Welcome To Riverside Elementary School
Dear Partners in Learning, 3/1/17
Although the groundhog saw his shadow in the beginning of February... It looks like he may have been wrong. Spring is in the air! March is the only full month in the calendar year without a school day off. Our classrooms are in full learning momentum as we dig deep into our studies this month.
Any needed conferences occurred last month. The end of the second trimester is March 13 and Grades will be on the report cards for March 17.
If you have not already done so, be sure to sign up for a Genesis account. Report Cards were not sent home with the students at the end of the second marking period. By this time, parents should have logged onto Genesis to see their child's report cards. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you still need to set up an account.
Our PARCC testing schedule has been created for 3-5 grade.
3rd grade - April 3-11
4th grade - April 25-May 3
5th grade - May 4-12
