Publish Date: 08/07/2020

Dear Riverview Family,

I am so excited and honored to start this school year with all of you! I look forward to working with our students, families and educators to make this the best school year it can be! I am proud to be part of the Giant family and to raise my own kids in this community that is full of opportunities through Marion Community Schools. 

The past four years, I have had the pleasure of getting to know hundreds of students and their individual needs. I plan to use that to continue our schoolwide mission. Riverview Elementary School is a place where all students are encouraged to strive for excellence academically, socially, and emotionally in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Our goal is to work in partnership with our parents and community to create an environment where students are empowered to discover their strengths and achieve their maximum potential. Opportunities are available for enrichment, intervention, and remediation as necessary. We set high expectations for all students. Our entire school community shares the belief that all children can and will learn. 

I am proud of our family and staff response to our current situation!  I would like to thank you each of you for your support during this new school year.  I promise to do what is best for your child and do my best to keep them safe!  Thank you for trusting me with your child.  Whether your child is on-site, or attending our Giant Online Academy, we are going to have a great school year together!

I encourage our parents to frequently visit our webpage and follow our social media for up to date and accurate information.  We would like to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year, where we will accomplish GIANT success. 

Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we do what is best for all students during these challenging, unpredictable times!  Once again, welcome back! Let’s make is another great year in the Giant Nation.
