IMPORTANT: End of Year Information
Dearest Riverwood Families,
 
As we approach the end of our first year together at Riverwood, I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank you for sharing your children with us. We could not have possibly accomplished a year full of great things without your partnership and support. Everyone who has had the honor of teaching and working with your child this year at Riverwood is thankful for your commitment to helping our students grow and succeed. It has been our pleasure to get to know your families and be a part of your child’s growth and success this year.

Bronco Bus
Along with summer comes the summer slide. Research tells us that the summer slide is preventable. Richard Allington and Anne McGill-Franzel found that a book giveaway program in which children received 12 to 15 self-selected books over three consecutive summers resulted in gains equal to a summer school program. 

The Bronco Bus is hitting the roads of our district!
The Bronco Bus is a school bus filled with books and other learning materials that will travel throughout the Mustang school district this summer giving students the opportunity to interact with books, STEM activities, and much more in order to help prevent the summer slide!


Thank you for helping prevent the summer slide for Mustang students!
 
Car Line Safety

Car Line Safety

One of our primary objectives at MPS and Riverwood is student, staff and family safety.  It takes cooperation and responsible actions by all of us including our bus drivers, students, parents and teachers to achieve this goal daily.  Multiple times a year our site safety committee meets to provide feedback to our administration team about possible safety concerns. During our most recent meeting multiple things were noted with our Car Rider drop off and pick up lane that pose potential safety hazard that we want to make you aware of so you can help us to improve.

 

Cell Phones- Please refrain from cell phone use during car rider drop off and pick up. Our morning and afternoon drop off lane is a busy place with lots of little people attempting to load  and unload safely. Just this week we had a car accidentally run up on the curb due to cell phone use. Thankfully the sidewalk was clear, but this could have been a tragedy if a child or staff person were present.

 

Blocking Drives- We want all of our drivers to be as courteous as possible. As you know traffic can at times be challenging. Please do not block drives to neighborhoods or accesses to our school building to avoid letting another driver in front of you. Blocking a drive or access of any kind is a traffic violation and could possibly keep emergency vehicles from accessing our site or neighboring housing additions.

 

Thank you in advance for your support and mindfulness to do your part to keep everyone safe.  

If you see something that our safety committee should consider please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs.Barnes

Assistant Principal, Riverwood
