January 25-29, 2021

 

Last week, Riverside celebrated Wellness Week, a time to focus on mental and emotional health. Students participated in “Mindful Minute” breaks, breathing exercises, and themed activities that focused on stress relief, gratitude, and more. They also participated in a 10-minute yoga class during P.E. class on Friday that was created by Riverside mom and yoga instructor Angela Kilcullen! We encourage you to visit the Wellness Week homepage throughout the rest of the school year for activities, videos, and tips on how to practice mindfulness at home.  

 


The PTA has launched a NEW Logo!

We looked to the School’s architectural elements for inspiration, particularly the etchings of the sun on the building’s center pediment.  We like how the rays of sunshine evoke illuminating our community and beyond, brightening the minds of our children who learn through Riverside School.  We hope this will prompt you to lift your eyes upward at our building – there are some charming details!  
 A very big thank you to Brett Weiner for working with the PTA Board to create the design. 
 
Please visit our logo webpage for more information. 

General PTA Meeting 

Thank you to those who were able to join us for Riverside PTA General Meeting.  We approved a revised 2020-2021 budget, announced this year’s Nominating Committee, and discussed the new PTA logo.  
 
Rebekah Gienapp also presented on speaking to children about race and racism, followed by Q&A.  Please see email sent to access a recording of the presentation, as well as Rebekah’s slideshow and antiracism resource guide.  
 
If you did not complete our Zoom exit poll at the end of the meeting and you have a viewpoint on continuing conversations about equity, race, and bias, we encourage you to complete this very brief survey by Friday, January 29.  Though we’re still working on what this all entails, we would love to have a continuing dialogue on this topic.
