Winter Newsletter 2019-2020
Dear Riverdale Families,
It’s hard to believe that we are already wrapping up the first semester of the school year! Our four 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!
The cold winter weather has finally hit our state! 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.

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, and the crosswalk person is at the curb.
- 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 Powers, Principal
