Every February our school is invited to Spanish Fork High School to watch a theater production.  Some of our students have never seen a live theater production before.  It is a wonderful cultural experience for all of them.

This trip is always extra special because several Riverview Rams are always in the production.

To celebrate the hundredth day of school, young children all over the country sing songs, shout cheers, read books, count numbers, chant poems, make murals, and string Froot Loop necklaces.  When I was a kid, no one celebrated 100th Day.  Now it’s huge. 

Monday, Riverview students in grades 1 - 6 will celebrate the 100th day of school (Kindergarten will celebrate the 100th day on February 3rd.)

I’m a grandmother.  Students hear that and think I am Mother Time.  It is kinda depressing to see the wrinkles and gray appear.  I don’t feel old.  Makes me think of a line from the book Goodbye, Mr. Chips.  It is a book of an old teacher and school master who remembers his career and his personal life over the decades.  There is a line in the book that illuminates how I feel about my job…”It must be tremendously interesting to be a schoolmaster…I don’t see how you could ever get old in a world that’s always young.”

I consider myself a classroom teacher.  I am constantly asking myself: Have I taught them

Have I taught them how to think when the answer isn’t right there? 

Have I taught them the joy of learning? 

Have I taught them the satisfaction you feel when you do your best?  

Have I taught them that it is OK to make mistakes?

Have I taught them that learning is lifelong?

Monday is Columbus Day.  On Columbus Day, I used to tell my students about the discovery of America.  Everyone knows the story, of course – how Christopher Columbus sailed the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria in 1492 in search of a shorter route to the Indies.  Columbus kept a log during his voyage.  He reported that when the wind was strong, his ships made a lot of progress.  When it wasn’t, they made very little.  As the weeks went on, the crews grew restless.  Storms brought trouble.  Supplies became limited.  Some of the food went bad.

Third Grade Scientists!

Thanksgiving Point visited Riverview third graders. Third graders were scientists as they observed and investigated mealworms and tulip bulbs. They discussed the differences between living and nonliving things. The third graders loved being scientists and learning new things! Be on the lookout for our classes’ new terrariums (featuring mealworms)!
