Riverview prides itself on working hard academically, creating a positive school environment and engaging in community service. During the fall and winter, all kids at Riverview go through a battery of assessments to gather baseline data for school improvement and student academic growth. All staff members frequently attend professional development to help drive the academic success of Riverview. Technology has come to the forefront in education so Riverview instructional staff is utilizing an array of tech devices within the classroom for instruction. We are fortunate to have a Smartboard, Netbooks, Chromebooks, Document Camera’s and iPads in the classroom for an enhanced learning experience. Students in all grades work with each other as mentors, reading and bus buddies, as well as, academic tutors.
Our learning environment is also enhanced through a partnership with Ferris State University, which includes 40 and 80 hour education students, FSU Student Teachers, FSU “Reading Literacy” work study students, volunteers from FSU Athletic Department, FSU Social Work students, social organization volunteers and research students. Many community members volunteer their time at Riverview to work with our students academically and build relationships. Riverview prides itself in the Community/School relationship.
Riverview Elementary has an extremely positive school environment which allows students to participate in many positive learning environment activities including spirit week, concerts, plays, book fairs, Title Nights, online programs, parades, field trips, Life S.P.A.N, health and fitness, and parent teacher conferences.
Throughout the school year, Riverview students participate in a few community service projects, such as, Hats Off for Cancer, holiday door tag hanging, card-making for our troops, and continually building relationships and partnering with community organizations.
Riverview is excited to announce the school was recognized by the State of Michigan Department of Education as a Reward School for closing the gap in student achievement.
The staff at Riverview radiates high energy and embraces positivity, teamwork and the love of learning. They continue to “Rock” the students learning and work hard at making our students experience at school the best it can be!
