Message from Mr. Pope

Dear Parents,


I hope you and your family have had a wonderful Fall Break! Parent-teacher conferences are right around the corner. If you have not already scheduled a conference with your child's teacher, please do so soon. As we head into the second half of the semester, please review the timely information below.


Please contact the school at 678-482-1000 if you have any questions.


Your principal,

Ben Pope

Daily Health Screening

Use the checklist below every morning with your child.

Riverside Needs YOU!

Volunteer Opportunity!

Riverside needs 2 or 3 parent volunteers to help with ice cream sales on Fridays during lunchtime. If you might be interested in this opportunity, please contact Nadine Salamoni at 678-482-1015 or at Nadine.Salamoni@gcpsk12.org.

Parents dropping off items for students

Please do not drop off items for students during the school day. This includes a water bottle, lunchbox, or homework assignment. Thank you for helping us protect instructional time at Riverside!

Say CHEESE!

Students will have their picture taken on Wednesday or Thursday this week. Please contact your teacher if you are unsure about which day your child's picture will be taken.
