News from Mrs. Thode – April 2021
Spring is in the air! April is here and we are now in the final quarter of school. We have a lot to get through in the fourth quarter.
Students and staff are still required to wear face masks at school. We have run out of disposable youth-size masks. Please send a mask with your child each day, as we do not have enough masks for all students each day. Thank you for your help with this.
2021-2022 Kindergarten Registration:
Friday, April 16 is Kindergarten Registration for children that will be 5-years old by September 15, 2021. If you have a child or know of a child that will be coming to kindergarten in the fall, please call the office. Our registrar, Kim Ritchison, will set up a time for you to come on April 16. There will be no school for current kindergarten students on this day.
Students at Riverside in third, fourth, and fifth grades will be taking the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress(ISASP) from April 26-May 15. These students will be tested in the areas of reading, writing, and math. Fifth grade will also test in the area of science. Students will be working on practice tests before the testing window. Tests will be administered each day starting Monday, April 26 through Friday, April 30. May 3-15 will be used for make-up tests. During the testing window, it is important that students get a good night’s sleep and eat breakfast.
