Grover and his police dog. Thank you for your service!
White Ribbon Week is scheduled for January 23rd - 27th. Each day we will focus on a different way we can be smart and safe online. There will be a dress-up theme to emphasize the idea for each day. Students can earn tickets for prize drawings at the end of the week by dressing up, wearing their white bracelet each day (handed out on Monday), writing an essay ( grades 3-6) or coloring a picture (grades K-2), and signing the pledge.
MONDAY: Wear something yellow - “Proceed with CAUTION when downloading!”
- I will not download anything without my parents’ permission.
TUESDAY: Wear a hoodie or a hat – “Protect Your Mind!”
- I will crash and tell if anything online makes me feel uncomfortable. I will protect my mind.
WEDNESDAY: Wear crazy hair or crazy clothes – “It is CRAZY to share your personal information!”
- I will keep my personal information and passwords private. I will only share them with a parent.
THURSDAY: Wear a scarf or tie – “Don’t get tied up in cyber bullying!”
- I will not view, share, or pass along negative or embarrassing information.
FRIDAY: Wear white or Riverview shirts – “Let’s remember White Ribbon Week all year round!”
- I will encourage those around me to make smart choices in media and online.
Second graders performed their Christmas program for Riverview students and parents. The songs were fun to learn and were all about having a “Nice, nice, Christmas.” Students had so much fun singing about decorating trees, and asking Santa for what they wished for. The students grooved to the music as they sang about reindeer dancing on their days off from work. The second grade provided fun entertainment for everyone!
Riverview students got ready for the Christmas break by having a school wide Christmas Sing-A-Long. Mrs. Killian led the school in Christmas songs. Santa Claus made a special visit to Riverview. All of the students did a great job and it really got everyone in the Christmas spirit.
With the more severe weather conditions of winter we wanted to review our procedures to both reassure and help parents and patrons prepare and plan.
- We recommend that students arrive at school no earlier than 8:00 for supervision purposes. The building will be open for students to wait for the start of class in a warm gym or the hall by the auditorium/cafeteria.
- Children should arrive at school dressed for the weather of the day so they can safely and comfortably enjoy recesses. In winter months, children should remember to bring shoes to change into from their snow boots. All healthy children will be expected to go out for recess except in extreme weather conditions (wind chill, rain, snow, etc.).
- If your child cannot participate in recess for health reasons, please send a note to this effect. If it is to be a prolonged indoor stay (longer than 3 days) please send a note from the doctor.
- Students will remain inside in extreme weather conditions such as: very cold temperatures (below 20 degrees) and wind chill, heavy rain and snowfall, unhealthy air/inversions (we check air quality daily).
- Please be considerate and safety conscious as you drop off and pick up students at school. The winter months see an increase in the number of cars. Remember to: not block the flow of traffic (inside lanes are for waiting/sitting; outside lanes for quick stops and pull through), not block cross walk area, use parking stalls not pull through lanes if you need to enter the building.
- In the event of a major weather event (severe storm, power outage…) The District’s ParentLink system will be used to notify parents this can be in the form of an automated phone call, text, or email. For this information to reach you it is important that you keep your contact information current within the online SIS system. Information will also be posted and updated on the district web page www.nebo.edu. If we need to evacuate the school we would go to the LDS Church (on 550 South). All teachers and staff members will remain at school to care for the students. Unless otherwise notified, we will release students only to responsible adults or family members.
