5th Grade Ice Cream Social "Sweet" Success!

Thank you, PTA for always making our 5th graders feel so special and providing opportunities to socialize and have fun with each other!

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!

5th grade students "Skyped a Scientist" (using BlueJeans and Polycom to connect across country) last week and learned all they wanted to know about bugs, ants, and invertebrates! Dr. Greg Pask, Assistant Professor of Biology at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, answered a plethora of student questions about ants, invertebrates, and anything else they wanted to know about his field of expertise!

Virtual Reality and Google Expedition!

3rd grade students had an opportunity to explore different parts of the world using virtual reality goggles and Google Expedition! This experience brought learning about sharks and the ocean, rain forest habitats, and other amazing ecosystems up close and personal! Instead of traveling to other parts of the world, the world came to Riverside!

What's For Lunch?

All for Lunch and Lunch for All supports Riverside! Click the link below to learn how you can support this program.

The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over the Lazy Dog!

Who remembers that sentence when YOU learned typing? Every letter of the alphabet is touched when you type that sentence! Here at Riverside, we've moved beyond the fox and the dog. 4th grade students love typing, and this mini lesson provided the purpose behind "the why." These Riverside 4th graders are dedicated to learning and applying keyboarding skills that will take them beyond college and career!

Let's Celebrate

We're excited to meet with parents and celebrate your student's successes at Riverside so far this year! Make sure to schedule your time to meet with the teacher.
