Mrs. Jones’ first grade class, along with several other classes celebrated Arbor Day with the city.  As a class, we created tree/season art work to present. We were able to plant five different trees at the Russell Swenson ballpark in Spanish Fork. We had so much fun celebrating and learning about the importance of taking care of our trees and surroundings. We loved Arbor Day!

Members of the Spanish Fork Jr. High chapter of National Junior Honor Society participated in a service learning field trip to the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah. Seven of our seventy members made the trip with blankets the students made. We delivered no-tie fleece blankets for chemotherapy graduates. The volunteer coordinator gave the group a quick tour of the facility. We are honored to help with this great service and look forward to making more blankets next year. If you would like to help sponsor this service, please contact the advisor, Mr. Jonathon Lawrence.

Our fourth graders have worked hard to prepare a program that teaches us all about Utah history.  With speaking parts and fun songs, we learned about how our State came to be.  They did an excellent job and we really enjoyed the program.  A special thanks to Miss McKendrick, Mrs. Fagergren and Mr. Rigby for all their time and effort!

Principal Moment

This week is Riverview Elementary Teacher Appreciation Week.   I truly appreciate our teachers!

Our teachers take slivers out of fingers and bad sports out of kick ball.  They know when a child has gum in his mouth even when he is not chewing.  They have sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times.

They hand over scissors with the handles up.  They can listen to one child talk about his birthday party and another talk about her sleepover and another talk about getting stitches last night-all at the same time.

They fix staplers that won’t staple and zippers that won’t zip.  They hand out papers and pencils and stickers and envelopes for newly pulled teeth.  They know the difference between Austria and Australia.

They plan lessons while showering, driving, eating, and sleeping.  They plan lessons five minutes before the bell rings.  They know what time it is when the big hand is on the twelve and the little hand is on the nine.  They say the r in library. They do not say the w in sword.

They put on Band-Aids and winter coats and puppet shows and Hoe Downs.  They know students will not understand the difference between your and you’re.

They correct pencil grips and spelling mistakes and bad manners.  They push in chairs all the way and push sleeves up while children are painting. They can touch the paper cutter.

They say, “Use two hands!” when kiddos carry their lunch trays.  They say, “Accidents happen,” after kiddos did not use two hands.

They know that colonel is a really hard word to read, and so is doubt and so is gauge.  They know that kids will read started, when it says stared.  They have spelled because and beautiful and friend six million times.

They know when a child does not understand.  They know when a child is telling the truth.  They know when a child has been up too late.  They know when a child needs help finding a friend. 

They are our teachers!  Thank you, Riverview Teachers!! 


I would like to personally thank Gary Terranova and the PTA for a FANTASTIC School Carnival!  I truly enjoyed the evening!  What a great event; the smells, the sounds, the sights, the fun!  I appreciate the hours and hours of hard work to help create such a great school community event! 

Summer School

Riverview will be offering a Summer School Program for math and reading.  Each session will run for 4 weeks. Classes will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, no classes on Mondays and Fridays.  The program will be offered at Riverview, during the following weeks:

  • Session #1………..June 5th – June 28th  (4 week session; Tues. Wed. Thur. only) 
  • Session #2………..July 10th – August 2nd  (4 week session; Tues. Wed. Thur. only)

These times are based on grade level for next year, 2018-2019.

  • 1st & 2nd grade from 9:00-10:00
  • 3rd & 4th grades from 10:15-11:15
  • 5th & 6th grades from 11:30-12:30

Time will be split as follows:

  • 30 minutes – Reading (small groups with students of similar needs)
  • 30 minutes – Math

A Summer School fee of $50 is required.  Students are able to register for more than one session, with an additional $40 fee/second session.  If you choose to register for one subject only, the fee is $25, with an additional $15 fee/second session.

To register your child, please do the following:

  1. Complete a registration form.  Registration forms will be available in the office.
  2. Make check payable to “Riverview Elementary” for $50.00
  3. Return registration to the school by Friday - May 18th, 2018

Music Video

This year we are trying to create a great memory…a Riverview music video!  The video will be to the song “The Great Show” from the movie “The Greatest Showman.”    A videographer will be coming on May 21st to help us create a great memory.  The most important ingredient for the memory is enthusiasm.  On Monday, May 21st, students can bring crazy wigs, sun glasses, a stuffed animal (circus),  a silly hat, etc. 


The yearbooks have been ordered and are currently being printed.  The PTA have ordered some extra books, BUT not a lot.  If you would still like a book, you may purchase one for $15 through the office.  The books will be delivered the last week of school.

Library Books

All books are expected to be returned to the library no later than Friday, May 11. 

To encourage students to bring their books in or pay for lost/damaged books on time, Mrs. Downey and Mrs. Marsigli are holding a little contest.  The first class in each grade to have all of their library books returned or lost/damaged fines paid (meaning main library and take home books) will receive donuts!  That's right, there will be 7 class winners, one from each grade.  

In addition to the donuts contest, they are going to be holding a weekly drawing for each grade for the rest of the school year.  This is how it works:

Each week in library if a student does not have any overdue books or returns their overdue books that class period, they will receive a ticket to fill out and place in the drawing basket for their grade. The overdue books include main library and take home library. On Monday mornings, Mrs. Downey will draw a winner from each grade to come down and select a book or reading buddy (stuffed animals that coordinates with a book). They'll be holding this contest each week for the rest of the school year.

Rodeo Reading Winners at Spanish Oaks

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Wed, 05/09/2018 - 1:56pm

(more pictures available)

We had some excited students yesterday as they were presented with a pair of rodeo tickets for this summer for being awesome readers during the past month.  Our winners were Lilly Mendez, Kallen Brough, Halle Oakey, Kayson Dimmick, Jessica Bishop, Paige Johnson and Kambree Lewis.  These students read a total of 2,791 minutes during April.  That is the same as 63 hours or 2.5 days.  Pretty impressive!  Our school wide reading minutes for April totaled 213,286 minutes!  That is even more impressive!  Kallen Brough and Jessica Bishop were then chosen out of those 7 to win cowboy boots, jeans and a cowboy hat.  

Our school reading goal was met and exceeded this year with a total of 1,800,000+ minutes.  That is amazing, and we get to celebrate this accomplishment on Monday with a school wide reading celebration!  We are all excited for that!

The fifth graders at East Meadows got to participate in a Freedom Walk sponsored by the American Legion. Students were given a shirt and a dog tag for the day. Students went to different stations to learn about respect for the flag, visit with an Air Force pilot, learn what it was like to be in the Navy, and much more. We are so thankful for the opportunity to learn from these veterans and we thank them for their service!

The annual Spring hike put on by the PE Department did not disappoint this year.  Students were able to travel to Provo and hike to the "Y"  it was an awesome experience.  Although the trail was very steep everyone was able to make it to the top!  Everyone enjoyed spectacular views of Utah Valley and were able to enjoy some time outdoors in the mountains.  What an awesome State we live in!
