Penny Wars


Our penny war starts this week- Monday, April 2 through Friday, April 6!

Our goal is to earn money for memorial benches for our friends at Riverview that have passed away.  We want to remember them with special benches at Riverview.  Carol Walker, Carol Condie, Ian Baker-Pierce, Valeria Gutierrez, and Dax Christensen were all a special part of Riverview.  We love them and miss them dearly.  Help us earn money to remember them and what they meant to us.

Students, bring in your pennies and any silver change you have or find around the house!  You can put your pennies in your classroom jars, or any other classroom's jar.  You can "bomb" another classroom's jar with your silver change.  That class will then lose 5, 10, 25, or 100 points depending on the coin you use to bomb. Your teachers will provide you with more rules.

2 classes will win the most points from pennies, and one class will win with the greatest amount of money earned.


Voracious Writing


It's easy to be a voracious writer when you get to do fun writing projects such as this!  Second graders got to chew up some gum, blow some bubbles, and then teach us how to blow a bubble!  Mrs. Smith, a student teacher in Mrs. Galt's class helped them with this fun activity!

Chess Tournament Winner


Karson Oyler, a first grader at Riverview, won 3rd place at a State Chess Tournament recently.  66 first graders competed .  Karson played 6 games and won 5 of them!  He is very proud of his trophy, and we are all very proud of him!  Great job Karson!!!

Catching Leprechauns

Sherilyn Woodhouse

Second Graders in Mrs. Woodhouse's class tried their very best to outsmart those tricky leprechauns this week!  They made amazing traps, thought long and hard about how to catch one, and wrote about what they would do if they were able to!  They chased and chased, but were eluded once again- but not without a pot of gold goodies from Lewie the Leprechaun. :)

Riverview held its first-ever art show for the parents to see at SEP night.  The entries that students turned in were of such high quality, it was amazing!  One can tell that there is a lot of fun technique and learning going on when it comes to the arts at Riverview! 

This will be an annual event, we're sure!

We've Got Rhythm!


Thanks to various grants, arts programs, Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Jarvis, Riverview is the proud owner of a beautiful set of drums!  Mrs. Nelson is excited to share these with her music classes.  We are going to have a such a great banging away as we learn SO much about music and drums!  Mrs. Jeri Crosby is helping us on our way to becoming expert drummers.

White Ribbon week is going on at Riverview.  Students are learning about how to safely navigate the Worldwide web.  The week is sponsored by the PTA and includes a whole bunch of fun activities to help students remember important tips about how to stay safe.  Students will be collecting tickets for their participation and will be able to put their tickets into a drawing for fun prizes at the end of the week!  Today's message was to remember to only talk to people we know well while online.  Sometimes people pretend to be who they're not.

Here are the winners of the drawing!
