Also on Friday is Riverside’s annual Arts on the River event!  I highly encourage you to attend.  There will be so many amazing things going on, showcasing all our school has to offer!

  • musical performances by band, orchestra, and choir students (a few hundred of them!)
  • art displays by our talented art students
  • cookie decorating in FACS
  • hands-on projects in our Art and Tech Ed classes
  • an instrument “petting zoo” where you can test your musical talent
  • silent auction items (including an Ice Cream Date with me and my pup Zoey! always a hot-ticket item!)
  • food from Moe’s Southwestern Grill
  • fun and friendship!

I hope to see many of you there this Friday, February 10th, from 6:00-8:30pm.  Come, have fun, and support the PTO and Riverside!
