AGES & STAGES COFFEE HOUSE

Inspired by parent suggestions that we continue to offer opportunities for parents to discuss issues of teaching, learning, and parenting, and in particular questions about developmentally appropriate strategies, Michelle has planned the following coffee house event for Tuesday, March 12 at 5:30 pm, open to Riverside families: Ages & Stages: a conversation with parents and professionals about what to do when. 

Special guests will include Dr. Amanda Van Straten (neurologist and parent of kindergartner Jacob), Scott Fournier (psychologist/therapist - emotional and social development of preadolescence and adolescence), and Sheryl Cole, psychologist/therapist for family health and the importance of structure and boundaries). 

There will be time to discuss topics like personal technology, building confidence and trust, generational changes in parenting, rules and chores at home, executive functioning, or sports trauma in small group conversation, as well as brief presentations from each guest. We look forward to seeing lots of Riverside parents there!

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.
