Good afternoon Riverton families!
Are you on Twitter?
If you are on Twitter please follow @Riverton_School. I will be using Twitter to share one way communications of all of the great work our staff and students are engaged in. I will also use Twitter to share important reminders. This will not replace our website, newsletters or Instagram, it is simply another way to build our communication to the community.
Mr. Zagorski - Parent Reflection
As the parent of a 6th & 8th grader I often look for tools to help me on my own parenting journey! One tool I found to be helpful was Angela Duckworth's Character Lab Tip of the Week. What is Character Lab? Click here to read more. This tip is sent every Sunday morning, topics range from belonging, to grit, compassion, etc. They are super quick reads so I would recommend you give them a try!
