Riverview is happy to announce September's Stand Strong Honorees. Each of the students did a kind act such as saying "thank you" when receiving his lunch, by repeating the stand strong steps, helping someone who was hurt, and by being there for someone who needed help. Great job for Standing Strong!  Keep up the great work!

First Grade Celebrates Zero the Hero!

Submitted by alyssa.mathis on

1st grade recognized Zero the Hero on the 10th and 20th days of school.  To solidify number sense, the students created a tie-dyed shirt with a zero pattern on the 10th day of school.  The shirts were prepared by the teachers and Zero the Hero delivered them on the 20th day.  The students and teachers loved the excitement and recognition of the zero as a place holder.  They look forward to more visits from Zero!  Please help share the excitement of the zero days in school by reminding children and neighbors to wear their shirts!

Thank You First Responders

Submitted by alyssa.mathis on

On Patriot Day, September 11, Mrs. Nielson and Mrs. Callister's second grade class invited the First Responders of Spanish Fork City to Riverview to say thank you for the work they do to help our community.  Some of our local firefighters, EMTs and Police Officers brought their vehicles and gear to show to all of the Second Graders.  We learned a lot, and enjoyed giving our thank you letters to these everyday heroes.

Egg Drop

Submitted by alyssa.mathis on

The 4th grade classes at Riverview demonstrated their understanding of the scientific method with an egg drop.  The goal was to not let their egg crack after being dropped off the roof of the school.  Students built their own project in hopes of keeping their egg safe.  Students took notes on the process of the scientific method. The students enjoyed watching their eggs fall from the roof to see if they would survive.
