Thank you Riverview School District

Thank you to the Riverview School District for inviting us to

the two-day planning session, May 5 and 6. We would like to thank you for

taking the initiative to pull together the community members, teachers,

staff, parents and administrators of our district for the April 1 forum and

this planning session.

There were 28 of us at the planning session who worked together

for two days and drafted a vision and mission statement for the school

district. It will be reviewed by the superintendent then presented to the

school board.

The one thing that amazed us was how much we all agreed on the

way we saw our schools. We saw our schools, as a school where

children, teachers and adults, being parents, friends, family members and

community members, working together and meeting all their educational needs,

in a bright, cheerful and safe environment.

We are not finished, however. We were to set goals at this planning

session and ran out of time. We are coming back together on May 31 to

accomplish that task. We hope our collaborated efforts make a difference

to our school district and to our community, and most of all, to our kids.

Thank you for caring about us and including us in your journey.
