News Blog Category - News Christmas will be brighter for a few local families thanks to the Riverview Elementary PTO and Riverview Elementary staff and students!

The PTO spearheaded a “Jar Wars” fund drive (when classrooms take part in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money) to help purchase gifts for some Riverview families in need. The fund drive brought in $1,000 in one week!

Riverview teachers helped wrap up the gifts this week, and they will deliver them next week to the three families were selected to receive these special gifts.

We are proud of our staff, students, and families for reaching out to others in need. We are grateful for our PTO, who makes so many great things possible. And we are proud to be a part of a community where caring for each other is just what we do!

News Blog Category - News This weekend, singers from Marion elementaries and McCulloch Junior High will be spreading holiday cheer at a special event, Winter Magic in the Gardens of Matter Park.

Saturday, Dec. 3, will be a day full of fun at the Gardens!

Families and groups are invited to come help decorate trees at the Gardens. (Click here to register for your tree.) From noon to 4 p.m., participants can help make decorations from noon to 4 p.m. at the Garden House, and/or bring some of their own decorations for their tree. Decorations should be environmentally friendly and bird-friendly (think popcorn, acorns, berries, pinecones … ).

>> Then, at 6 p.m., a tree lighting ceremony is planned, and singers from Marion Community Schools will be caroling at that time.

After the tree lighting, you can explore the gardens and enjoy the decorated trees, as well as hot chocolate and a bonfire in the meadow area.

The public is invited to this free event. Come out and explore the Gardens and enjoy a performance by some of our talented young singers!
