District Welcome

  • Dear River Grove School Community,

    Time sure flies! I can’t believe winter and the Holiday Season are here!

    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.

    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. In the winter months we enjoy the holiday concerts, the sing a long, the holiday workshop, Youth Government celebrations and the Band and Choir performances at our pancake breakfast. Along with fine arts and crafts events, our student athletes are busy with boys and girls basketball and cheerleading.

    While we enjoy the fun and celebration of the holiday season, our students and families recognize that there are others less fortunate than us. River Grove School is committed to developing kind and compassionate individuals. We know we can make a positive impact on people’s lives through kindness. We recently celebrated our local Veterans with an all school and community ceremony, and our students and staff are collecting to support the Hines VA Fisher House, which supports veterans with serious medical conditions, and the Ronald McDonald House where children undergoing medical treatment at Loyola Hospital are able to stay with their families. Our Student Council is leading a fundraiser to donate to the Almost Home Foundation, an animal shelter for pets looking for their forever homes. Please consider donating to these worthy local causes.

    I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events and I wish the entire community a Happy Holiday and a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!

    All my best,

    Dr. Rashid
