Riverglen Parent Newsletter- October 2018

Note from the Principal

Dear RJH Parents/Guardians,

WOW! It's already our sixth week of the year and we are all excited to be back in the "groove" of school. It is looking like 2018/2019 will be incredible at Riverglen! Junior High is often a time when parents begin to feel less connected with their child's school. We don't want that. Keeping you informed about what is happening here at school is critical and sometimes dragging information out of teenagers can be tricky. Knowing this, I will be sending a newsletter every 4-6 weeks so you know what's happening here at school. Additionally, we will send messages through Infinite Campus with reminders or issues that come up that require an immediate release. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions please reach out. Parent feedback and input is always appreciated! At the end of this newsletter, you will find our annual RJH Emergency Response procedures memo and FERPA memo embedded. Hard copies are available in the office if you would like one.

Have a great day!
