Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for trusting us with your children every day. Like every school, there are things we do well and things we need to improve. What makes Riverside different then? We use data to make our decisions, and we embrace change when it needs to be made!
With that in mind, we truly hope that your children will return to Riverside next year. Early re-enrollment provides us the data we need to purchase supplies and alter staffing to meet our scholars’ needs.
The deadline for early re-enrollment with incentive is February 28, 2022. As always, if you have questions, please call the office at 513-921-7777.

First Grade has been doing great with learning measurements with centimeters.

We are improving at working as a team and learning how to resolve conflicts.
Mrs. Zajac – 3rd Grade
This week 3rd grade is continuing to adjust to Mrs. Zajac being in the classroom and developing a new routine. We are practicing multiplying to find the area and why that is important in real life. In Grammar, we are working on punctuating sentences correctly. We are practicing writing opinion pieces every day and getting faster at our writing. We are also working hard at introduction and conclusion sentences. We are going to keep practicing our spelling words and using them in our writing. We are learning about the importance of order in a story and paying attention to order as we write.

Ms. Jaimee Hebert – 5th Grade
This week has been busy in 5th grade. In math we have started a fraction project. The students are creating their own ice cream shop. In ELA we ended our Unit with an end of unit assessment. The students did a really nice job with this. We have also been working on our final drafts of our love paper. In social studies we finished up our unit on Mexico and took our final test this Friday. In science we have been talking about food chains and food webs. Please make sure you have access to our class dojo as I post pictures and reminders daily!
Ms. Arriane Brents – Middle School Reading
This week in the sixth grade we will be working on standard R.L.6.6 which addresses perspective. Perspective is a character’s stance or point of view on a given topic. As you are listening to music on the way to school or watching tv, ask your child to describe the perspective of the character, and what background information is presented to support their reasoning.
In the seventh and eighth grades we assessing claims made in texts, and determining whether or not the claim is properly supported by relevant evidence.
Mr. Stephen Voegele – Middle School Math
It has been cold around here lately. Let’s make sure that we are dressing for the weather but staying in uniform at the same time. Also don’t forget re-enrollment. Also 8th graders start thinking about what high school you are going to attend next year. Mount Auburn is one of our sister schools that you can think about attending. On to the work at hand. 6th grade has started algebra with expressions and variables. 7th grade is working on scale modeling and 8th grade will finally finish up linear equations with an end module assessment next week.

Ms. Jamie Isidore – Middle School Writing and Social Studies
This week in Ms. Isidore’s ELA and Social Studies class my amazing scholars have worked on their February writing piece on an inventor who has invented a product that assists us today. I cannot wait for the final piece! Some of my scholars are showing off their crafty side! They are making mini models of these inventions! The anticipation of this completed writing assignment and artwork has me on edge! Next week each class is going into a different direction in their writing. I am excited to see how scholars will argue their way out of writing this coming unit!
Mrs. Deborah Glosson

The special education department is happy to introduce our new intervention specialist, Mrs. Kristi Flannery. She has many years of experience as an intervention specialist and is excited to join the team! Mrs. Glosson has new Valentine’s Day décor up this week outside of her classroom made by her talented students. Swing by to see some super adorable robots! In Mrs. Ragle’s room you can find a nice new calming corner to come take a break. Calming corners are beneficial resources to have in the classroom for break times and cool downs. There are many wonderful ideas on Pinterest to make your very own calming corner at home.
