Weekly Update | Dec 3 - 7

We hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving Break with your families, and that your first week back went smoothly. Your children exhibited such maturity during our Draw the Line program last week - thank you for continuing those conversations at home with your kids.

Can you believe there are just 3 weeks left in 2nd quarter?? Please check in with your child to look at their infinite campus and determine if they have any missing assignments.

As temperatures drop and snow starts to come in, please send your child to school with appropriate clothing (hats, jackets, gloves, etc.). If you need any assistance in acquiring warm clothing, please let us know!

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about anything going on at school or anything that we have coming up (see below)! 

As always, thank you for everything you do for your kids, for all of us in the middle school, and for Riverview.  Middle School can be a tricky time to maneuver, and we appreciate everyone working together as a team to support your kids.  

We appreciate all of you so much!

December Habit of the Month : Perseverance

Each month, we focus on a particular Habit of a Scholar.  Teachers and all Riverview Crew members are on the lookout for students exhibiting Perseverance, and Crew lessons have an emphasis around Perseverance. We appreciate your continued support in conversations surrounding Perseverance at home.

Showing perseverance means being able to persist through challenges.

Students can show perseverance by:

  • Completing work and fulfilling responsibilities

  • Overcoming obstacles, frustrations, and setbacks

  • Showing effort

  • Learning from mistakes and accepting feedback

  • Making multiple attempts to reach a goal
