To honor Veteran’s Day, Riverview students had the privilege to meet veterans on Friday, November 8. The veterans introduced themselves and presented a patriotic slide show. Mrs. Nelson led Riverview students in singing a patriotic song. We appreciate the sacrifices veterans have made so we can be free.
For Health and Safety Week at Riverview, students participated in several activities. They attended a K9 assembly and met Willy Wolverine. They pledged to be healthy and safe by signing their names on puzzle pieces. They showed their excitement for health and safety by dressing up each day. Mrs. Barnett’s AM class and Mrs. Jenson’s class participated the most and tied for the spirit award.
Mrs. Barnett’s, Mrs. Rogers' and Miss. Hansen's classes were excited to have Mr. Rowley come in and read them an Otis book. They were able to listen to the fun story and answer some meaningful questions about the author's purpose. Gage and Kade Christensen were super excited because they were able to listen to their grandpa read the story to their classes. Thank you Mr. Rowley for taking time out of your busy schedule to read to our classes! We appreciate it.
Riverview student council participated in an assembly for the Riverview Fall Fundraiser. Students will be selling Cherrydale Chocolate Bars and Jack Links Beef Sticks. The fundraiser began on October 1st and will end on October 14th. Our school goal is to raise $10,000. If we meet our goal, all students, regardless of student participation, will be able to participate in a school carnival.
Bobby Lawrence Karate was able to come and visit Riverview 4th graders. They taught them about the ABC's of Success! The students loved participating and learning goal setting and accomplishing. They had the opportunity to practice some karate and show off some side kick moves they learned.
THANK YOU TO BOBBY LAWRENCE KARATE!
Mrs. Nielson & Mrs. Callister's 2nd Grade Class have been talking about the jobs within their local community and on Patriot Day, September 11, invited Officer Hooley of the Spanish Fork Police Department to come talk about the service he provides to our community. The students got a chance to learn how he helps others in his job and how he decided as a kid, to one day grow up to be a policeman. It was a very positive experience for the students to meet a policeman, and a great way for them to honor one of our local community helpers on this special day of rememberance.
The 4th grade classes at Riverview were able to demonstrate their understanding of the scientific method by building their own project to keep their raw egg from cracking after being dropped off the roof of the school. The students enjoyed watching their eggs fall from the roof to see if they would survive.
