Conferences Coming Up

We are looking forward to seeing families at conferences! Student/Parent/Teacher conferences are coming right up on Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th. Please make sure you bring your child to the conference, as their participation is an essential part of their learning. The third graders have made videos, in which they tell about their learning in each subject, and they are excited to share them with you! Please contact your child's teacher or the main office if you are unsure of your conference time or unable to make the time scheduled. 

We'll see you soon!

Math Night at Riverton

Thanks to those who attended Math night Wednesday evening. Here is some of
what we covered for those who weren’t able to be there.

Teachers and students shared how to do a Number Talk, demonstrating multiple
ways to solve the same math problem. Students in all grade levels work on this
method of problem solving in math. Ask your student to share how it is done.

Staff helped parents and children connect their personal electronic devices with
some online practice apps so that students can use them at home.
We looked at:
IXL (grades k-2)
EDM (grades k-5)
Reflex Math (grades 3-5)

Lastly we talked about ways to be safe online. We reminded students not to
share names, address or phone numbers online, and discussed ways for parents
to restrict access to certain content for their children. Here are some links we shared:

Students were able to ring the 'parade' bell!
Firemen demonstrate how far the ladder on the firetruck extends.  Students are surprised at just how high the ladder went!

Firemen explain their duties and equipment uses. 

Firemen explain the tools that are surprised that firefighters use saws!
