☘️SHAMROCK HUNT TOMORROW ☘️

Hey Neighbors! Over the next few weeks, many of us will be increasing our time spent at home. If you have young children it can be hard to find things to do all day, for potentially 14 + days.

Here is a way for our community to still get outside and do something fun, without touching, sneezing or coughing on each other.

☘️St Patrick’s day is coming is tomorrow.

Let's try this out... a ☘️Shamrock Hunt☘️!
☘️All you have to do is put a Shamrock in a front window or front door on March 17th. ☘️ That’s it! Color it, paint it, cut it out, print it from the printer, whatever. Add sparkles, glitter, feathers-you get the point. Have fun with it!

This next step will be good for everyone! Get out, go for a walk around your neighborhood and see how many shamrocks you can find on your ☘️Shamrock Hunt!
Feel free to post some pictures here if you like and share it on any neighborhood sites. It’s easy. No human contact. Get fresh air. Don’t buy toilet paper. Just put a shamrock in your window. ☘️

Please invite other neighbors and let everyone know! We’ll wave to you from at least 6 feet away. 👋🏼

Feel free to print this coloring page to share a shamrock!

As part of the school's 4th quarter reading focus "Riverside Readers, Riverside Leaders" we're excited to announce a community readathon for both in-person and BOS families!
We are looking for a few parents to help with this event. We will use an established software to help track all the data so it shouldn't be too much of a time commitment but a great way to get involved! For more information, please contact Paige @[email protected].

A HUGE thank you to Kimberlie Ann Photography, Sound Wave Events and our amazing staff for this memorable kindergarten graduation celebration!
Link to all photos for these kinder families is located in the comments.

Last week I had the honor of documenting the graduation of the Riverside Elementary kindergartners (@riversidefalcons). Having a graduate of my own, I know what a disappointment it was for these kids to have missed out a formal ceremony, especially when it's a big milestone. So, it was my chance to give back a little!

I got permission from the school to share a few. Feel free to share and/or tag someone if you know them!
