Development Update

WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME RIVERSIDE ALUMNA MIRIAM WAHRMAN (pictured right ) as our next speaker in the Adult Dyslexic Speaker Series this coming Wednesday.

Miriam attended Riverside in the 1990s. She is now a Registered Nurse and Nurse Educator, and she has even written a book about nurse education. Parents and grandparents are welcome to join the Morning Assembly Zoom on Wednesday to hear her talk.

Annual Fund Update: I will start to include the status of our current parent participation challenge in this space. Remember, Riverside earns a $5,000 challenge grant if we can hit 100 percent participation again like last year. Goal: 100 percent; Currently: 43 percent.

the Head of School

JUST THIS MORNING, I WAS ABLE TO WATCH
one of our classes run through some of the planned activities for our upcoming Riverside Field Day on May 5. Although last year’s virtual Field Day was great fun, I am very much looking forward to having Field Day back on campus.

On that note, please keep your eyes on the weekly eNewsletter for upcoming events, including Field Day, Founder’s Day, and our Moving-On Ceremony.

The end of the school year countdown has begun, and we have much to celebrate.

— Hal Waller
Head of School
