Riverview helped our local veterans celebrate. They watched them post and retire the flag, play taps, and hear about their commitment to our country. Students sang patriotic songs for them and Mrs. LemMon's first grade class wrote them a thank you letter. Thanks to all of those who have served our country. Happy Veterans' Day!
Second grade students celebrated "Take A Veteran to School" on Friday, November 9th. Students invited a veteran in to visit the classroom with them. Many were parents and grandparents who have served in the military throughout many different situations and wars. One student's father is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Students learned what it means when they put their hands over their hearts in saluting the flag, and how the military men and women vow to protect them so that they can enjoy all that they can do in life. They also learned a march and cadence from the Air Force! They wrote a thank you star for the veterans and got their autographs as well.
It's Red Ribbon week at Riverview, with a week full of fun and learning about how to keep away from the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. On Tuesday, faculty and students dressed as their superhero. Here is a picture of the office staff honoring one of our greatest heroes at Riverview- Mr. Canto!
Heroes come to school every day. We appreciate our teachers and parents who help our students learn so much! What's your super power?
Out of 7,000 students throughout the state who participated in "Walk More in Four", we have a winner at Riverview! Kourtney, in Mrs. Jarvis' fourth-grade class won a scooter and helmet from UDOT who sponsored the program, encouraging students to walk or ride to school and practice safe habits. Way to go, Kourtney!!
Scott Sorensen, a mountain man came to Riverview to discuss the importance of being a mountain man and told some exciting tall tales to the fourth graders. The fourth graders had the chance to hear animal calls and touch real animal furs. They also learned some history of mountain men in Utah. Mr. Sorensen was the author of a book called, "Kipawa River Chronicles" that is currently in our library. Thank you Mr. Sorensen for taking the time out of your day to visit our school!
Second Graders were treated to an in-house field trip provided by The Living Planet Aquarium on September 7th. Students learned about the continents, the rain forests, and some the animals and insects that are found there. They were able to touch them, too!
All week long, we are learning about how to be safe in the car and walking or riding our bikes to and from school. The PTA has planned fun activities to help us remember the little things that help keep us safe in a big way. Here is what we've done so far...
We kicked off the week with wearing green and having an assembly with fun games to remind us of safety rules.
We wore mismatched shoes to remind us to "watch our step" and keep safe.
We wore bright colors like they did in the 80s to be seen by cars.
We wore silly socks to remind us to not be silly on our way to school.
Today, Friday, we had Willy the Wolverine from UVU come to help us celebrate "Walk to School" Day. Students also were able to play at lunch recess with our Spanish Fork High School Friends. What a wonderful way to end a wonderful week!
