WINTER PARTIES AND ACTIVITIES
The first semester of the 2021-22 school year will officially end on Thursday, December 16 – which will be a half day of school. Classes will dismiss for winter break at 12:10 p.m. December 16 is also the day for our winter classroom parties and activities. The tentative time for the celebration is 11:30 a.m. - 12:10 a.m. We are in the process of moving in the direction of having more parents join us for in-person events. For this event, we are requesting two (2) parents per classroom to assist with the teacher ahead of the party as well as during the designated helper time which will be from 11:30-12:10. If you have any interest in being one of the two classroom volunteers, please be on the lookout for communication from your child's teacher. If there are more than two parents per classroom interested in volunteering, then we will draw names.
Please remember, masks are still required indoors at the elementary level. Thank you for your support during first semester. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2022!

BoxTops for Riverview!
Turning in your BoxTops to benefit RE PTA is even easier this year! There are 3 ways you can contribute:
1. Download the app, register your name and choose Riverview Shawnee, KS as the school to send your earnings. After shopping, use the app to scan your receipt. The app will pick up any product that qualifies and automatically credit them to Riverview.
2. Doing online grocery orders with an emailed receipt? Just forward that email to email@example.com (Important: you must have previously registered through the app to tie your email to your selected school for this option).
3. Physical Box Top clippings can still be turned in as long as they aren’t expired. You can tape them to any sheet of paper or save them in a ziplock bag to send in to school with your child. If you have any questions, please reach out to Stacy Schmidtlein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With most BoxTop products being digital, the app is essential in taking advantage of all potential earnings. Thank you for your support!
Did you know your Amazon shopping can benefit Riverview Elementary? Just shop via Amazon Smile at smile.amazon.com/ch/48-1171703 and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases back to Riverview!
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. WIN-WIN for our school!
