Principal's Message

Dear Falcon Families,

Greetings, and welcome to the year 2020 and the start of a new decade! I hope everyone had a restful break and is ready to kick off a new semester! First semester ended with many exciting activities that brought our Riverview community together, and second semester is equally as full of opportunities to come together to grow, celebrate, and support our students and families.

Looking ahead, here are many of the highlights for the Spring Semester to mark on your calendar!

  • Jan. 17 – PTA Sweetheart Dance
  • Jan. 22 – All Pro Dads Breakfast
  • Jan. 26 – Falcon Family Fun Day at Snow Creek
  • Feb. 12 - Classroom Valentine's Day parties
  • Feb. 12-13 - Parent-Teacher Conferences
  • Feb. 21 - BINGO Night
  • March 7 - Parents Night Out Spring Fundraiser Auction
  • April 6 - All Pro Dads Breakfast
  • May 1 - Spring Fling
  • May 8 - Field Day

Last week teachers and staff were working behind the scenes, receiving professional development for reading, math, and leadership skills, and we are all excited for the ability to apply our new knowledge to teaching and learning. Thank you for checking your students' second quarter grade cards on Friday, January 10, to stay updated on their progress. If you have any questions about grade cards, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher, we welcome the opportunity to work alongside parents in the interest of our Falcons!

Here's to a new year, and best of luck to everyone setting a New Year's Resolution....perhaps you can explain your Resolution to your child as your very own Wildly Important Goal (WIG). Students and teachers will be setting new WIGS for the start of third quarter, and I am excited to see all that will be accomplished in the weeks and months ahead.

Make it a great January!
