Arts on the River

Hello Parents!

Arts on the River is coming up soon!  This year, Arts on the River is Friday, February 20th.  For those of you who don’t know, Arts on the River is a great family-friendly event, and is our biggest school fundraiser of the year!

There will be food, activities, games, music performances, art displays, art demonstrations, an instrument “petting zoo,” a silent auction, poetry readings….everything you could need for a fantastic Friday evening!

The PTO and Arts on the River Committee are in great need of help during this event.  Below is a VolunteerSpot link.  IF you are able, please sign up to help out on February 20th.


I know they would truly appreciate the help, and everyone at Riverside appreciates the support!  Looking forward to seeing you on February 20th!

NAMM Best Communities for Music Education

Hello parents!

Every year, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) populates a list of the Best Communities for Music Education.  There are two categories: one for the school district, and one for individual schools.

I think that Riverside, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools as a whole, definitely qualify as a “Best Community for Music Education.”  We have such fantastic programs across the board – band, orchestra and choir.  We have thousands of students involved in programs from K-12, with nearly 50 teachers providing them with wonderful musical experiences.

If you have a moment to fill one of these surveys out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Whole District: http://www.nammfoundation.org/educator-resources/best-communities-music-education-survey


Thanks so much for all you do to support music education in your child’s life!
