Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

Your Riverdale PTO is already hard at work making plans for this to be the best school year yet!  We look forward to seeing you at “Meet the Teacher” next Tuesday, July 31 from 3-6 p.m.  There will be popsicles, a fun family photo booth, tours, school supplies, and lots of helpful information for our Riverdale families. 

If you are new to the 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  Riverdale!

Most importantly on this day, you will meet the AMAZING teachers and Administrators that will guide your child/children through this important school year.  They are the force behind Riverdale’s 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 the website.  I promise, your membership does not commit you in any way to a volunteer job!!! What your membership does is it provides much needed classroom supplies and items for our school.  

We want every parent to feel that Riverdale is as much your school as it is your child’s.  For all interested, there are volunteer opportunities to fit every schedule and we look forward to sharing those opportunities with you this year through Skyward and at our Volunteer Fair which will be held in conjunction with the Club Fair and PTO General Meeting on Tuesday, August 28th.  I know you will want to mark your calendars now!  Marco’s will provide a pizza buffet dinner this evening as well.

For the most up to date current events be sure to check the school calendar on the Riverdale website along with the GMSD calendar of upcoming events located on the GMSD website.  Also, follow your PTO on Facebook (@riverdalek8pto), Twitter (@riverdalepto), and Instagram (@riverdalepto).  

On behalf of your PTO, I wish you wonderful remaining days of summer break and I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday at Meet the Teacher! 

Wishing your family the very best for this new school year!
