Drum Magic

Submitted by amy.nelson on Wed, 11/09/2011 - 17:14

Students in Mrs. Nelson's music class received a surprise from our neighbor and parent of students at Riverview, Mr. Burrs.  Last week he brought in his hand-made drums for the kids to see and listen to.  Students had a great time listening to the different tones and sounds the drums and instruments made.  He is welcome any time with his creations!

Another fabulous and fun Halloween at Riverview! It was a great day that ended with a parade in perfect weather.  Happy Halloween!

Voracious Readers

vo-ra-cious (adj.) 1. craving or consuming large quantities... (in this case- books!) a voracious appetite.

2. exceedingly eager or avid: voracious readers; a voracious collector.   (Dictionary.com)

We at Riverview are voracious readers.  That's another reason why we LOVE the book fair!  So many new and fun books right at our fingertips!  Students were able to add to their home collections, and teachers received new and exciting titles for their classroom libraries.  Thanks to the PTA for hosting a fantastic fair.  It was 'out of this world'!

Keeping Fit While Being Safe

Submitted by amy.nelson on Thu, 10/27/2011 - 22:37

Our PTA helped us celebrate a week of learning and fun as we talked about how to be safe when we walk to school and ride our bikes.  The grand finale of this learning fun was our Walk to School Day where students who walked to school met UVU's Willy the Wolverine and received a water bottle and granola bar.  Walking and riding bikes to school helps us keep our fitness goals, and now we know how to be safe while doing so!
