Winter Activities Expectations

We encourage all Bulldog fans to attend activities this season.  Posted in our newsletter and at our event venues will be the expectations for students/fans as they attend games.  You will see the Bulldog POWER expectations from the Elementary and Intermediate Schools, and the Bulldog Pride pillars for the Jr./Sr. High School.  We ask all fans to abide by these when attending our activities.

School Improvement Advisory Council (SIAC)

The purpose of this committee is to include all stakeholders in helping the district plan for our future needs. The committee held the first meeting of the school year on Monday November 6, 2017.  The meeting packet and minutes can be found posted on our website.  If you have any questions or would like to be part of this committee please contact me at 712-484-2212 or tmitchell@riverside.k12.ia.us.


Building Progress-Sports Complex

The top dressing and laser grading has been completed.  The outfield sod has been installed on both fields.  The infield sod on the baseball field has also been completed.  The pitcher’s mound and home plate have been completed on the baseball field.  The softball infield, baseball infield, warning tracks on both fields will be completed early next spring prior to the start of the season.  We will be purchasing and storing the sound system equipment until early spring.  They will be back to do the install prior to the start of the season.  The Construction Trades classes are completing the platforms for the Scorer and Announcer for both fields.   The Bleachers, Batting Cage and Memorial Rock from the old field will be moved soon.


Building Progress-Safe Room Addition

They are in the final stages of completing the building.  Final inspections are completed and Anderson Construction is addressing the Punch List for the project.  We are on schedule for our December completion date.
