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!

Mrs. Jarvis was surprised today on her 50th birthday with her faculty and students wearing black and an office donned in black balloons and decorations.  Riverwiew wanted to make it an extra special birthday for her.  Classes wrote cards, sang songs, and Mrs. Jarvis even gave each student a birthday treat, true to form of an elementary school birthday.  Happy Birthday Mrs. Jarvis!!!  We love you!

Riverview received a marvelous gift to start off the holiday season.  Dyer Highway came to sing to us!!  If you haven't heard of Dyer Highway, it's time!  They are amazing group of siblings who write, play, and sing their own songs.  Tel is the oldest at 18, Tiann is 16, and Mady is 14.  They play guitar, fiddle, bass, and many other instruments. Our third grade friend Makayla Hubbs is their cousin who invited them to come and sing to us.  This was their second show at Riverview and we LOVE them!

We had a packed house as most all of the students got to attend.  Only students who showed great citizenship from the beginning of school until now, were able to attend the show.  The students were enthralled with the band and the music.  The students' eyes were *glued* the whole time to the band! We did not want them to stop when the time came!  It was such a fun gift to receive.  Thank you Dyer Highway!  We sure hope you will visit it us again soon!
