River Mill Elementary - March 10, 2023
Congratulations to our Innovative Students of the Month!
Dear River Mill Families,
This next week is an exciting one for our school district. On Tuesday, March 14th, we have the honor of hosting 41 other represented school districts from around the country who are coming to learn about how we incorporate continuous improvement into our regular school days. These visits will be similar to those we have hosted through the course of the year, but at a larger scale. Our students and staff are excited to showcase their hard work and have the opportunity to help others learn how they can implement these practices at their district. This event is one to celebrate with your child, so be sure to ask them about their experience concluding the day's event.
Another quick note, if your child has heely shoes with the wheels in them, these shoes are to remain at home as they are not allowed at school. Thank you for your support with this.

Sports Challenge 2023!
A tradition unlike any other! This year, we will be holding the 35th annual River Mill Sports Challenge!
The sports challenge is a competition for all 5th grade students where 4 teams compete in a series of 10 games and relays that emphasize teamwork, sportsmanship, cooperation, and collaboration. Two teams will compete on Monday March 20th and two more teams will compete on Tuesday March 21st. These semi-final competitions will take place at 6 PM in the River Mill Elementary School gym.
The winners of each night compete against each other during the school day on Thursday March 23rd to be crowned Sports Challenge champions. One team will also earn the title of Best Sportsmanship. The recipients of the Sportsmanship Award get an opportunity to compete against a team of teachers during the last week of the school year.
We welcome and encourage parents to come and attend to support their students! We are also planning to hold an alumni competition each night in this milestone year. On Monday, we hope to host and honor the 8th grade students who missed out on their opportunity to compete in Sports Challenge in 2020. On Tuesday, we hope to host teams of adults who competed back when the competition was held at Eagle Creek Elementary. We hope to see you there!
