About Riverdale

Mission & School Chant

Our staff and scholars recite the Mission and School Chant daily during morning announcements. This sets such a positive tone for the day! 

At Riverdale Elementary we are career-bound scholars going from good to better to best to achieve success.

School Chant:
Good, better, best
Never let it rest,
Till your good is better 
And your better is best.
