Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe that it is already November and almost time for parent teacher conferences! Parent Teacher Conferences are a wonderful opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to learn how your child is progressing academically and socially in school. The dates for conferences are November 15 and 16. Students will have lunch and be dismissed at 11:20 both days. We hope to have 100% of our parents/guardians attend conferences this year. Please call Riverton at 874-8210 if you need to schedule or reschedule your child’s conference.
Community Resource Fair
On Thursday afternoon during conferences, Riverton will be holding a Community Resource Fair. At the Community Resource Fair, food, clothing, supplies, and other resource information will be provided for free to any family that visits. The Community Resource Fair will be in the cafeteria from 12:00 to 5:00.
The Book Fair will also be happening during conferences and will be located in the Media Center. Come and shop for some wonderful books for your child and/or your child’s class. Thank you to PTO volunteers for organizing the Book Fair. A portion of all sales from the Book Fair goes directly into supporting Riverton School!
One of the best ways to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot every year. Riverton will be holding a Flu Clinic on Wednesday, November 14th for those students whose parents have submitted permission forms. If you would like your child to have a flu shot, parents need to fill out the form completely and return it to the school. Please be assured that if you have not returned the form, your child will not be given a flu shot. Teachers will remind students to pass in the returned flu permission forms, but be aware that sometimes the forms do not get passed in. Please feel free to call and check to make sure your child's form has been turned in. Our goal is for every child to be protected against the flu this year!
Lost and Found
Just a friendly reminder to please check the Lost and Found for your child’s missing items. Lost and Found is located toward the back of the front lobby. Remember to sign in with the office if going to the Lost and Found area during school hours. Thank you!
Morning Arrival Time And Building Entry
Please know that even with the arrival of cold weather, children are not allowed to enter the building
until 8:05am, unless your child attends Rec. Thank you!
