A Message from the Principal   Mascot Roadrunner

August 12, 2017


Dear Riverview Family,

On behalf of the staff here at Riverview Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

            1) Attends school daily and arrives no later than 8:35 am, ready for the day’s learning experience

            2) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

            3) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

            4) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

            5) Knows that you expect him/her to do their very best.

 Please 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 2017-2018 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 excited to announce that you will be seeing a number of new faces around Riverview this school year. Additions to our staff are as follows:

Mrs. Rodziewicz – Library Media Specialist      Mrs. David – ELL Teacher                  

Mrs. Differt – 1st Grade Teacher                          Mr. Her – Bilingual Paraprofessional

Mrs. Rosso– Head Cook                                       Mrs. Bauman – 1st Grade Teacher     

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

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!
