First grade classes and Mrs. LeMmon’s third grade class celebrated Arbor Day at Spanish Trails Boulevard Retention Basin. Students participated in a program by singing, reading a reader’s theater, reading essays about the earth, and planting trees. Students were able to meet Smokey Bear. Smokey Bear reminded students to be careful with fires, never play with matches or lighters, always watch campfires, and always put campfires completely out. Thank you students for a wonderful program!
Riverview students attended a bike show assembly. At the bike show the students learned it is always important to wear a helmet that fits. Students also learned to check that the bike chain is on correctly, the breaks are working, the handlebars are tight, and the tires have air. Two Riverview students participated in checking two bikes to make sure they were safe to ride. Thank you for the bike safety tips!
