News Blog Category - News Starting Sept. 10 and running until Oct. 5, all Riverview students will be participating in Charlie Cardinal's Reading Challenge, in partnership with Ball State University.

Students who complete the challenge will receive a keepsake bookmark and the opportunity to get free tickets to the BSU Homecoming Game set for Oct. 20 in Muncie.

To complete the challenge, students must read four books at their independent reading level. (For our Little Giants and Kindergarten students, parents can read books with their students and log the book titles.) Progress will be tracked in the classroom with the teacher, on a BSU football poster.
