The Riverwood Review

8th Edition - 2022-2023 School Year!

A Message from Principal Smith

Dear Riverwood Families,

This semester is absolutely flying by. It is hard to believe that there are only four weeks of instruction left before final exams. We will post 13.5 week progress reports to Infinite Campus on November 18 for you and your student to review. We’ve included the schedule for final exams and the second semester A/B calendar in this newsletter for your reference.

Please help us congratulate our students who were nominated for the Governors Honors Program (GHP). Each of these 30 students was recommended by a teacher to possibly pursue their passion as part of the GHP this summer. We expect to know tomorrow which students advance to the next round of the rigorous selection process.

Last Friday, 2022 Distinguished Alumni Program Inductee, Cary Rickoff (Class of 2005), visited Riverwood. Cary is a U.S. Navy Blue Angel and was in Atlanta for the Air Show. He met with our JROTC students, members of our Flying Club (and their very excited sponsor, Mr. Sohmer) and toured the building with his family. The students and staff are still talking about Cary’s visit.

Please look for the next Riverwood Review on December 1.

Have a safe and meaningful Thanksgiving!

Kindra Smith

Adult Volunteers Needed

As we start our 11th year, the Riverwood SAIL (Seniors Achieving In Life) Program is seeking both returning and new adult volunteers to assist Riverwood seniors with the often-challenging process of selecting, applying to, and financing two-year and four-year colleges as well as special career related training programs. Mentors are asked to work with SAIL students on a weekly basis in the upcoming months at mutually convenient times. Mentor responsibilities include helping seniors complete career assessments, required testing, admissions applications, and documentation (transcripts, test scores, recommendations), scholarship applications, and FAFSA. Please contact Roxie Garber ( to obtain additional information and to volunteer today.
