Greetings Colts Families,
Congratulations our girl's basketball team for winning their championship game versus Ramirez on Tuesday. Thank you to Coach Rene and our girls for a great season. Our Blood Drive was a huge success thanks to our staff, parents and community members who donated blood. Thanks to our collective effort we donated over fifty pints of life saving blood!
Lastly, we would like to congratulate Mr. Barry Williams, Dean of River Heights on his promotion. Mr. Williams will now be serving as an assistant principal at Corona High School. Congratulations, Mr. Williams, once a Colt, always a Colt!
Have a great week, Colts.
Eva Isett, Ed.D.
Does your student need extra academic support? Below are some of the academic interventions we have available:
- Homework club: every Tuesday and Friday in room D209 from 2:30-3:30
Organization support with paraeducators in the library: Every Wednesday from 1:30-2:30
Check out some of the ways our counselors support our Colts!
- Our counseling team is continuing to support our students with a 2.0 or below. Your student should have received a green folder with a progress report and assignment tracker. Please review the tracker with your students. This tracker is a guide on how to complete missing assignments.
- We are hosting Backpack Cleanout this Wednesday, 11/15. Please encourage your student to come clean out their bags. They will earn PBIS points, a small prize and be entered into a lunch raffle! Last month we have over 200 Colts show up!. We are hoping to see many more.
- Our theme for November is GRATITUDE! We are posting resources in our google classroom that spark great conversations and deep reflection of what it means to be grateful. Students are able to complete a gratitude worksheet and submit it to their counselor for a treat!
We value safety
Parents and guardians, please know that our River Height's staff and faculty value our student’s safety and wellbeing. Our team has streamlined our reporting system to ensure students report incidents to staff.

Thank you parents and guardians for supporting us in creating a safe learning environment for our students.
