Music Notes

RECENTLY, RIVERSIDE SCHOOL CHILDREN TOOK TURNS using mallets to play an instrument in music class. Students enjoyed learning about the different sounds that the soft and hard mallets make. Thanks to Annie’s family for letting her share her instrument!

Development Update

 I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT STUDENTS AND STAFF
raised $499 in last Friday’s ‘Wacky Hair Day’ fundraiser. All told, we raised $1,320 for Children’s Hospital of Richmond thanks to the January, February, and March ‘Fun Friday’ Fundraisers! What an amazing display of the spirit of philanthropy at Riverside!

Fran Kay (pictured right ), a grandparent of two Riverside alumni and Chair of the school’s Advisory Council, who also serves on the volunteer board of the Children’s Hospital Foundation, said that she is so proud and grateful for our students’ generosity.

Last Friday’s Corny Joke

Did you hear about the bunny that took an elevator all the way up to the 100th floor?

Yes, it was a real hare-raising experience
