Principal Moment

I wish the Riverview families a glittery, sparkly, joyful Christmas.  May the holiday season become merrier for you with good health and lots of smiles!  Have a wonderful Christmas! 

Food Drive-Cans for Kids

We truly appreciate the tremendous support!  The supply of food and clothing this year has been the best we have had yet! 

Learner Powers/Animal Characters

This month we are learning to Think like Ellie Elephant.  Ellie is a cute little elephant.  She was born with big ears and a big brain.   When she goes to school, she uses her ears to listen carefully because she knows that it helps her think.  Ellie knows that once she learns something, she will never forget.  She also knows that thinking and learning is going to help her do hard things; uproot trees, carry heavy bundles on her back, and stop charging lions.  She goes to school, uses her big ears and big brain to learn everything her teacher prepares.  At the end of the day, her mother greets her with a thunderous trumpet and gentle nudge and tells her how proud she is that she is learning to think.  Don’t be afraid to think like Ellie Elephant.

When you think like Ellie Elephant, you…

  • Manage distractions
  • Get lost in the task
  • Break things down
  • Plan and think it through
  • Draw diagrams, write down thoughts or things that help you think
