For the Future of Riverside—Sign Up for Next Week’s
Annual Fun-Filled Phonathon
We could really use some extra Phonathon volunteers next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, so this is your last chance to sign up and help Riverside raise some much-needed funds.
Another way to help (and to make sure you don’t get a call) is to make your Annual Fund donation.
Thanks so much for your help and support!

Open Registration is Now Available for Riverside Summer Camp
Help your child enjoy school to its fullest by providing and empowering them with the skills they need to succeed. Riverside Summer Camp provides campers with one-on-one, multisensory language tutoring in a friendly, supportive environment with a highly-trained Orton-Gillingham teacher.
Of course, it wouldn’t be summer camp if there weren’t a lot of fun and activities along the way! Our time together with your child not only helps them stay active and build social skills, but unlocks their full potential by facilitating their joy of learning, while boosting their confidence level. Camp registration is open to the public.
Please note: Camp fills quickly, so please reserve your child’s spot today.
• – For rising kindergarten-sixth grade
• – Monday-Friday, July 15-26, 2019
• – 8:30 a.m.-2:15 p.m.
• – Cost is $1,050 (non-refundable deposit of $200 is due with registration and applied toward tuition). Tuition balance is due by June 1.
RIVERSIDE SCHOOL STUDENTS HAVE COMPLETED four weeks of ORO Visual Music app instruction from its creator, Mr. Steve Van Dam. Students will continue to practice musical sounds and improvisation with the ORO app during March music classes.
Additionally, Mr. Van Dam invites our students to explore at home with the app. In order to play with the “Roots of Music” content set that we used in class, please follow these download instructions:
Note: Before you begin, the ORO Visual Music app needs to be
installed on the iPhone/iPad.
Step 1: Using the iPad / iPhone, open Safari and click, (or type in), this link: bit.ly/OROafrica3. (If you have Google Chrome / Google Drive installed on your computer as your default browser, you may have to click the ‘download’ arrow in the top right of your browser before ‘Step 2.’)
Step 2: This opens a ‘Whoops…’ message. Click ‘Download.’
Step 3: It takes a few seconds for the download, then a prompt pops up and you click on ‘Open in ORO Visual Music’ This will load the ORO Set, and the ORO app should open. (Sometimes you need to quit ORO and reopen.)
