School of Choice 2018-2019
The River Valley School District has limited “School of Choice” openings for the 2018-2019 school year.
“School of Choice” applications will only be accepted from May 9, 2018, through June 8, 2018. For additional information or an application, please contact the appropriate school office:

Applications must be received by Friday, June 8, 2018, in order to be considered for one of the openings.
Standards-based grading measures your student’s mastery of the reported standards for a class, or how well your student understands the material in class.
The goal of this approach is to provide the teacher, student, and parent as accurate a picture as possible of the student’s learning and to encourage a dialogue about how the student can master the material for the class.
It’s time for our Annual Spelling Bee Contests!
Spelling lists came home today with each RV Elementary student in grades 1-5. Students should start studying now! We hope you’ll enjoy helping your child practice at home to learn these words.
Try tackling 10-20 a day and add on each day so the child may spell the previous day(s) plus the new ones! Be sure to offer lots of encouragement and praise! All practice for the spelling bee will be done at home.
Classroom contests will begin on Tuesday, May 29th with the grade level finals on Friday, June 1st. Classroom contests in 1st and 2nd grades are written. Grades 3rd – 5th will be oral contests. The Grade Level Spelling Bee Finals will be on Friday, June 1st. The finals for all grade levels are oral.
Mark your calendars, K – 3 Families!
We are thrilled that all families of K-3 students will be participating in Kids Read Now this summer. This program is designed to provide students with books of their choosing, on their level, to be mailed to them throughout the summer. All K-3 families completed their forms for this program and now it’s time to learn all the details! On May 31st at 6 PM, join us for our Chillin’ and Grillin’ Night.

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.
