After-school World Drumming
World Music Drumming, open to 3-5th grade on Thursdays from 3:30- 4:20 P.M for six sessions Nov. 2 – Dec. 14 except Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving). We will meet at Three Oaks Art and Education Center, 14 Maple Street, Three Oaks, MI with Donna M. Mitchell as the Instructor. Miss Coleman will walk students to Three Oaks Art and Education Center after school. Class will begin at 3:30 and end at 4:20 P.M. Parents pick up students at AE.
World Music Drumming is an opportunity for students to have hands-on experience with hand drums, shakers, bells and native songs of several different world cultures. The 50 Minute class will include snack, focusing and drumming techniques which will enable students to play in ensembles very shortly after beginning drumming. Also included will be opportunities for small group improvisations and compositions. Songs to accompany the drumming will also be learned. This is a very active class for students of all abilities.
No prerequisites required. All instruments will be provided.

River Valley Athletics
Season Sport Passes
If you are planning on coming to many sporting events at River Valley it might be a good idea to consider our family pass ticket option. This pass allows admission for everyone in the immediate family to enter all RV athletic events by simply showing the pass or telling the ticket taker the number for your pass.
Each family pass costs $150 and is good for all home sports in all seasons! It is a great bargain for your family and a one-time cost for the whole year!
Tickets for all games (home and away) can be purchased from your school office for $3.00 each.
