Hundreds attend Riverdale's popular learning celebration

Hundreds attend Riverdale's popular learning celebration

What a remarkable Writing in a Winter Wonderland night! At Riverdale's annual learning celebration, we ran out of hot cocoa with more than 200 scholars’ families attending. As always, wearing cozy pajamas was encouraged! Final projects from Adams 12’s writing, art, music and English Language Development units of study (and more) filled the hallway walls. Indeed, such a festive night of recognizing scholars' work and spending time together outside of school hours filled our hearts too.

There are two components of the final writing projects presented at Writing in a Winter Wonderland: a handwritten or typed piece and a video or audio recording of the scholar reading it. Every Riverdale scholar from preschool through fifth grade had a writing piece on display; if they're also in English Language Development class, they had two! Families also could explore several classes' art projects that Ms. Hinshaw organized and scan QR codes to see an array of musical and dance performances that Mr. Sargent recorded in music class. 

Thank you for your support at such a full time of the year, families! The fun spilled over to the next morning, when we got to randomly select dozens of the event attendees' names to choose a free book before winter break. 

Some 100 more photos from the event are on Riverdale's Facebook page, and this video captures sights and sounds from Writing in a Winter Wonderland too.
