Second grade students have been learning about colors.  They know that the primary colors are red, yellow, and blue.  They know that you can mix the primary colors and make secondary colors. The secondary colors are orange, green, and purple.  In class all students made a Primary Colors Quilt as well as mixing Play-Doh to make a secondary color wheel. Probably the most fun was learning how to play a Primary Color song and the "C" scale on Glockenspiels.  Come check out our 2nd grade hall to see their artwork.

There is a cute video of Mrs. Stapel's class singing about colors on our facebook page.

On Friday, September 28th, the Spanish Fork High School Hope Squad had the opportunity to attend Spanish Fork Junior High’s 8th grade Health classes to teach valuable lessons on how students’ words and actions can have a profound impact on others. Students were encouraged to offer a smile and a compliment to others, and were given a friendly reminder that you may never know what somebody is going through. They did fun, interactive activities with the students to help promote kindness and thoughtfulness.

Relay Race Helps Social Studies Students Show Their Understanding

SFJHS teachers know that engagement is key to understanding.  Mrs. Shea Harmer wanted her students to understand how important the agricultural products of the New World were to the European continent during the age of exploration and be able to recognize those items.  After students studied the foods, they were able to show their knowledge in a very unique way. 

“So this was a relay race we did for the Columbian exchange,” reported Mrs. Harmer. “The teams had a stack of cards with pictures of different foods on them. They had to decide whether the food was from the old world (Europe) or the new world (America) and then drop their card in the correct bin. Whichever team had the most correct won and the fastest team got 3 extra points. It was just a fun way to see if students were understanding the material and get them moving too.”

 Thanks for sharing what you’re doing in your class Mrs. Harmer.

Riverview Elementary Weekly Newsletter

Riverview Elementary News - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 7:18pm

Principal Moment


Why will kids ask ten times when recess is but then want to stay in for the whole break to organize markers?

Why do kids forget where to indent in a letter but remember the name of my guinea pig I had when I was in the third grade, and why my dad washed my mouth out with soap when I was eight?

Why do kids write “THE END” so big?

Why do kids know precisely how many days, hours, and minutes are left till their birthdays but still ask, “When’s lunch?”

Why do kids complain when they have to run in PE , but can run around the neighborhood for three straight hours while wearing a refrigerator box on Halloween night?

Why is it that kids can’t see that there are no periods or capitals in their four-page story but notice that I have something green in my teeth?

Why do kids just stare at me and say nothing when they run into me in the grocery store?

Why is it that no other job will bring as much enjoyment, frustration, excitement, sadness, contentment, worry, delight, sleepless nights, and joy as being a teacher? 

I love being a teacher!

Chalk-Walk FUNdraiser-Friday, October 5th

Friday is our FUNdraiser.  We will have a ‘Chalk-Walk’ again.  

FAQ’S of a Chalk Walk

  1. What is a Chalk Walk? During each lap, the walkers will be celebrated with a splash of color (colored cornstarch which is 100% non-toxic and completely biodegradable).  The colors will be released from squeeze bottles managed by teachers and parent volunteers.
  2. How does this help Riverview Elementary? The Color Walk will raise money through sponsored pledges and laps walked.  In other words, the students are actively earning money for our school!  Last year’s funds were used to help purchase an additional twelve Smartboards.  We now have a Smartboard in each classroom!  Thank you!
  3. Where will this take place and what will it look like? The track will be set upon the grass behind Riverview Elementary.  All grades will walk concurrently.  There will be music on site.  Additionally, water will be provided during the walk.
  4. How can I help? In addition to assisting your student(s) with pledges, you can sign up to volunteer or come and walk.  Cheer on the kids on the day of the walk or participate with us on Friday, October 5th from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  5. What if I’m concerned about the powder getting into the eyes, nose and throat of my child? Participants are welcome to bring bandanas or even dust masks.  We will guide our volunteers to aim below the neck.  Keep in mind that this is a kid-friendly event; the volume of color will be appropriate for fun, not overwhelming or scary.  If a student does not want to participate in the color element of the walk, that child is invited to walk on the inside of the track. 
  6. How permanent is the color, and how should I prepare? Participants should wear OLD white t-shirts, socks, shorts and shoes.  The color should mostly wash out of any item worn.  Of course, if your child wants to keep the colored t-shirt as a souvenir of the event, spray the colors with vinegar and iron it prior to washing.  Participants should also bring a towel or large garbage bag to protect the inside of a car or bus.
  7. Back up date? In the case of inclement weather, we will hold the Chalk-Walk on Tuesday, October 16th.

Funds raised at this event will go towards:

  • Mobile Chromebook carts: Currently each student in grades 4th – 6th has daily access to a Chromebook.  This year we would like to purchase labs for each 3rd and 2nd grade classroom.  Each lab is approximately $9,500; which includes 36 Chromebooks + 36 slot charging cart.
  • What will students and teachers do if everyone has a device? With the help of 1:1, teachers are more able to differentiate instruction; using both face to face and online instruction.

The walkathon represents all that is really great about Riverview.  Because all are participating, our students can be proud to contribute directly and individually to the school.  On this one day in October, we will come together to support and celebrate our kids. 

Families can come “set up camp” on the grass field and on locations along the course.  Plan to bring folding chairs or a blanket or old clothes and your walking shoes, depending on if you want to walk with us or watch.  No bicycles or pets.

Riverview Elementary PTA presents the “Reflections” contest.  Express yourself through art; Literature, Visual Arts, Dance, 3-D Art, and Photography.   The 2018-20189 Theme:  “Heroes Around Us.”  Have students pick up an entry form from their teacher or at the office.  Deadline: Monday, October 21st.
