18th Annual Auction

Please take the time to read this letter from Kim to all parents about how to take part by contributing donations , attending the event, and volunteering your time. You should've also received it in hard copy last week in boomerang folders/backpacks.

This is the biggest parent-organized fundraiser at Riverside each year. It is essential to closing the gap between tuition income and program expenses. Our annual theme of “Oh, The Places They’ll Go!” highlights the many opportunities our students have to explore, learn and create thanks to the success of events like this. Please reach out to friends or staff members if you have any questions about how to support the auction.

Costume Closet Organizing

Many of you know that alumni parent and faculty spouse Rachel Gilbert has managed the chaos of our costume closet ("behind the trapezoidal door") for many years, along with leading our middle school costuming elective. Because of her singular efforts our students have been able to add creative flair and learn some textile arts as part of their dramatic endeavors. Thank you, Rachel!

Parents Jenna Heinrich (3rd grader Clint and 6th grader Nick) and Tricia Bunnell (1st grader Zoe and 4th grader Sofia) are ready to take over her leadership, and for that we are also so grateful! In order to set them up for success, we'd like to have a costume-organizing chore-party on Saturday, December 1, from 9:30 am -12:30 pm. We will let them take the lead and put us to work folding, sorting, and labeling so that they can make good use of the space and resources moving forward. We hope that a few parents will join in the fun, please let Nelia know if you plan to help out.
