District Welcome

  • Winter 2019

    Dr. Jan Rashid, Superintendent

    Time sure flies! I can’t believe we are heading into winter and the Holiday Season.

    At River Grove School we are committed to supporting the “whole child”, which means that we believe students need time in academic subjects, being physically active, contributing to their school community, the River Grove community, and time developing positive social communication skills and friendships.

    Students will go outside to get fresh air, physical activity and social time. Please be sure that students are dressed appropriately for outdoor activities.

    The late fall and winter months bring wonderful events at RGS, sponsored by the school, the PTA, RGMO and the Foundation. We are so blessed to have support organizations that work together to provide opportunities for our students to develop their passions and for families to spend time together. We are looking forward to holiday concerts, the sing a long, the holiday workshop, and pancake breakfast. Along with fine arts and crafts events, our student athletes are busy with girls volleyball and boys soccer followed by boys and girls basketball. 

    Please check our calendar on the website for the dates and times of our events.

    Along with the fun and celebration of the holiday season, our students and families know that there are others less fortunate than us. River Grove School continues our focus on #kindnessmatters. We are committed to developing kind and compassionate individuals. We know we can make a positive impact on people’s lives through kindness. We are celebrating our local Veterans with a breakfast and choir performance and our students and staff are collecting to support the Hines VA Fisher House, which supports veterans with serious medical conditions.

    For updates on school events and activities, please refer to the school website. Our twitter feed is easily viewed from the main page of the website. Twitter is a way for the district to keep families and community members up to date on all of the activities taking place in the school. Please follow us @rivergrove85_5, #rgroyals, #WeAreRG.

    I look forward to seeing you at one of our holiday or sporting events!

    All my best,

    Dr. Rashid
