Welcome To Riverside Elementary School
Dear Partners in Learning,4/29/16
May and June are exciting times at Riverside Elementary School. With spring break over, project-based learning is in full gear. We have plenty of end of the year field trips and fun events.
We are in the middle of the third trimester. If your child is in grades 3-5, have you checked Genesis for an academic update?
Our curriculum and instruction committees are meeting to discuss the new report cards that came out this year. After a year of using them, we are looking for feedback. Please let your teacher know if you have any suggestions for changes to the report cards.
RES has created a Remind 101 messaging account for parents. This will serve as a reminder for various school events and special activities. If you would like to receive a text reminder right to your cell phone you can sign up and join the group by texting @mrswawrzyn to (856) 942-4113.
Reminder, we are asking you to NOT bring any forgotten items to school for your child after school has begun for the day. With this rule, we are hoping to both encourage responsibility and support our security measures further.
