This year the foundation donated over $10,500 in the form of 20 grants for classroom equipment and materials. To date, they have supported our students with over $42,000!
From our students and staff, thank you for all you do for our school and community!
The annual RCEF Golf Tournament will be held on August 6th, please join us!

Riverdale?s Summer Reading Challenge Begins
Riverdale’s Summer Reading Challenge Begins
Did you know that when kids read over the summer they are likely to leap ahead when they head back to school? It’s called the “Summer Leap,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long. Riverdale students in 4K-5th grade are signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes all summer. The goal is for the students in our school to read the most minutes possible in an effort to win “Best in State” recognition and a mention in the Scholastic Book of World Records.
The theme of this year’s program is Be a Reading Superhero. On May 9th, the staff held an assembly and prepared a skit to introduce the program to students. A fun time was had by all! Students will now start logging their reading minutes throughout the 18 weeks of summer, and they will unlock stories from some of their favorite authors. Plus, throughout the summer, kids will earn digital rewards and learn about great new books to read. Students will also find daily tips, book lists, and a new “Ask the Experts” book recommendation feature for parents on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge website. A link to this site is under the Family tab on the district website. Students will be bringing home more information about the program.
The fun begins on May 9, 2016, and ends on September 9, 2016! Let’s see how many minutes Riverdale students can read this summer!
This year 8th grade promotion will be held on Thursday, June 2nd. A continental breakfast for 8th grade students and their parents will begin at 10:00 am in the REMS commons. Following breakfast, the promotion ceremony is slated to begin around 10:45 am in the gymnasium.
