Partnering with Parents for Student Achievement
A "Message" from the Principal
Dear Parent(s) and Riverview Rams:
March is upon us! As we spring into this new month, we are witnessing our scholars successfully transitioning into the third quarter of our teaching and learning. Semester grades have been entered onto transcripts and each of you should have received a progress report for your scholar. We know that many of our freshmen and sophomore scholars are still adjusting to high school expectations, including the understanding of credits and grade point averages. Please know that we are diligently working to support each of their individual needs. We cannot do this work alone. We need your support. Please take a moment to review your child's grades in our SIS portal for the first semester and now progress report. If your child did not earn at least three (3) credits for the first semester, we need to work towards an action plan to assist them with getting them back on track. A scholar has an opportunity to earn up to 4 credits per semester and must earn a total of 24 credits to successfully meet the requirements for graduation. It is imperative that all scholars do their very best for the third quarter and finish the year strong.
This second semester represents a time of springing forward and slowly transitioning to a sense of normalcy while remaining committed to the health and safety of our high school scholars and staff. While mask mandates are no longer in place for many areas, we continue to encourage our scholars and staff to wear them to support the health and safety of all. Please also be advised of the following:
- Classes begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. Please encourage your child to get to school and class on time each day. Frequent tardiness to class and school takes away from the instructional process and can reduce the chance for success. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school year, or approximately 17 days, can negatively impact a scholar's academic performance.
- Scholars earn one half credit for each class taken. It is imperative that scholars do their very best in each of their classes. Any class failed must be taken again until the course is successfully completed.
- Scholars must adhere to behavioral expectations on any and all district properties, including our bus transportation. Please discuss the importance of positive interactions at school and refrain from any negative behaviors on social media or in the community that could ultimately cause issues on our campus.
Our return to in person learning this school year has been a true test of our strength, our perseverance in working to address trauma, our commitment to the health and safety of all. With your unwavering support, we have proven that we are indeed stronger together! We remain committed to each scholar’s success and will do what it takes to assist you as you work to finish the 21-22 school year strong. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call. Our team can be reached at: 314-869-4700. Thank you in advance for your assistance in making this year one for academic and personal growth. We are forever RAM Strong!
