Weekly Update | Jan 13 - 19

Hello families!!

I hope you enjoyed your winter break! The snow has been fantastic, and it felt good to reset. Our first week back was wonderful - the school feels much better when it is filled with students.

The start of the new year also started out Quarter 3. Please help your student stay organized, check in on their infinite campus, read 30 minutes each night, and practice math for 25 minutes.

Remember to send your child to school with appropriate clothing (hats, jackets, gloves, etc.). Students remain outside over 15 degrees, and they need the proper clothing to stay warm. 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!

January Habit of the Month : Executive Skills

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

Exhibiting strong executive skills means being able to plan, organize, and manage behaviors and responsibilities.

Students can show Executive Skills by:

  • Managing goals

  • Organizing tasks and responsibilities

  • Managing time

  • Managing impulses

  • Self-monitor and reflect to improve

  • Maintaining focus

  • Following procedures and directions

Ask your student which team they are on for the Osprey Spirit Games!!!
