Are you ready for the beginning of a GREAT adventure?  

Your Riverdale School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is already hard at work, making plans for this school year to be all that and so much more for your family! A brand new building, more parking, our newly independent PTO! Yes, even more local control...it is sounding GREAT already!

We look forward to seeing you all at the Ribbon Cutting for the new Middle School Building and Meet the Teacher Day on Thursday, August 3.  There will be cookies, the now famous "back-to-school" photo booth, tours, school supplies and each family will be able to take home a special keepsake piece of ribbon that will be cut for the new building. The Ribbon Cutting will take place at 2:30pm with activities to follow. Classrooms will be open from 3:00-6:00.

If you are a new Riverdale family please be sure to stop by the New Family Welcome Table.  Our PTO board members are eager to meet you and share a folder full of great Riverdale information. We are thrilled to welcome you to the Riverdale community!

Most importantly on this day, you will meet the AMAZING teachers and administration that will guide your child/children through a GREAT adventure this school year. They are the force behind the Riverdale success!

In the midst of all the back-to-school excitement, I hope you will make the time to join your Riverdale School PTO.  Family memberships for this school year are $15, GMSD employees are $5 and membership can be paid with the click of a button through this website.  Now that we have local control and are independent ALL membership dues paid will remain at our school!  

Be sure to check out the PTO calendar of events and follow us on Facebook (@riverdalek8pto), Twitter (@riverdalepto), and Instagram (@riverdalepto).  Should event dates change, we will update as quickly as possible. 

On behalf of your PTO, I hope you will be soaking up these last wonderful days of summer break! But get ready for August 3-- your great adventure awaits!!

Looking very forward to a great year,

Bonnie Lee

Riverdale School PTO President
