Riverdale Winter Newsletter

Dear Riverdale Families,

     It’s hard to believe, but we are already more than twelve weeks into the school year! Our three months with
your children have been filled with amazing learning – we are dedicated to ensuring that each scholar at Riverdale
Elementary improves as a thinker and a citizen every day. Our school mission statement says it all… We are
career-bound scholars going from good to better to best to achieve success!

     Thank you for joining us at Parent/Teacher Conference Day in October. It is exciting to discuss your child’s
growth and achievements with you, while setting high goals for learning, and we still have four weeks left in the
first semester. Should you ever have additional questions around your child’s school experience, please feel free
to call or email their teacher. We are always happy to speak with you about your child’s growth, and we value the
partnership we have built between home and school.

     The cold autumn weather has finally hit our state, and some mornings it can feel like winter! Please remind your
scholars to dress warmly and include gloves and hats when needed. We will continue to have outdoor recess when
temperatures are dry and above 20 degrees.

     Just a reminder, we have a few holidays in the next couple of months when school will not be in session. Please

     In our ongoing efforts to provide the safest and most secure environment for our scholars, we ask that drivers
remember the following points for morning and afternoon arrival and dismissal at Riverdale:

  • Always come to a complete stop at the stop signs.
  • Pause at crosswalks and observe if students are waiting to cross. Come to a complete stop and do not continue until all students have crossed the street.
  • Do not drop your student off in the street, use the Hug and Go lane for student drop off.

     Thank you so much for helping us keep our scholars safe at all times! As always, if you should have any questions
or concerns, please feel free to give us a call at 720-972-5580. We enjoy the opportunity to serve you and your
children at Riverdale Elementary!

Kristin Golden, Principal
Riverdale Elementary School
