General Education

Hello Riverdale Students and Families,

 I look forward to working with the Riverdale Community during the 2020-2021 school year.  As a school community we will continue to work on social and emotional learning (SEL). This enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges. There are five core competencies that we will be focusing on throughout the school year.  The core competencies can be found here.  We will be utilizing the Second Step program in each classroom. I am also available for meetings if your student is struggling with anything socially, or emotionally.  Please reach out to me with any questions, or concerns, you may have.

Request a Meeting 

 With Gratitude,

Christy Walp

Riverdale Elementary Social Emotional Learning Specialist
