Dear Riverdale Heights Families,
Conferences: We are excited to share your student's progress with you! Elementary Conferences will be held Tuesday, November 1st - Friday, November 11th. Teachers have blocked availability over the course of those two weeks to meet with our families. November 3rd will serve as the district set night, with conferences being held from 3:30pm - 8:00pm. We would like to invite you to sign up for an onsite conference during that time. If that date is not possible for your family to come to the school, please look at the registration link and choose another time your child's teacher is available. All conferences scheduled through the link will be held in person.
How to sign up for a Conference:
Choose the teachers you would like to meet with.
Enter your student’s first and last name, your email address and name.
The system will send you a confirmation email. Click on the link in the email to see available times.
The system will send you a confirmation email with the date and time you have reserved. That email will include a link that allows you to change your appointment time, if you need to.
The system will send you a reminder a few days before your conference.
If you do not have access to a computer, please contact your child’s teacher to schedule your conference. The conferences will be scheduled for 20 minutes in length, and we ask teachers and families to keep to the time allotment, so it does not impact other schedules.
Read at Riverdale Heights: The United Way’s Read United program has started and we’re looking for volunteers to read to Riverdale Heights students. It’s just once a week for 30 minutes and it makes a big difference for our young readers! Click here to volunteer!
Halloween Parties will be at the end of the day on Monday, October 31. We will limit in-class visitors to the two PTA room parents. However, all families are invited to our outside parade at 2:10pm – weather permitting. As a reminder, please have your child choose a costume that brings out the best in them. No weapons, gory costumes or depictions of characters that harm children. We want everyone to have a fun time and not worry about being too scared. If you have any questions about costume choice, don’t hesitate to reach out. We can't wait to see your creativity.
