In order to raise more money for Outdoor Education opportunities for all students this year, and roll over money in grade level accounts for next year, the Middle School is hosting two events:

May 17: Middle School Student Lock In, $20/student

- Enjoy the Staff vs. Student basketball game, and then leave your middle schoolers at the school to enjoy games, movies, and more! In the morning, they will enjoy a pancake breakfast, and hopefully you can all enjoy the Color Run as a family in the morning!


May 18: Color Run, $15/participant


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!

MAY Habit of the Month: TEAMWORK

Each month, we focus on a particular Habit of a Scholar. For the month of May, teachers and all Riverview Crew members are on the lookout for students exhibiting Teamwork, and Crew lessons have an emphasis around working together to achieve a common goal. We appreciate your continued support in conversations surrounding teamwork at home.

Showing teamwork means working with others to achieve a common goal.

Students can show teamwork by:

  • Being inclusive of all members

  • Fulfilling role within group

  • Working through conflicts and disagreements to find solutions

  • Communicating and actively listening

  • Sharing leadership and group responsibilities
