Dear RMS Families,
February 8 – 12 is Teacher
and Staff Appreciation Week and we are ready to celebrate at RMS!
The Parent School Support
Committee (PSSC) would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to
the wonderful staff of Riverview Middle School for their incredible efforts
over the last number of months. The 2020-2021 school year has been like no other
and now more than ever, we say THANK YOU!
To celebrate Teacher and
Staff Appreciation Week, we are asking students and families to consider
sending a note of thanks to the school staff. Individual notes for specific
recipients or a card for the entire staff, sign your name or keep it anonymous.
It is often the small,
genuine things that make the most difference and we are asking if you would
consider helping us share gratitude and thanks to the RMS staff community.
Teachers, educational assistants, administrative staff & custodians –
everyone’s work makes a difference!
Thank you to RMS families
for sending in some appreciation notes with students this week. Let’s make it
extra special for our mask-wearing, sanitization supervising, and color level
adapting RMS staff!
