The Roadrunner Review

October 7, 2022

Notes from the Principal

This month, we have been practicing our leadership through our routines and procedures in the common areas around the school. This week, we focused on our behaviors in the cafeteria. When students were "caught" showing these behaviors, they were awarded a Roadrunner Riches ticket. As a school, we have set a goal each day and every day we have surpassed that goal! By the end of the month, we hope to collect 10,000 tickets as a school. If we meet this goal, we will have a school-wide celebration at the end of the month!

As of October 6, we have raised $1,240 total in

online sales and donations.

This represents a bit more than 10% of our goal!

Thank you to all who are selling and donating!!!

All checks for donations & Club's Choice sales should be made to: Riverview PTO

Payment for Club's Choice items should be turned in with the order forms.

If you are not selling Club's Choice items, or if you're only selling them online, you can recycle the Club's Choice materials.

If we reach our $12,000 goal,

students will earn a PJ Day with Donuts provided by the PTO!
