Welcome To Riverside Elementary

Dear Partners in Learning,                                                                 

Riverside Elementary says goodbye to a busy October....amazing classroom lessons, field trips, Respect Week, an awesome Respect assembly, Pumpkin Night and next week's Fall Harvest and Halloween Festivities.

As we look forward to the month of November, remember that we will be having our Parent and Teacher Conferences on November 17, 20 and 21.  Our teachers are prepared to share with you specific information about your child's academic performance thus far and his/her adjustment to this year's classroom community.  Please know that both our classroom teachers and specialists are available to meet with you.  You will not receive your child's report card at the conference as we have moved to Trimesters. The first marking period ends on December 7 and report cards will be available on December 11. On November 17, 20, 21, and 22, our school will operate on an early closing schedule.  

In the spirit of learning more about our school and its program opportunities, I encourage parents to attend our November 16 School and Family Meeting in the Media Center at 6:30pm. On that evening we will honor our Star Students and begin planning our many holiday activities.

The School and Family Association is collecting coins.  This is a message from the S&F Association:
"Hello RES Families!

We are collecting PENNIES!  Which grade will have the most pennies??? You should be receiving a flyer home this week. Please collect pennies in a ziplock bag labeled with your student's room # or teacher name and bring them to school no later than November 8th!  The grade who collects the most pennies will win an extra recess period!  All money raised during  Mile of Pennies will go toward our technology fund and future events."
During November, there are two "short weeks."  This would be a great opportunity to begin to explore Study Island with your third, fourth or fifth grader or RAZ kids K-5! 

Later this month, our families will enjoy some family time together as school is recessed for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  As always, We wish that each of you will take the time to give thanks for the many blessings we have.  Enjoy your family and Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Riverside.
