  • Let's Get Moving
    This year we are all using physical activity breaks during Morning Movement as well as within our own classrooms to provide students time to energize and refocus. The goal of Morning Movement is to activate students’ brain function to maximize learning whereas breaks during the day are quick activities to get students up and moving before or after sitting for longer periods of time. Research tells us that these types of movements help kids learn, pay attention and focus.  

    We want every child to participate in these movements as it will help us all with our learning. Please note that children will be outside for Morning Movement starting May 1st. We have noticed some students waiting in their cars instead of participating. Just so you know, those students will be marked tardy when they enter the building, so please have them join us instead. 

    Energizers are educational, too—they have simple but important nutritional messages or can be used to practice math and spelling skills. You can insert quick physical breaks in your day too! Practice math facts while doing jumping jacks, walk the dog and spell words with every step, or just simply climb the stairs when you need a boost of energy!

    Birthday Books


    Working together, the Riverside Staff is trying to promote healthy living by eating right and being active throughout our daily lives. We know that birthdays are a great time of year for celebrations and fun memories. However instead of feasting on sweets we, the Riverside Staff, are asking for your help in feasting on our love for books.


    Therefore rather than sending in a birthday sweet treat, we are asking that you send in a birthday book.  However if you would still like to send in a treat, please send in a fruit or vegetable to help us maintain our healthy school environment, like fruit kabobs or a vegetable tray.  So let's join together to make Birthday Books a way to celebrate!



    Learning to Love Reading

    Reading is a part of everyday life and will continue to be all throughout 2nd grade! However sometimes it can be challenging to find a book that is "just right" as well as interesting. So to help, try checking out the websites below with your child to search some fun, new, and exciting books!
