The 2011/2012 school year at Riverview will extraordinary!  We have new goals and new ways to be extraordinary.  Mrs. Jarvis introduced a new story to our school titled "Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed" by Emily Pearson and told us about the 'Power of 5'.  The story tells us how a little girl named Mary, who seems quite ordinary, gives her neighbor a basket of blueberries.  That neighbor was so excited, she then bakes some delicious muffins and gives them to 5 people.  Those 5 people were so excited, they did a good deed for 5 more people, and those 5 did good deeds fpr 5 more! And it didn't stop there! So Extraordinary Mary's good deed went a long, long way.  Riverview is adopting the "Power of 5" this year so that each of us can do extraordinary things!  When someone has done a good deed for 5 other people, they can fill out a card in the office letting others know how they are being extraordinary.  Even though it makes us feel good when helping others, it's also good to hear about additional ways we can be helpful.  Be extraordinary!
