The Roadrunner Review

November 18th, 2022

Notes from the Principal

Next week, construction will begin at Riverview as fencing was installed around the south end of our building. Please make sure you read through the new drop-off and pick-up procedures, as there will not be a pathway from our south parking lot to the playground. If you have any questions, please reach out and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate through this process.

Monday, November 21st and Tuesday, November 22nd, the front circle drive will be closed. If you are visiting the school anytime during those two days, you will need to utilize street parking.

November's Goal

We have made it! We reached our goal of 500 items collected! Congratulations to our 1st grade students and teachers who led us through this goal setting! They demonstrated their understanding of Habit 2, which is 'Begin With the End in Mind,' and Habit 6, which is 'Synergize.' We want to also thank all the families who donated the items to the Neighbor's Place, as it is much appreciated.
