Virtual Book Fair
The River Valley Elementary PTO will be sponsoring a virtual book fair for elementary students beginning on Monday, March 22nd. The virtual book fair will be open for 2 weeks for purchases and will end on Sunday, April 4th. The virtual book fair will take place in lieu of the traditional book fair typically held during parent/teacher conferences. Please view the flyer for the event which contains the link at the bottom for families to purchase books. From books purchased from the book fair, 25% of the proceeds are put towards the purchase of new books for the elementary schools’ libraries.
One Book Two Schools
Chikaming and Three Oaks Elementary students will once again be participating in the “One Book Two Schools” reading activity for the month of March as “March is Reading Month!” All elementary students will be receiving a copy of “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate which was (and has been for the last 2 years) purchased for every elementary student by the Rotary Club of Harbor Country (THANK YOU!!!).
Every day of March, a video of an RV staff member reading a section of the book will be posted to the RVSD Facebook & Instagram pages.
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!
