The 5th Grade yearbook is a wonderful memento of our 5th graders’ time at Riverside. Please pass along all of your great photos from their past 6 years!

  1. Parents collect and submit photos: Until January 31st, we are collecting pictures from your 5th grader’s years at Riverside, including photos from field trips, concerts, first day of school, and PTA activities such as the Boo Bash and Riverside Run. In addition, we are collecting “At-Home Learning” photos from March to June 2020. Please see the Yearbook page for detailed steps on uploading.

  2. Students create their individual page: Your 5th grader will create his/her own student page (after February break).

  3. Parents order yearbooks: Order a yearbook for your 5th grader online (February or later, TBD).
