A Message from the Principal   Mascot Roadrunner

Dear Riverview Family,

It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you  to another exciting school year.  I hope that your summer has been filled with fun and relaxation.  How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to preparing for the start of school.  This is always one of my favorite times of the year!  I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await welcoming each and every student back to Riverview Elementary School. I could not be more thrilled to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who want to achieve great things! Our faculty, staff and I are looking forward to a new school year and are working hard to see that your child’s learning experience at Riverview Elementary School is a successful and happy one.

I am excited to announce that we have a number of changes in our school staff for this school year. Additions to our staff are as follows:

Ms. Sirianni – Special Education Teacher    Ms. Chang – EL Paraprofessional

Mrs. Chris Smith – 3rd Grade Teacher          Mrs. Veldhuizen – 3rd Grade Teacher

Mrs. Burnett – Kindergarten Teacher            Mrs. Hrdina  Building Paraprofessional

Mr. Heiting  Night Custodian                 

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

As always, I encourage you to consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. If you intend to visit your child’s classroom or accompany them on field trips during the 2019-2020 school year, I encourage you to visit the following web page and complete the appropriate documents:  

Doing so will ensure that all expectations are met, prior to your visit.

I am proud to be part of the Riverview Elementary family and thank you for your partnership as we work together to advance your child’s learning. Again, welcome to what will be another wonderful year of learning at Riverview School!
