January Newsletter

Happy 2018! We hope everyone had a wonderful break and a Happy New Year!

Thank you to all who came out to our 1st PTO social in December – it was a fun night! It’s so nice to get to know other school families outside of meetings and kids’ events, and we hope to do more get-togethers like this in the future!

The 3rd annual Riverside Giving Tree was a huge success…so much joy brought to our own Riverside (and this year also Ben Franklin) families. Over 30 families were represented on the giving trees this year – thank you to everyone who took tags and gave of themselves to make the holidays merrier for others!

The Variety show is coming up on January 25th, and even if your child is not performing this year, it is a fun event to watch!

Our next PTO meeting is Tuesday, January 9th at 6:30 at Ben Franklin, including free babysitting. Riverside will be voting to increase our teacher mini-grant budget at the meeting – these mini-grants provide teachers with supplies and other resources for their classrooms. Another wonderful way the PTO supports all things at Riverside!

Be sure to check out our updated PTO website. The link can be found on the new Riverside website, or you can access it directly at:

We are going to try and utilize this website to increase communication and post updates/forms/information that might be useful to our members. Our goal is to keep it current and add some fun pictures – if you notice it hasn’t been updated for a while, shoot us an email because we probably forgot!

We hope 2018 is off to a great start for everyone & that it’s your best year ever!!

Nicole Robbins & April Van Buren
