Here's What's Happening at Riverview
A MESSAGE FROM MS. POULSON
Can you believe it is already November? Time is flying by. I have loved visiting classes and seeing how hard our students are working everyday. Thank you for all of the work you do at home, and for making it a priority to have your students here and on time for school so that they don't miss important instructional time.
We had a lot of fun at Riverview in October! The Halloween Parade was successful, and it was so fun to see all of the different costumes. Thank you to our wonderful PTA for putting on our Book Fair and thank you to all of you for supporting our Book Fair. It makes my teacher heart so happy to see how excited our students get for their new books.
As the weather is turning colder, please make sure that your child comes to school each day dressed to be outside. If you need help with getting your child a coat, please let me or Mrs. Sullivan know. We will be outside every day unless it is raining heavily, actively snowing, or if the temperature is below 20 degrees.
Thanksgiving break this year will be November 22nd - 24th. I have received a few questions about SEP's for 2nd term. They will be held on December 13th and 14th. We will send out a sign-up when they get closer.
Happy November! Have a wonderful month!
SCHOOL PLAY AUDITIONS
Mrs. Grant has decided to put on another school play this year, and we are so excited! The school play is for 3rd - 5th grade students. This year's play will be Finding Nemo. All 3rd - 5th grade students that are interested in being in the play are welcome to come and audition. Auditions are Nov. 8 and 9 from 3:15-4:15pm in the gym. Kids need to sing a short section of a song of their choice at auditions. Please click on the Link to signup for an audition time.
Veterans Day will be celebrated Friday, November 10, 2023. The American Legion will be coming to put on an assembly for us at 12:50 PM that day. We would like to invite any veterans that are related to our students here at Riverview, to come to our assembly if they would like to. If you would like to come, please RSVP to our secretary at email@example.com so that we know how many will be joining us.
We would like to add pictures of our veterans to our display that we are putting up in the hall. If you have a picture you would like to add, please either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can bring a hard copy in to the school that we can scan.
Also, we would like to have all of our students wear red, white and blue to school on Veterans Day.
We will be having a Turkey Trot during lunch recess on Monday, November 20th and Tuesday, November 21st. All students are invited to participate, but do not have to if they would not like to. If your student would like to participate, please make sure that they wear clothes and shoes that they don't mind running in.
We will be setting up a track on the field. For every lap, students will get a ticket to put in our drawing. We will pull tickets for some fun prizes during our Gobble Contest assembly on the afternoon of Tuesday, the 21st.
Let's hear your best turkey gobble! Each class will be holding a Gobble Contest. The winner from each class will compete to be the best turkey gobbler in their grade. The contest will be during an assembly on Tuesday the 21st. If your child is participating in the contest, we will let you know so that you can come if you would like.
