Treasure report - Mandy - Assembly and Book Fair was last month. And we also had some Professional Development as well.
Teacher report - Mrs. Fox - March is Reading month was a great success. Field trips are starting. Thank you for approving the third grade field trip coming up! The kids did enjoy all the books that were from book fair, so thank you for that!
Principal report - Ms. Kent - Academics report. We had a great month, we got in a lot of reading, and the school looked great! The assembly went well, the presenter was impressed with the energy of our school, and he complimented our student body.
Book Fair - We bought $2000 worth of books for the students and teachers. We still have scholastic dollars left. There are still a few teachers that haven’t used their Christmas gift money yet. We do have a BOGO book fair coming up - that will be May 15 & 16 in the gym. Monday evening would probably be the best night if we are going to do a night time event - 5:30-7:00. If we sell $2000, we will get $1000 in Scholastic dollars back.
March is Reading Month
Bean bags/Stools - We refilled some of the beanbags for the school, it was kind of a big mess!!! We still have some to fill, but perhaps in the future we will just purchase new bean bags to avoid the hassle.
FSU Engineering Class - Some of the teachers attended this event - they loved it! It is to help with STEM learning. Ferris may become the national hub for this STEM learning - so that may be an advantage for us!
Box tops - Maggie - No news - need to collect soon
Shop-A-Roo - Katie - no news
Labels - Becky - not much going
PE request - Mr. Miller - Is requesting some new equipment for P.E. Gopher is the go to brand for equipment, though it may be a little pricier, but they are high quality materials, so it may look expensive, but it should last! There is an assortment of balls, discs, scooters, etc. This equipment will STAY at Riverview. We are working on storage, and some new shelves as well. This is a great way for ALL of the kids to benefit from some of the Walk-A-Thon money raised!! We will vote on a maximum of $3300 and then Ms. Kent and Mr. Miller can get together on some of the details. Approved! Can we do a big “opening” and show all the kids assembly style??
New Benches by Bus - There has been a request to have the benches redone on the buses side of the building. It seems that they are very rarely used other than to jump off of. Let’s have them removed if needed.
Pavilion Meeting - The Pavilion is a little more involved than we initially thought, this is something that we are going to continue to work towards, but it is going to be awhile before it comes to fruition.
Health & Fitness Day - May 26 - We have reserved the inflatables through Jak’s already. We will need to reconfirm.
Family Picnic - May 19 - The menu is always hot dogs and the families can bring in any food the want. We will just keep the food out of the classrooms this year.
4th Grade Clap out - Are we having cookies?? Yes!! Mandy will order the cookies. Emily will order the T-shirts. Any suggestions for Tshirts?? A shirt with all of the classes names in the shape of a cardinal maybe? Or Class of 20--?
Para/Staff Day - Friday April 28 - Gift cards & balloons (Latex free) and decorations
