December Updates

Time is going by so quickly. As we enter December, please make sure to check the Google calendars as we have quite a few holiday events approaching.

Also, remind students to wear winter clothing (coats, hats, gloves) to school as students will continue to go outside when the weather permits. Especially in the elementary grades, please label these items with your child's name.

Thank you to all of our Three Rivers staff, students, and families for helping make this a successful year so far. We are excited to keep the momentum going.

On November 5, 2022, the Taylor Band competed in the Mid-States Band Association Class 1A Championships. Taylor competed against 25 bands from the tri-state region.

Taylor advanced to finals placing 8th with a score of 66.1 and also receiving the caption of the best guard, which is a first in school history.

This has been an excellent season for the Yellowjackets as they have placed first at Campbell County High School winning best general effect and music. Additionally, they placed second at Mason and West Clermont High school and won the best guard at both of those shows.


On November 17th and 18th, 2nd graders welcomed special "dudes" in their life to join them for a mini-concert and quality time at Donuts with Dudes. Three Rivers Elementary Principal, Adam Biedenbach, said that "not every student has a dad present in their lives. We wanted to offer an opportunity for our second graders to have a special time set aside at school to nurture a positive relationship our students have with a man in their life." Students chose high school brothers, uncles, dads, grandpas, and family friends to join them for this unique experience.

The cowboy theme was embraced by everyone and students were eager to "giddy up" and hit the stage to sing country songs to their dudes. Elementary music teacher, Miss Young did a fantastic job preparing for the fun event. The PTO volunteers provided donuts, juice, chocolate milk, and coffee to make the morning even more enjoyable.

The students' faces lit up when they saw their "dude" in the audience. The family-like environment is what we strive to cultivate at Three Rivers.

On November 7, 2022, the Taylor HS Street Law class went downtown for a field trip. They started the day with Judge Ginocchio and Bailiff BT Greene at the Hamilton County Justice Center to see the judge in action during arraignment court.

The class then walked over to visit the Hamilton County Commissioners' offices and met with Commissioner Denise Driehaus. She talked to the students about all of the things that the county is responsible for and the work they have done with FC Cincinnati, the Bengals, and the new concert venue at the Banks. We walked further down Court Street to City Hall where we met with Mayor Aftab Pureval who took students' questions about his journey through law school, various other positions he has held in the government, and the work he currently does at City Hall. It was a great day, where students saw a lot of the curriculum in action, gained life experiences, and, after 6,000 steps, experienced three field trips in one day.

A huge thanks to Mr. Driehaus, Mrs. Rudisell, and Mr. Makin for assisting with making connections and supervising the students.


As part of the District's Sources of Strength Mentor Program, each new season is welcomed with a chance to engage with one another and focus on positivity and kindness. As we "fall" into the season of thankfulness, students were tasked with an activity to write what they were thankful for on a leaf. The leaves were then placed in the cafeteria for others to read.

Students expressed thankfulness for everything from their mom to bottomless breadsticks at Olive Garden. The one thing that was noticed is that every student had something to be grateful for. What a great reminder this season.


At Three Rivers, the acronym STEP UP is used to identify the District's Strategic Plan and goals.

Successful Students - Talented Staff - Efficient Operations - Positive School Culture - Unified for Progress

All staff is reminded of the importance of all five pillars and the value they each have on our culture and overall success. Whatever role you have in the District, you matter and you have a huge opportunity to have a positive impact on students.

Recently, the TRLSD Transportation Department received an email that was a great reminder of the importance all employees have in the lives of students. The email was sent as follows.

I wanted to give some positive recognition to one of your drivers, Mrs. Mur. My son is in kindergarten at Our Lady of the Visitation and rides a Three Rivers Bus with Mrs. Mur as the driver. I had informed Mrs. Mur that my son would be out of school for over a week for an upcoming surgery. While he was out, she had all the kids on the bus sign their names on a card for him, and she delivered it along with a gift to our house. My son was so surprised and excited! It was really such a sweet and thoughtful gesture, and she went above and beyond to make him feel special and appreciated. I wanted to recognize her effort for making such a positive impact on my son, and also the other kids on the bus route.

Maryann, better known to many as Mrs. Mur, understands what it means to STEP UP. It doesn't matter if you attend Three Rivers or a neighboring school, if you are on Mrs. Mur's bus, you are important.

Bus drivers start and end the day for their student riders. Three Rivers bus drivers strive to ensure no matter what happens in between that students are greeted with a warm welcome in the morning and returned home with a friendly goodbye in the evening. We thank the parent willing to remind us that each and every one of us has the power to have a positive impact on others, even when it means taking the extra "STEP".
