What Happened This Month at Riverview Elementary School
What is Assertion?
- getting an adult when needed
- having the materials you need
- asking someone for help
- solving a problem
- doing what's right
When talking about assertion, we specifically focused on the word 'upstander'. An upstander is:
- someone who sees or understands when something is wrong and acts to make it right
- when an upstander sees or hears about someone being hurt, they speak up
- being an upstander is kind of like being a hero. We are standing up for what is right and doing our best to help support and protect someone who is being hurt.
Fifth Grade Career Fair
Farmington Area Public Schools hosted a Fifth Grade Career Fair on January 10th, 2020 at Farmington Elementary School. Fifth grade students attending Meadowview, North Trail, Akin Road, Riverview, and Farmington Elementary Schools participated in this event. We invited parents, guardians, relatives and family friends of Farmington Area Public School fifth graders to share their career experiences with some of our students - there were almost 70 presenters! Fifth graders were given time to visit tables and ask questions about their jobs (likes, dislikes, training required, etc.). This was a great opportunity for fifth graders to learn about the various career opportunities available right in our own community!
A special Thank You goes out to the parents, guardians, relatives and family friends of our Riverview Elementary School students who took time out of their busy day to volunteer!

We had a great group of volunteers from the Farmington High School National Honor Society as well as parents of our Riverview Fourth Grade Students. This event would not have been possible without their help. Thank you to all who volunteered!!
RVES Global Citizenship Fair is Scheduled for March 18th
Different is great! At RVES, we honor the uniqueness of each individual. To help our learners see, understand and appreciate the differences in our school community, we are hosting a Global Citizenship Fair on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 9:00am - 1:30pm in the Gym at RVES.
Learners in grades 1-5 will visit the Fair with their classmates. Kindergarteners will participate in a special global-themed storytime with Mrs. Maguire from the Farmington Library. All learners can also add to our “Where My Family Is From” bulletin board in early March.
We want your family to be part of the Global Citizenship Fair!
There are many ways to participate before the event:
- Send photos of your travels to different countries for our Going Places display
- Send an object from your culture with a short description for our Museum of Culture
- Send cultural clothing or fabric to be displayed in our Fashion Gallery
- Tell us a story from your heritage, to be shared in our Heritage Voices display
We are also looking for volunteers to set up a display and visit with learners during the fair. We will provide table space for anyone interested in bringing photos, food, games, or cultural objects. We are especially interested in hands-on learning activities such as games, crafts, calligraphy or short language lessons.
A letter will be coming home with you child soon! Contact us if you want more information or to let us know you are interested in participating. Click on the link below for access to the letter that your child will be bringing home.
