Notes from the Principal

Next week, construction will begin at Riverview and fencing is being installed around the south end of our building. Please make sure you read through the new drop-off and pick-up procedures, as there will not be a pathway from our south parking lot to the playground. If you have any questions, please reach out.

Leaders Needed

We are looking for YEARBOOK leaders! Jamie Hoover is leading the way, but she would welcome other helpers! Please contact us at this email address if you have a passion for helping students create a lasting record of the 2022-2023 school year!

The Fish Tank in Riverview's Lobby needs a caretaker. This role would require about two hours of work per month. Ms. Beth, Riverview's head custodian, would provide training. Please let us know if you can help maintain the Fish Tank.

Thanks to the 3rd Grade Families for Wednesday's Staff Appreciation Treats!
