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.
Scheduled for July 17 and 18
Upcoming Seniors should be receiving appointment cards in the mail from Prestige Portraits (Lifetouch). The dates are July 17th and 18th and everyone will be assigned a specific time.
Please plan to drop by the Aux Gym on these days even if you don't receive an appointment card. There is no charge to sit for the drape shot, additional services and packages are available at various prices.
There will be a make-up Drape Shot day on November 15th during school time, and Seniors can also schedule an appointment with Prestige directly to visit their Cross Lanes studio as needed.
Please plan to come pose for your drape shot if at-all possible because this is the picture that will be used in the yearbook. Seniors who have not posed for their Drape Shot by Christmas Break will not be included in the Senior Portrait section of the yearbook.
