See How They Grow!

These kindergarten scientists are learning first hand what it takes for one tiny bean to become a plant! Every day they observe and evaluate the changes from the day before and record their new observations and predictions in their journals. After reading Jack and the Beanstalk, growing beans took on a whole new meaning!

Butterfly Garden Update!

Riverside's PTA 5th grade committee partnered with the environmental committee and had a day of service to spruce up the butterfly garden. We now have an improved outdoor space to take students for outdoor learning. Our PTA volunteers added shade flaps, fresh coats of paint, new plants, and did a general clean up. We are so fortunate and thankful for our amazing PTA!
