Veterans' Day Assembly

Submitted by amy.nelson on

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!

Take A Veteran to School Day

Submitted by amy.nelson on

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!

Red Ribbon Week Highlights

Submitted by amy.nelson on

We sure have learned a lot this week at Riverview for Red Ribbon Week.  From policemen and paramedics, to the K9 unit, these community workers helped us see how important is it to be drug free.  They encouraged us to stay healthy so that we can be happy.

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?
