This week is Career Week!
This week is Career Week at River Valley Elementary. Classrooms will be focusing on looking to the future with students as they read and write about their future goals and dreams. Books will introduce a variety of career options to help students begin to understand we can use our unique personalities, interests, and gifts to make an impact in our world.
On Friday, speakers from around the community will come to share with classrooms all about their careers. Be sure to take some time this week to talk with your child about all the careers we’re exploring in class!
Please take a few minutes this week, prior to Friday, to remind your child(ren) of the importance of good behavior during the times we have special speakers in. Also, please know that your child may come to school dressed up as the professional they hope to grow up and become on Friday!!
KRN Family event is coming on May 30th!
On Thursday, May 30th, River Valley Elementary will host a KRN Family Event at Chikaming Elementary School from 6 – 7 PM.
We are very excited to share this event with families. It will include supper for the whole family, activities for kids, and information time for parents.
Students will receive their first 3 Kids Read Now (KRN) books! Last year was a LOT of fun and well attended.
The short parent in-service is a good information session, will give hints on how to make the program successful, and lets parents know the importance of avoiding the “summer slide” or how to help curb that for their child/children. This is open to all elementary students grades PK – 3rd grade.
Elementary Spelling Bee
The Elementary Spelling Bee will be held during the final week of May. This event is a great opportunity for students to showcase their spelling abilities as well as their study skills. The finals will be held on May 31st.
