MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear River Families,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at River Middle School. This is my second year as a parent and board member for River and I still feel like I’m drinking from a firehose! I feel fortunate to be a part of a community that supports an implicit and explicit curriculum that directly enriches, challenges and stimulates our children’s education.
This year provides a unique opportunity to me, in concert with the rest of the board, to cultivate the River Family Foundation as a new pillar to our school. Additionally, we are so fortunate to be the recipients of a new campus, ready to occupy January 2020. We will continue to build upon River’s great history and shape the future of our school.
The River Family Foundation was created with the mission of engaging parents through fundraising and volunteerism. This serves to enrich the academic, social and emotional growth experience of each student during their time at River. Building a strong partnership with and among families is essential to serve our children in this mission. We encourage you to get involved. Join us in executing our mission to maintain and grow River Middle Schools unique programs. Together we can make these formative years for our children successful and memorable.
Monthly River Family Foundation meetings take place on the 3rd Tuesday of every month in River’s library. These meetings are open to all and I hope to see you there!
