Daily Routines

A HUGE THANK YOU to our families and students for following the procedures we put in place this school year. A few reminders to make the school year run smooth:

  • Vehicles dropping off in the morning please pull all the way forward then unload. Have your child ready when you enter the drop off lane. Get them in the habit of opening the car door and getting out on their own. ( We know this will take a little bit practice for our youngest students).
  • Vehicle pick up. Have your student pick up sign in the front window, this helps speed things up.
  • Walkers should go to the playground and parents picking up walkers should go there also.

From your Student Services Team

Hope - Our Superpower! Two Rivers is a Kids at Hope school district. What does that really mean?

Kids at Hope, is a youth developmental strategy, based on significant academic research and evaluation. Kids at Hope begins with a foundational belief system that states and demonstrates, all children are capable of success, No Exceptions. We know that kids succeed when they are surrounded by adults who believe they can succeed. We commit to being a “10” on a 10 point scale, in our belief that ALL kids are capable of success. (period). No excuses, No Exceptions.

How do ‘WE’ - (the collective group of adults in every kid’s life) demonstrate we believe in them? Kids at Hope give us a Framework. First, “We Connect.” We know that children succeed when they have meaningful sustainable relationships with caring adults (this includes parents, teachers, family friends, coaches, etc.). Second, “We Time Travel.” We know children succeed when they can see and talk about their future. The future relates to education & career as well as, home & family; community & service, and hobbies & recreation.

Join us in an active practice of hope. As a family, discuss the following:

  1. What does hope mean to you?

  2. Who in your life makes you feel hopeful or who has given you hope when you most needed it?

  3. How do I give hope to others?

  4. Dream out loud together about what you hope you will accomplish this school year. It might be in terms of academics like reading a certain amount of books this year. Or it might be a new hobby - I want to learn how to play the guitar. Or it might be committing to weekly hours of service to our community.

  5. Write down. “I hope to accomplish……. I will do this by…. And I will get help from…. to make my hope become my reality. Tuck it away in a safe place and review it in two weeks to see how you and your family are making hope come alive.
