Principal Moment

Welcome back, Riverview students, families and teachers, to 2022!  We hope you all were able to have wonderful celebrations with family and friends these past few months.  Despite challenges over the past year, there are always splendid things to celebrate!

January is a great time to talk about goal setting with students and Riverview students are setting some great goals for the upcoming year: “I will learn to read good.”, “My resolution is being nicer to people and get more baskets in basketball.”, “I want to be with my big sister because she is always busy.”, “This year my goal is to be nicer to my big brothers.  I picked this goal because I want to be a better sister.  I can achieve my goal by saying I am sorry and doings things that they want to do to.”, “This year my goal is exercise every day.  I picked this goal because I want to be healthier.  I can achieve my goal by working out.”

If you are trying to generate ideas for personal goals for the upcoming year, just ask a child.  Children are constantly reminding us of what is important…spend more time reading, building relationships with the ones we love and exercise to feel good.

Acadience

Now that the holidays are behind us, we come to the heart of our school year.   Teachers are conscientiously teaching the core content that students should know in each grade level.  Soon students will be demonstrating their learning as they will be participating in our Middle of Year Acadience testing. 

Please help students do their best to be well rested and on time to school.  With the many viruses and illnesses that accompany the winter months, please encourage good eating, sleeping habits, and hand washing.  If your child is showing symptoms of illness, please keep them at home until symptoms subside.

Congratulations Riverview Good Citizens!
