Riverwood 2020-2021 School Supply Lists

Welcome Families

Dear Riverwood Families, 

Welcome back to Riverwood! We missed spending the end of last year in person with your family! Our teachers are ready to embrace each child and immediately begin teaching academics, as well as social and emotional strategies. Riverwood has highly effective educators. And with your family dedication, we are committed to meeting your child where they are performing and helping them grow and to make a positive impact in our school community. Our mission at Riverwood will remain the same-to engage, encourage and empower every child, every day. Your child will be nurtured and challenged to reach the high expectations that are held for them. We know you’ll find that Riverwood is an extraordinary place for each child to learn and grow! We look forward to seeing you soon, and to loving and serving your family this year.


Some important information for the upcoming 2020-2021 School Year: 

*School supply lists for all grades  are available online at www.mustangps.org.

*Elementary Residency Verification will be completed in an online format this year.  Parents need to save their July or August utility bills and submit them between July 27th and July 31st.  The district will provide a link to all parents at the time of Residency Verification. This includes all students who turned in pre-enrollment forms in the spring.  No teacher will be assigned until residency has been verified. 

*Your child’s classroom teacher will call you to introduce herself/himself during the week of August 3rd-7th (Only if Residency Verification has been completed). 

*Pre-k and Kindergarten parent meeting (parents only) Monday August 12th  6:00pm-7:00pm 

*Open house/meet the teacher night is on August 11th from 5:00-6:30 pm.  In order to minimize parking problems, we request that all families whose last name begins with the letters A-H come from 5:00-5:30, letters I-P come from 5:30-6:00, and letters Q-Z come from 6:00-6:30. Parking will be available in the front, back and west parking lots. You may also use Central Middle School behind us as well!  Information on bus routes, before/after school care, and lunch accounts, PTSO memberships and school shirts will be available. You may also bring your child’s supplies to the classroom on open house night.

*The first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year is August 13th. School begins at 7:40 and is dismissed at 2:35.  Breakfast is served daily from 7:15-7:35. Students not eating breakfast will report directly to the gym.

*Riverwood student apparel (spirit wear) will be available for purchase during Open House at the PTSO table. You may also join PTSO for $5.00

*Take advantage of the many available resources on the district website.  Enroll in “My School Bucks” to monitor your child’s lunch account and deposit money;  track your child’s attendance and grades by signing up for “Parent Portal” (show photo ID at any Mustang school to receive your password to enroll); and check to see if you are available to receive financial support for your child’s breakfast and lunch costs by completing the online “Free and Reduced Lunch” application.


We are excited to have the opportunity to get to work with your family in achieving success for your student.

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

7 Mindsets

MINDSET OF THE MONTH-We are Connected
The We are Connected mindset teaches us that everyone who comes into our lives can help us to achieve and live our dreams. Working with, for, and through others is crucial to realizing our dreams. When you understand this and constantly seek the positives from relationships with others, your performance in every area of your life improves. In the lessons for this mindset, we help students explore synergies with others, embrace diversity, and relish the competition that will allow them to maximize their potential by working with and through others.
 
The 4 critical components of We are Connected: 1. Embrace Everyone – Every person that comes into our lives has the potential to help us, hurt us, or have no impact at all. It makes sense to gure out how someone may be able to help us because the other options mean we are not growing or getting closer to our dreams, and may even be taking steps away from them. People who live great lives embrace everyone and constantly seek ways to serve and connect with those they encounter.
 
2. Maximize Positive Relationships – Some people in our lives lift us up and make us better, while others can bring us down. We must work to spend more time with people that empower us and less with the ones who don’t. We should also seek to expand ways to get more out of and put more into the great relationships of our lives.
 
3. Build Your Dream Team – Building a Dream Team is about identifying the individuals who can help us live our dreams. Perhaps they have experience we can draw from, access to resources we will need, or can provide us with critical support as we start the path toward our dreams and face the challenges that will bring. The important step is to recognize the critical role others play our lives, and deliberately begin developing the relationships that will help us.
 
4. Lead with Value – When we nd people who can help us in life, we need to start building those relationships quickly so the cycle of giving can begin. A lesson many have learned is that if we seek ways to provide help before asking for help ourselves, we will get much more out of the relationship. We should always look for ways to lead with value to supercharge these relationships.
