RV Elementary Updates/Reminders
Salmon in the Classroom Mr. Zuccala made the trip to the Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery in Mattawan, MI to retrieve 300 Chinook Salmon eggs for the 3 aquariums in the district. The eggs have been placed in the tanks and we are now playing the waiting game until the eggs begin to hatch. The eggs are quite tough and can tolerate being bounced around a bit as they tumble around in the currents of their native rivers and streams.
Our “Bucket Fillers” Are Lassoed!!!At River Valley Elementary, we… Do our Best, Care for Others, and Love Our School
“Have You Filled A Bucket Today?” is a book we read in our classrooms several times throughout the school year… we have students filling buckets all day! When any of our staff catch kids doing the right thing they hand out a ‘ticket’ that is deposited into a classroom bucket. Each week 4 tickets are pulled from the classroom buckets to go into the Principal’s bucket. From these we draw 4 names per building as our weekly group of “lassoed kids” – just 4 of the students that fill our buckets with good attitudes and smiles!!
According to our attendance procedures, it is important that families contact the school when students will be absent along with the reason for the absence. Please remember to give your child’s school office a call in the morning if they will not be in school.

Family Sports Pass Ticket Option
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!
