Hi, I’m Mr. D! Welcome to the Riv!
Riverview Elementary is a K-6 elementary school in the city of Saratoga Springs, Utah. Since 2011, Riverview has been the home of the best Otters on earth! We are dedicated to creating an environment that challenges, supports and enriches every student’s learning and life experiences. We consider everyones role in accomplishing this goal and have put together a mission statement for each of these crucial stakeholders.
- Students: I will be challenged to learn and people at my school will support me along the way. I will do hard things and even if I fail, I will try again. I am here to make a difference!
- Parents: At Riverview Elementary they challenge, support and enrich our student’s learning and life experiences by breaking down barriers to learning and participation and we support that effort at home.
- Teachers: We agree to a set of principles: We will reflect, review and act! We acknowledge that there is a need for our pupils to be both challenged and supported if we are to enrich and enhance every child’s learning and life experiences, by breaking down barriers to learning and participation.
- Administration: Administration at Riverview Elementary will establish principles and a vision for the school with teachers and the community. It will lead to reflection, review and action! We acknowledge the need to both challenge teachers and support them in order to enrich and enhance every child’s learning and life experiences by breaking down barriers to learning and participation.
Our school participates in many wonderful programs. We are a proud member of the Utah State Dual Immersion Program in Mandarin Chinese. This program, which starts in 1st grade, gives students a 50/50 immersion model in a target language throughout there elementary years and into secondary as well. These students experience both a language and cultural experience in their own classrooms.
We also have two special needs units at our school. These units specialize in helping students with emotional needs reach their full potential with a goal of returning to their boundary school as soon as possible.
Our PTA is an amazing provider of experiences for students. They host many events throughout the year including; Otterfest, Books and Breakfast, the school musical, Knowledge Bowl, Chinese New Year and many more. They also volunteer countless hours in classrooms!
At Riverview we see the potential in every student and strive to “Educate Each Otter!”
