Riverside School Hours

Riverside Family Picnic

We are so excited to kick off our new school year and build our community with a Family Picnic on Thursday, September 21!!! Riverside Elementary will provide pizza and cookies. PTA will lead us in outdoor games and activities for everyone!

Many parents suggested that rather than wait until November to communicate what parents can do to help their children master the foundational skills they’ll need in order to excel academically this year, we should do so early in the school year. We will do this in conjunction with the Family Picnic. Each grade level will share their first foundational skill along with a fun activity your child will teach you. This will be done in short 20 minute sessions before the Family Picnic. To respect your time, we’ve come up with the following schedule:

If you have ONE student at Riverside: Please come at  6:05-6:25 for an activity with your student in their classroom.

If you have TWO students at Riverside:  Please come at 5:40-6:00 for an activity with one of your students in their classroom and at 6:05-6:25  for an activity with your other student in their classroom.

If you have Three or More students at Riverside:  Please come at 5:15-5:35 for an activity with one of your students in their classroom,  at 5:40-6:00 for the second classroom activity and at 6:05-6:25  for an activity with your third student in their classroom.

*If you have more than 3 students at Riverside, please talk with remaining students’ teachers and get an activity from them at the picnic.

The Family Picnic will take place from 6:30-7:30 outside on the East lawn.

For your information, we will be holding our regular Parent Teacher Conferences this year in November and March. These are the individual conferences you are used to. During these conferences, you will receive an update on how your student is progressing in the foundational skills and other areas.

Your student will take home his/her Data Notebook at least monthly. Please take the opportunity to go over the data in this notebook with your child. Our wonderful teachers are making them even more Parent-friendly and students are taking a more active role in understanding where they are compared to where they want to be academically, and what they can do to reach their goals.

We will have one APTT Night on January 18. You will be introduced to another foundational skill and more activities you can do with your child. More information will follow as we get closer to the date.
