A Message from the Principal   Mascot Roadrunner

August 18, 2015

Dear Riverview Family:

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2015-2016 school year at Riverview Elementary School.  The entire staff and I are looking forward to another year of working with our students and parents.  The 2014-2015 school year proved to be a great success by many measures and it is our goal once again to provide effective educational experiences for all students.

I want to personally encourage parents/guardians to become involved in their student’s education.  It is the conversation and cooperation between school and home that ultimately enables a child to reach his/her potential.  We would also like to ask that you become involved in our school through volunteerism, whether it is serving as a room parent, library volunteer, or a member of the P.T.O.

Whether you are a new Riverview family or a returning family, the year ahead will be a rewarding experience for your child. A commitment toward working with, understanding, and nurturing each and every child are some of the many reasons why Riverview Elementary is such a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.

I am excited to announce that you will be seeing a couple of new faces around Riverview this school year, as well as some changes in teaching assignments. Mrs. Szekeress will be moving to 4K, Ms. Burmeister will be moving to 4th grade, while Mrs. Villiard is moving to 3rd grade. Additions to our staff are as follows:


   Ms. Van Sleet – Special Education     Ms. Zempel – Kindergarten

   Ms. Straub – AmeriCorps                    Mrs. Dallman-Zajackowski – Building Para

Please help me in welcoming these new faces to the Riverview family.

Sincerely,

Andrew J. Place

Principal
