Week of Nov. 23-27

This week and next we will be on elearning for all students.  MySchool students will follow the SAME schedule as they have been with logging on with their teachers. Traditional students, please follow the schedule your teacher has sent home for these 7 days of instruction:  Nov 23, 24 (Thanksgiving break is Nov. 25-27) and Nov. 30-Dec 4.  

Dependable Dough

Last week we started giving out special behavior bucks called ‘Dependable Dough’ to students who were caught showing their Riverside PRIDE and being especially dependable.  Students put their names on the tickets and put them in a bucket here at school as a chance to win a prize.  We reinforced that we are DEPENDING on students to do their schoolwork during the upcoming elearning days.   For the next 7 days, we will continue to issue Dependable Dough to students who are completing their elearning assignments and joining the google meets with their teachers (for those without chromebooks, Dependable Dough will be issued for work completion.)  We have lots of great restaurant certificates to give away thanks to our PTO and a parent donation. Please help us reinforce dependability with your student by checking to see that assignments are completed each day.  Let’s finish the first semester Riverside STRONG! 

Elearning Tips and Tricks for Parents

We know learning at home can be challenging.   One of our mySchool teachers, Mrs. Ellnor, put this slide show presentation together in an attempt to help parents with this challenge.  ALL of us are doing the best we can with the situation the pandemic has caused.  It’s more important than ever for us to partner together.  THANK YOU so much parents for all you are doing to help support your child’s learning.  We hope you find this information useful:   https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vSeezcAYfTIcGNVKLgCpTp3BvyT68rnxvZsPY6n55WJf2Lz0zmiAtkK648Cp628oKgJuUtDM8Y3DYIB/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000
