Navigating the River
Week of September 30, 2019
We want to hear from you!
The new version of Navigating the River is great! It is very informative and keeps us in the loop. Thank you for putting all the info in one place and making it easier to know what is happening at RMS.
Our daughter is new to Riverwatch. We are absolutely blown away by the 8th grade teachers. They are amazing teachers who are also warm, caring, and nurturing. They completely understand the need for students to have time to themselves, family bonding, extracurricular activities, and just time to unwind. We love that the homework is only given when it is purposeful and necessary. Thank you for understanding middle schoolers and loving and teaching them so well. Our daughter is learning so much and under far less stress this year. We appreciate you all so much.
Questions and Ideas
Idea: Please offer education on not littering and polluting the environment around the school, our neighborhoods, and the county. Make sure to explain that it is unacceptable, and not “cool” to toss fast food garbage out of the car windows. Raising the next generation with this awareness is critical to public health. It would also be good to organize some cleanup projects in the neighborhoods roads around the school - always with due precautions (the help of the sheriff, blocked roads, high visibility vests, etc). It is important for our kids to appreciate the work on those who keep our roads clean and take pride in the cleanliness of our state.
We are always happy to partner with our community and parents to teach personal responsibility! At the beginning of every school year, teachers set expectations for students around the PRIDE (Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Empathy) characteristics that are central to our school culture. Students and teachers discuss what each of these looks like in the classroom, the cafeteria, the hallways, and outside the walls of Riverwatch. As a community working together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students!
