Superintendent Letter

August 27, 2015

Welcome back to school!


I would like to thank the teachers, staff, parents, and students for all of the hard work and effort that went into the excellent start we had this year.  The building has been well cleaned and many repair and upgrade projects were completed.  The teachers have put in countless hours preparing curriculum and growing professionally.  Our support staff worked tirelessly to register new students, order and inventory supplies, and to ensure that students would arrive safely to school.

It was a pleasure to meet many students and parents at our Ice Cream Social and Open House events.  It is easy to see why River Grove School is a wonderful place – it is because it is full of great people!

We continue to look for ways to better reach our community and provide families with the information they need.  Soon, we will unveil a re-designed web site that will hopefully be more user friendly and have the information parents, students and staff need within just 1-3 clicks! 

In an effort to connect with students, parents and community via social media, we are also starting a school Twitter account.  Please use @rivergrove85_5 to follow our school and look for important announcements and interesting educational connections. 

Additionally, we like to connect with families using our automated Blackboard system via phone and email.  Please make sure the school office has up to date phone numbers and email addresses for your family so that you will receive important updates in a timely manner.

It is going to be a fantastic year at River Grove School! 

Mr. Joseph Simpkins
