Back to School Night
Sep 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

7:00 – 7:25 pm: Classroom Session
7:30 – 7:55 pm: Classroom Session
8:00 – 8:30 pm: Parent Social

Plan on joining us for Back-to-School Night! The evening will begin with classroom visits. There are two sessions for each class so parents with more than one child can hear from their child’s teachers about the year ahead. The first session is 7:00 pm to 7:25 pm and the second session is 7:30 – 7:55 pm. Arts and Sciences Faculty will be in their classrooms during both sessions and welcome visits and questions from parents.

Following classroom time is a parent social with light refreshments in the front garden and lobby. Please note that Back to School Night is a parent only event.

All Parents Invited! Scholarship Auction Meeting
Oct 4 @ 8:45 am – 9:45 am

We are Rocking the River again on February 10, 2018 for The River School’s Scholarship Auction. Everyone who is interested in helping or learning about the Auction is invited to attend the first Auction meeting on October 4, at 8:45 am – hosted by Auction Chairs Aimee Burck, Amy Dean, and Miranda Gaier. Chick Fil A will be provided for breakfast!

The Auction is the school’s largest fundraising event. With only five months until the big night, many volunteers and supporters are needed. All of the funds raised at the Auction are designated for The River School Scholarship Fund. Last year we raised over $270,000 in support of scholarship.

We look forward to working with all parents to make this year’s Auction a huge success for all children at The River School.
