News Blog Category - News Welcome to 2017!

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!
