District Welcome

  • Winter 2022

    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. 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 boys and girls basketball and cheerleading.

    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 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. Please consider donating to these worthy local causes.

    When we return from the Winter Break, we are looking forward to the River Grove School District Foundation’s Alumni Night on Friday, January 13. This is a wonderful opportunity for past students, families and staff to enjoy time together at RGS and to see various building updates. Here is the link to information and an rsvp for the exciting event- https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1W-y24pkCIWRdq28iD-u-iHASxIyIbz64g_xs72c-xh8/viewform?ts=634b7866&edit_requested=true

    Dr. Rashid
