PTO sponsoring MLK Jr. essay/poetry & coloring contests; due date is 1/11!

Posted on Jan. 09 2017 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News The Riverview PTO is sponsoring a Martin Luther King Jr. essay/poetry contest for grades one through four and a coloring contest for preschool and kindergarten.

Submissions to the contest need to be submitted to the PTO by the end of the school day Jan. 11 (2:30 p.m.).

Information sheets have been sent home with students regarding the rules for the contest, as well as the recommended writing topics.

Winners will be announced Jan. 13, with first, second, and third place winners being chosen from each grade level. 

We're looking forward to seeing the creative efforts of our students to commemorate this important day when we remember the life of a man who challenged us to continue the world-changing work he undertook — to make our communities a better place to live for all, regardless of the color of their skin, the size of their paycheck, the job they do, the language they speak. 

As the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said: "We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back."

New year - fresh start!

It’s a new year full of endless possibilities. When a new year begins, it is a common practice all around the world to make
resolutions. Their purpose is to provide motivation to make a fresh start.

Here are some quick tips that relate to some popular New Year's resolutions:

If your goal is to eat better, but are also watching your budget, you could start by taking inventory of what you already have, making a weekly meal plan, sticking to it when at the grocery store. Avoid last-minute meal plans when possible that require unplanned trips to the store.

Another popular resolution is exercising more. This can be something as simple as choosing to take a walk around the block or choosing the stairs instead of the elevator. It’s recommended to start small and work your way up to longer walks and more activity.

Whatever your resolution may be for 2017, the teachers and staff at Riverview Elementary wish the best in this new year for you and your family!
