Welcome To Riverview!

Greetings, Riverview Elementary Otters!

It is with great joy and anticipation that I welcome each and every one of you back to another incredible school year at Riverview Elementary. The halls are buzzing with excitement as we prepare to embark on a journey of learning, growth, and community building. Whether you’re a returning student or joining us for the first time, I extend a warm Otter welcome to you all.

Our theme for this year encapsulates a powerful message: “In a world where you can be anything; Be Kind.” These words hold immense significance, not just as a theme, but as a guiding principle for our interactions, our learning, and our lives. Kindness is a beacon that can illuminate even the darkest of times, and as Otters, we will strive to create a world within our school where kindness thrives.

To our returning students, welcome back! Your smiles, friendships, and enthusiasm bring life to our school, and your continued dedication to your studies is inspiring. Let us embrace this year as an opportunity to deepen our understanding, explore new horizons, and create lasting memories together.

To our new students, I extend a heartfelt greeting. You are now part of a spirited community that celebrates individuality and embraces diversity. Here at Riverview Elementary, your unique talents and perspectives will enrich our collective tapestry, and we can’t wait to see the remarkable contributions you will make.

To our exceptional team of educators and staff, thank you for your unwavering dedication. Your passion for teaching, your commitment to our students, and your innovative approaches to learning set the stage for success. Together, we will empower our students to discover their passions, develop critical skills, and become compassionate citizens of the world.

Parents and guardians, your partnership is invaluable to us. We recognize the role you play in your child’s education and growth, and we invite you to join us on this journey. Your support, involvement, and open communication help us create an environment where every Otter can thrive.

As we embrace this year’s theme, let us remind ourselves daily of the incredible impact kindness can have. Through our actions, big and small, we can create a ripple effect that reaches far beyond our school walls. Kindness fosters understanding, empathy, and unity, and it transforms our school into a place of compassion and respect.

I am excited to witness the moments of learning, laughter, and friendship that lie ahead. This school year is a blank canvas awaiting the strokes of brilliance from each of you. Together, as a united community, we will make it a masterpiece.

Here’s to a year filled with kindness, growth, and endless possibilities.

Swimming forward together,

William Shumaker

Principal, Riverview Elementary
