Dear Riverfield Families,
On behalf of the Riverfield Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA), welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to meet the families new to Riverfield and help our community get involved in your children’s school life. All the information you will need to begin the year can be found here on our new PTA website www.riverfieldschoolpta.com. Please check back regularly and visit our calendar for the most up-to-date information.
We encourage all families to join the Riverfield PTA. It is a non-profit organization with the primary focus on parents working with Riverfield to help further enhance the school experience for all students. Parents work to help Riverfield School by volunteering with fundraising, planning social events, and scheduling in-school enrichment activities for students. Historically we've had strong participation in the PTA, helping to make it successful in supporting our kids while also providing the opportunity to meet other parents in the community.
On the morning of Thursday, August 29th, please stop by our Welcome Back Coffee. Riverfield families are invited to gather in the APR (cafeteria) immediately after drop off on the first day of school. It is a nice chance to meet new families, as well as to catch up with friends after the summer. Volunteer information and sign-up opportunities will also be available at the coffee. Following the coffee at 9:30 a.m., there will also be an orientation and Q&A session intended for new families in the school library.
Our first fun family event of the year will be the Back to School Bash on Friday, September 6th at 6:00 p.m. at the Riverfield playground and black top. Bring a blanket, snacks and dinner and come enjoy a wonderful evening with our great community. There will be a DJ and ice cream from Saugatuck Sweets! (Please bring your own money for ice cream.) (Rain date September 13, 2019)
Finally, we welcome all questions, comments, or concerns to help the PTA continue to serve our kids and the school in the most effective way possible. These can be directed to me or any member of the board, which is listed on the Riverfield PTA website. Thank you for your support, and best wishes for a wonderful school year!
Riverfield PTA President
