Riverview Elementary has been involved in a very successful service project! Service is a great opportunity to teach students about being grateful for the things we have. We want to celebrate being thoughtful of others by having a Christmas Kick-Off Week.
- Dec. 19th – Wear Read & Green to school
- Dec. 20th – Wear an ugly Christmas sweater
- Dec. 21st – Wear a Christmas hat
- Dec. 22nd – Prepare for a ‘Long Winter’s Nap’ – wear pajamas. School Christmas sing-a-long at 9:30.
Nebo Foundation approved our grant of $1,000 and we are expanding our guided reading library with non-fiction short reads for readers from level A to Z. This purchase helps us continue our aim of schooling at Riverview..."for every student to gain at least a year's worth of learning for a year's input."
Short-reads allow teachers to have a small-group lesson that can be completed in 20 min. with the focus on understanding text complexity.
Thank you Nebo Foundation for your generous support of our efforts!
The 6th grade orchestra performed for Riverview students. The orchestra performed Three Blind Mice, Are You Sleeping, Mary Had A Little Lamb, Silent Night, What Child Is This, Ode To Joy, and Jolly Old St. Nicolas. Riverview students had a fun time singing along to Jingle Bells. Thank you 6th grade orchestra for all of your time and hard work. It was a wonderful concert!
Riverview third graders learned about the many ways other countries celebrate Christmas. Students chose a country and created items to represent what the country celebrates and then wrote about the celebrations. Students had a great time learning about other countries celebrations.
The 5th graders created a wonderful Wax Museum. 5th grade students researched and summarized the lives of many people who helped shape history. Riverview students and families were able to visit and learn about famous historical figures. Thank you 5th grade for your time and preparation. It was an excellent event!
