Ms. McAvoy's and Mrs. Cook's first grade classes participated in White Ribbon Week by wearing crazy hair and crazy clothes to school. Students learned it is important to keep personal information and passwords private.
Mrs. Moody's second grade class participated in White Ribbon Week by wearing a hoodie or a hat. Students learned they can protect their minds by letting someone know if something online makes them feel uncomfortable.
Mrs. Chamber's, Mrs. Mathis' and Mrs. Lacrua's third grade classes dressed in yellow for White Ribbon Week. Students learned the importance to proceed with CAUTION when downloading. Students promised to not download anything without my parents' permission.
Students at Riverview had a good citizenship reward on Friday, January 20th – The first (annual?!) Snow Fest. Snow Fest was a fun day bringing classes together to celebrate being a good Riverview citizen and also enjoy…SNOW!
Each class built a snowman. Simple, right? The snowman had to fall into one of the three categories. The categories were:
Riverview third graders and sixth graders met Officer Cory Grover after reading and discussing the story “Aero and Officer Mike.” Officer Grover brought his police dog and talked with the students about the training that he and his dog went through together. Officer Grover explained how his police dog is a loyal partner and they work together every day. Students had a great time making connections from reading "Aero and Officer Mike" and meeting Officer Grover and his police dog. Thank you for your service!
White Ribbon Week is scheduled for January 23rd - 27th. Each day we will focus on a different way we can be smart and safe online. There will be a dress-up theme to emphasize the idea for each day. Students can earn tickets for prize drawings at the end of the week by dressing up, wearing their white bracelet each day (handed out on Monday), writing an essay ( grades 3-6) or coloring a picture (grades K-2), and signing the pledge.
Second graders performed their Christmas program for Riverview students and parents. The songs were fun to learn and were all about having a “Nice, nice, Christmas.” Students had so much fun singing about decorating trees, and asking Santa for what they wished for. The students grooved to the music as they sang about reindeer dancing on their days off from work. The second grade provided fun entertainment for everyone!
Riverview students got ready for the Christmas break by having a school wide Christmas Sing-A-Long. Mrs. Killian led the school in Christmas songs. Santa Claus made a special visit to Riverview. All of the students did a great job and it really got everyone in the Christmas spirit.
