Yes, we have our very own "Princess Club" at Riverview, and it is......OH SO CUTE!!! One has to see it to believe it. The room is filled with glitter and glam, perfume, makeup, shimmer, shine, bling, high heels, sparkly purses and all the trinquets and extras any little girl can dream of. Last week, the princess club worked on designing their own hair-dos. They, of course, walked the run-way, and showed of their beautiful new hair-dos that they created. It was quite the fashion show.

The 5th graders recently held their annual wax museum. Students at Riverview were very lucky to meet  many famous people all in the same place, and all at the same time. Some of the wax museum figures included: Helen Keller, Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, and Elvis the King- himself. The 5th graders did a great job and the 5th grade teachers did a great job putting the show together. Way to go, 5th grade team!!!

Ballet West Comes to Riverview!

Ballet West came to Riverview Elementary. They taught the students different dance techniques, then asked the students to try them, and TRY them they did! The movements were a lot more difficult than the students thought!

Ballet West performed some of their dances from Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Puss in Boots.The dancers came out in costume, and the students did not make a sound- as the dancers mesmerized the students, with their ability to spin on their toes, maintain perfect balance and leap high into the air.
