Your Voice Counts!
Riverside was recently recognized as a Double Platinum Award School by the Georgia Department of Education. We are one of just four schools in the state to earn this distinction. Way to go Riverside students, teachers, and community!
Your input is an important factor in this recognition. Please take a few minutes to complete this year's Georgia School Climate Survey. It will be available through March 1, 2020.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support!

In The Spotlight...
This week we celebrate Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was born in Maryland. His mother was a slave and when Frederick was born, he became a slave, too. He secretly taught himself to read and write and then escaped from slavery. He spoke out for the freedom of slaves. Frederick Douglass believed in equal rights for all people.
Launch Pad Liftoff!
The school store will be open one time per month until the end of the school year.
Fourth grade students will be receiving information about a special after-school opportunity that will be open to their grade only, but we want the entire school community to participate at home at their own convenience.
This is an easy, fun way to contribute to a very meaningful cause. There is no sewing involved and the only expense is the purchase price of the fleece, which can be found at Hobby Lobby, Walmart, or Joann Fabrics. For more details and complete instructions, please visit www.riversidepta.net or email Heather Sinyard at email@example.com.
Completed blankets may be dropped off in the school lobby anytime between now and Friday, February 28th. Thank you for your help with this worthy service project!
Drumming Up Stories
Dave Holland led kindergarteners in song through an interactive performance on Tuesday. He educated the students on various instruments from all over the world. He also encouraged them to think creatively and to use problem solving skills. Thank you PTA Academic Programs for this fun experience!
