Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week May 7-11, 2018  “Celebrate Teachers”

Join me as we all celebrate the hard work and important contributions our teachers and staff make during National Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week May 7-11, 201* with National Teacher Day being May 8.  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.

Transition  2018-2019

The Board approved the 6th Grade Transition to the JHSH Building for the 2018-2019 school year.  They also approved delaying the 3rd Grade Transition to the Intermediate School until the 2019-2020 school year.  We will use the additional year to work with parents and staff to identify and address concerns and issues before we move ahead.


Five Year Capital Project List

We are finalizing the Project List for our Five Year Capital Improvement Plan and will be setting a Board Work Session in June to discuss and prioritize the projects.  We will also be discussing how the fund the JHSH Project completion and future projects.


Legislative Update

Legislators have almost completed their work for the 2018 legislative session.  Much of that work is taking place behind closed doors as Senate and House leaders and the governor try to reach agreement on a tax bill. Work on the rest of the budget is on hold until that occurs – as is work on the remaining substantive policy issues such as the state penny for school infrastructure (SAVE) and operational sharing incentives. Both of those bills are in the Senate, awaiting consideration on the floor.  Riverside Community School District supports the passage of both of these bills and will continue to work with the Senate to hopefully move the bills forward.


Riverside Community School District Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Riverside Community School District Hall of Fame is to honor graduates, employees, teams, individuals and friends of the Riverside Community School District for their accomplishments at and/or to the service of the Riverside Community School District, and also to inspire our students to become the best that they can be.  We hope to make our first selections and have our first induction ceremony in conjunction with the 25th Year of Riverside Celebration.

The Riverside Community School District Hall of Fame exisits:

  • To honor students/teams who have accomplished extraordinary feats in extracurricular activities.
  • To honor those who have made great contributions to Riverside Community School District over a period of many years.
  • To honor those Riverside Community School District graduates who have distinguished themselves in life after high school

It is not just for Riverside Community School District but any accomplishments during the days of Macedonia, Carson and Oakland should be considered for the Riverside Community School District Hall of Fame.

To nominate someone please fill out the application that can be found at www.riversideschools.org
