Seitz Middle School facelifts are well underway

RIVERVIEW SCHOOLS

Seitz Middle school is undergoing some major renovations. Some of the construction is done, some is ongoing and some is still to come.

Here is an update on what has happened and what is coming.

Already completed at the school are the installation of a new security system, a new dishwasher and ovens in the kitchen, restroom valve replacement and new water fountains with water bottle fill stations.

Work is well under way on renovating the school’s pool and you can see updates via a link on the school’s website.

Still to come are office renovations, a cafeteria sound system, new signage on the auditorium entrance and a lighting LED upgrade.

New outdoor patio sun sails will be installed in the summer and the resurfacing of the science lab floor has yet to be scheduled.

When the work is completed, Seitz students will have a newer, brighter up-to-date place in which to learn.

Riverview High School Student Council does good work

Riverview Community High School students and staff showed their generosity during our Winter Spirit Week Feb. 10-14 by raising money for Enchanted Makeovers, which is a non-profit organization that creates environments and programs for women and children in shelters.

Student Council and Key Club members sold candy, Student Council sold spirit week buttons and the biggest fundraiser was Delay the Day on Friday. 

Throughout the week, students brought in coins to put in their first-hour teacher’s collection can. On Friday, first hour classes could not couldn’t start until the teacher counted all of the coins. 

For additional monetary donations, students could purchase challenges for their teacher to delay class even longer, such as requiring the teacher to count the coins with his/her non-dominant hand. 

Delay the Day was a huge success with some classrooms raising over $150 in coins!

With all of these exciting fundraisers combined, we surpassed our goal of raising $2,000 for Enchanted Makeovers!

Come see the RCHS play March 26-27

Riverview Community High School’s Drama Club is producing The Diviners by Jim Leonard, Jr.

Set in the Great Depression, The Diviners has so much to offer.  

This play is a luminous story of religion and magic, faith and doubt, love and grief. The comedic drama features a strong group of well-rounded friends and neighbors, the well-intentioned residents of a small town in search of it’s past, and uncertain of its future (stageagent.com).  

The play features eleven of our members in an ensemble cast and will be performed on Thursday, March 26 and Friday, March 27 at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $7.
