Students in grades third through sixth are currently involved in state testing. The three day English Language Arts State Exams began yesterday and will conclude on Thursday, and the three day Math State Exams begin next Wednesday and concludes that Friday. Due to the expertise of our staff and incredible student initiative, children are well prepared for the exams.
I have a little sign on my office door that displays one word, Love. I believe that everything begins with love. We are so fortunate that the staff at Riverside demonstrates unconditional love every day for their students. A simple example of this was observed this morning. Teachers provided homemade chocolate chip pancakes, individually packed special snacks, and tasty drinks for the students to enjoy during the testing morning.
When students know their teacher cares, when they feel this, all things are possible.
