Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week May 6-10, 2019  “One School-One team-Making a Difference”

Join me as we all celebrate the hard work and important contributions our teachers and staff make during National Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week May 6-10, 2019 with National Teacher Day being Tuesday May 7.  This is a week to reach out and thank those who work so hard to provide educational services to the Riverside community. Our teachers and staff deliver inspiration, knowledge and motivation to our students on a daily basis.  During this week take the time to send a note or offer a work of recognition to a special teacher or staff member.  Thank them for all they do to help our students achieve great things each and every day.
