Dear Upcoming Honors English 9 Student,
Welcome to the Warrior Family! You have chosen to take 9th Grade Honors English for the 2019-2020 school year, which is why you are receiving this letter. This letter is to inform you of a few things that you need to know for my class.
First of all, I would like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Emily Hudnall. I am a 2010graduate of Riverside High School and a 2014 graduate of West Virginia State University. I have been working at Riverside as a 9th grade English teacher since 2014. Outside of school, one of my favorite things to do is paint.
Summer Homework: If you have friends or family who have taken 9th Grade Honors English in teh past, you may recall that they had a summer reading assignment. However, this year I have decided that you will NOT have a summer reading assignment... in fact, you will have NO summer homework at all for my class. Instead, we will begin the school year with the novel that you would have read if I had given it to you.
With that said, if you wish to get a head start on reading our first novel that we will begin in August, you may do so (you must provide your own copy of the book if you plan to read over the summer). The novel is called Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. If you choose not to read it over the summer and instead wait until we read it as a class in August, that is perfectly fine. It is NOT required that you read the novel over the summer.
Please remember that you have signed up for an honors level course. The expectation placed on you will be higher than the expectations placed on students in non-honors classes. You will be expected to keep up with the course work as well the pace that the work is given to you. It is recommended, but not required, that you utilize a planner or personal calendar of some sort to stay organized.
Some other recommended items to have for my class are: plenty of pens or pencils, a notebook, a folder to keep handouts in, highlighters, etc.
I look forward to meeting you in August and having you in class. If you have any questions before the start of school, my email address is located below. Have a wonderful summer!

The Riverside food pantry has received many generous donations from both private citizens as well as companies. We have been given monetary donations as well as food donations. Some donors in-clude; The Kanawha County Commission, Edgewood Elementary, DuPont Middle School, Ball Toyo-ta, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Covenant House, the Republican Committee of West Virginia as well as private citizens. One citizen donated turkey breasts for the distribution day in December. Riverside held a Holiday Food drive in which many teachers sponsored a food item, having their students bring in the item.
Thank you to all of the donors who have given food! Without donations, it would not be possible! On December 15th, we served 86 families from the community. Community service student volunteer to help people get their food and answer questions if they have any. Students also stock, organize and inventory the pantry. If a person or family needs food, he or she can come to the food pantry on the food pantry distribu-tion day, which is the third Saturday of the month. They do not need to pre register or fill out any forms when they come. They are not asked any questions.
The month of November was the March of Dimes Premature Awareness Month. FBLA set up a Go Fund Me account and raised awareness at school the week of November 12-16, and on the 16th we lit the school up with purple!
The students raised a total of $65 for the March of Dimes! Proud of our Future Business Leaders of America!
Mr. Burford had his last official day of school on November 30, 2018. Mr. Burford played a large role in Riverside High School. Mr. Burford was our school’s FCA sponsor for many years, leading and encouraging kids to join the wonderful Chris-tian organization. His FCA kids will miss his presence dearly, calling him one of the brightest lights in the school. He was not just a big part of the FCA Program, but al-so a big part in the Carver Career program. He loved to talk to the kids, he was stern with them, but he loved them dearly and talked about them often. Those who did not know Burford did not know how much of a role he played in Riverside, he was truly the glue of the school, he will be missed dearly but we hope he enjoys his retirement. (Matthew 5:16)
For the first time in many years, we sold completely out of the 2018-19 yearbook!
The good news is that the printing plant had a few extra copies sitting on a shelf. They are shipping what they have immediately, but there are only 25.
These 25 copies will go fast. You need to act quickly if you would like to get one. Pre-Orders are being taken in the School Store during lunch. The price is still only $45.00 and the school store is only accepting cash at this time.
When these 25 are gone, that will be it - No more will be coming.
