Spring 2018 Newsletter

Dear Riverdale Families,

Happy Spring! It is hard to believe that the weather is warming up, and we only have about seven weeks left with your scholars this school year.  While it may seem that summer is near, there is still plenty of learning going on at Riverdale!  Please see the important date and announcements outlined below.

CMAS Testing (Colorado Measures of Student Success): We have begun testing in the areas of English Language Arts and Math for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students, and our 5th graders will test in the area of Science this month.  Please help your student get plenty of rest and a good breakfast so their brains are ready to demonstrate all they know! 

Bond Program News: Thanks to the Adams 12 Five Star School 2016 Bond Program and to the support of our community, this summer Riverdale will see some exciting changes including renovation work, updates to our building infrastructure, mechanical systems, as well as security enhancements.  We are excited about these improvements and the positive impact they will have on our school and community!

Planning for the 2018-2019 School Year:  Several parents have asked questions about the teacher placement for their child for the upcoming year.  While we do not accept teacher requests, we welcome and value parental input regarding the classroom setting needs of your child.  If you would like to share your feedback with us please submit a letter to me by Friday, April 13, 2018. 

Upcoming Dates: 
• April 10: PTO @ 6:00 pm
• April 20: PTO Spring Carnival @ 6:00-8:00
• May 4: Assessment Day by appointment
