District Welcome

  • Dear River Grove School Community,


    The 2023-24 school year seemed to fly by! I know all of the Royals are happy to have a beautiful summer ahead of us with warm weather and sunshine. Enjoy!


    RGS students finished strong with athletic events, band and choir concerts and competitions, the one mile Color Run, and a variety of celebrations for students and staff. We continue to be committed to providing a wide variety of opportunities for our students to develop and showcase their talents.


    While families and most staff members are on break, summer is not a break for the school district. In order to support students who would benefit from additional learning opportunities, we are holding a 2-week Jump Start program at the end of July and into August. This program provides an early start back with support in reading, writing, math and English language development, just before the start of school in the fall.


    Summer is also a time when the Board of Education and Administration reflect on goals and accomplishments and make plans for the future. During June, teams of teachers come together to elevate processes such as PBIS, problem solving, reading and phonics instruction, school safety and instructional practices.


    Finally, the district continues to be committed to maintaining updated facilities and improving safety processes. This summer will see the second phase of the construction project that started last year, including an updated fire alarm system along with a public address system able to make building wide safety announcements, new higher efficiency clocks, all new ceilings, new heat and air exchanges in the ceilings and new LED, bright, energy efficient lighting.


    The Fall Student Supply Drop Off combined with the Ice Cream Social will be held on Tuesday, August 13. Then, the 2024-25 school year begins on Wednesday, August 14 for the first day of school. More information will be coming on the Fall events.


    I wish all of the RGS community a happy, fun and safe summer!


    All my best,

    Dr. Rashid
