Boy have I missed you!  Although I have not had a chance to post this month that doesn't mean I didn't have great material to share. 

Mr. Slater recently put together a fantastic day for our school community.  

It can be summarized in two words...

Otsego County's Office of Emergency Services received funding to create a regional campaign to promote awareness of handicapped parking spaces. The project, which will include radio ads, billboards, and print brochures on NYS Thruway rest areas, is being administered through the Catskill Center for Independence (CCFI).

As a result, due to a strong ongoing partnership with the CCFI, Riverside was selected to lead the way.  We held two contests for students in grades 3-6. The first contest was to develop a slogan; the second contest was to create artwork to support the slogan.

Shapri Krone was our slogan winner – If it is blue – is it for you?
Eve Rokhvadze was our artwork winner.

The CCFI honored Shapri and Eve during an assembly by presenting them with a certificate and fifty dollars.  They thanked all the students in grades 3 through 6 for their participation by hosting an ice cream social.

The slogan and artwork will be seen on billboards all across New York State.  The slogan and artwork will also be on t-shirts, notepads, and coffee mugs. 

We are making a difference!

Lost in a Great Book

There is nothing nicer then seeing students 
immersed in literature that the students are passionate about.

During DEAR Time, Cameron found a quiet spot to read the book he selected called, Football Hero.
