Thursday, December 18

Riverside’s Winter Program is quickly approaching.  And our kids have been gleefully exercising their vocal chords!  Such a treat before the holiday break.
There will be three performances throughout the school day.  The times are listed below.  While you may attend any performance, which will be the same each time, we have recommended times for families with children at each grade level.  This will help to provide seats for everyone.

8:30a – 9:30a
4th and 5th grade families

10:30a – 11:30a
2nd and 3rd grade families

1:15p – 2:15p 
Kindergarten and 1st grade families

We ask that you please stay for the entire show
that you attend out of respect for the other students.


WHEN:  Monday, December 15 – Friday, December 19 @ lunch + after school       
WHERE:  Parent Center  

The Holiday Boutique will be held during lunch and after school.  Kids will love the chance to buy presents for family and friends (for very little $).  Volunteers will be there to help kids make purchases.  It’s cash only so bring your allowance money!

All proceeds go to PFRD.  Kinders will be escorted.  Envelopes will be provided to each classroom to help kids hold their money.  The envelopes will be printed with a reminder list of family members to help kids manage their purchases.


The Holiday Boutique Sale (HBS) will be open Mon-Fri next week for lunch and after school for about an hour.  We need 3-5 volunteers per sale times to make this successful for all the kids.  It really is so much fun!!!

Interested?  Available?  Please email Glenda Miretsky at and specify which day and time (lunch or after school) you can volunteer.



WHEN:  Monday, December 15 – Thursday, December 18 @ lunch + Winter Program     
WHERE:  Room 16 (daily) + outside of Auditorium (12/18 only)
