River Mill Elementary - September 15, 2023
Dear River Mill Families,
Thank you for your support and participation with our One School, One Book event. It has been great engaging our students in a shared conversation about the book each day. This will continue for the next few weeks as we read through Wonder together.
This year, in order to engage with our families more, we are planning to hold special nights for targeted grade levels. The first one we will be holding this week! Kindergarten families, this is for you. On Tuesday, September 19th, we would love for you to join us from 5:00-6:00 to go over some details about how we operate and provide time for some questions and answers. Please see the link below to get your HomeTown Tickets for this event. Children are welcomed!
All families, If you have not yet, don't forget to get your HomeTown Tickets for our Bingo Night which is coming up fast! We are excited for the fun we will have together on Thursday, September 21st at 6:00pm! More details can be found below.
Now that we have settled into our routines and procedures at school, we are diving into the work! We are here to help your child grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Teachers have worked hard to understand each child's strengths and areas of growth. Now that this information is available, our instructional routines will really help your child achieve! You might even hear your child tell you about some goal setting they are doing as a class, and also for themselves. We encourage you to ask your child specific questions about their goals for this year!
Finally, we ask that you support your child to develop the nightly routine of reading (to you, with you, or silently) for at least 20 minutes each night. You will be surprised at the confidence this simple routine will create.
Principal, River Mill Elementary

One School, One Book
This year, we will not be purchasing books for families, but we will be reading and sending you a video of a section of the story on weeknights. We want everyone to just enjoy this story as a family and as a school community. We hope this helps students to establish a routine of reading and enjoyment of books! If you want to explore checking the book out at your local library or purchase a copy yourself, we highly encourage you to do so.
All Smiles Community Oral Health
All Smiles Community Oral Health will be providing free dental screenings, sealants, and fluoride at your child’s school in the week of October 30th. Healthy teeth are important to your child’s overall health. A dental screening is a quick look inside your child’s mouth to check the overall health of their teeth. Dental sealants are protective coatings put on the back teeth to prevent cavities and fluoride is a vitamin that is brushed on the teeth to make teeth stronger and prevent cavities.

Weather Changes & Clothes
If your child gets super wet at recess or has a bathroom accident, we do not have extra clothes for them. For all students, Pre-K to 5th grade, please have a spare outfit (including socks) in your child's backpack. This will help make them more comfortable while they are at school.
