Earth Day T-Shirts

My Environmental Science Class is teaming up with Tamara Wheaton's Digital Manufacturing Class to offer the opportunity to purchase "Earth Day T-Shirts" this year.  We would like to make this an annual activity we participate in to help spread environmental awareness in our schools and community.  This year's design was actually created by a former student here at WHS, Jose Overbeck and was "remastered" for lack of a better word, so it could be digitally utilized by Preston Miller's students.  Earth Day is April 22, which this year is actually a Saturday, but we will embrace that day in our classes on Friday, April 21 and give mother earth an assist then.  

It would be fantastic to see our students at all levels have an opportunity to support the cause, so any efforts to collect and return orders is greatly appreciated.   All orders and appropriate fees must be returned to me by Thursday, March 30 so we can order the shirts we need so that Tamara's class can print them in plenty of time for us to distribute for Earth Day.  

Thank you for your assistance  in this matter,
Craig Panich

Spring Concert

March 14, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Students in Kindergarten through 4th grade at Riverview and Parkside will be presenting their spring concert, Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017 in the Wautoma Performing Arts Center (attached to Wautoma High School).  Students will be presenting a variety of songs to showcase their progress in general music class this year! Because of the number of students and the number of expected audience members, there will be two separate performances.

  • Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade will present their concert at 9:00 AM

  • 3rd and 4th grade will present their concert at 1:00 PM.

This is an opportunity for students to showcase their progress of learning and hard work, and their work should be celebrated! I encourage students to dress nicely, as this is a highly attended event.  We want our students to look as good as they sound. Some Suggestions would be to wear attire that they might wear for picture day. If girls choose to wear dress shoes with a heel, please make sure that they are an appropriate height. We want them to be able to move safely on stage.

We hope to see you at the Riverview/Parkside Spring Concert on May 3rd!

Beach Day!

Due to March coming in like a lion, we weren't able to make it to the beach on beach day. So, we brought the beach to our classroom! We enjoyed a relaxing morning of reading by the ocean.
