PARENT MEETING ON TUESDAY, APRIL 15 5:30 ABOUT SUCCESSION PROCESS
The River School Board of Directors would like to invite you to attend a meeting to hear about the process of finding Linda Inlay's successor. In addition, they would like to hear from you what qualities you are looking for in her successor. The meeting on Tuesday will start at 5:30 in Rm. 4 preceding the Village Parent Club meeting in the same room. Enter from the front parking lot. Because Harvest will be having an Open House that same night, it suggested you arrive early to get a parking spot.
If you are unable to attend, please send your written list of qualities to school. Thank you for your input which is important to the Board in their selection process.
A letter from Linda Inlay to River School Parents
After eighteen years at River School, I have decided that this will be my last year as director/principal. When I was asked in 1996 to lead River School, I accepted the position because I wanted to show that Sr. Joan’s educational philosophy that began in a small private school in Hawaii could work in a public school. It was my hope that River would become the model for other public schools to follow. We tell our students that when you teach others, you learn more. That certainly has been my experience teaching and learning the Ho`ala Philosophy over the years at River to teachers, parents, and students.

PERFORMING ARTS NIGHT AT RIVER SCHOOL
The arts are an integral part of River School’s mission to nurture the WHOLE person – one who is self-assured, responsible, and a positive contributor to the community – all of which leads to academic success. Middle school is a crucial time in the development of a student’s unique identity and the arts encourage this growth through the creative process embedded in our courses of Chorus, Band, Visual Arts, World Percussion, and Drama. Here below are River students demonstrating at our December Performing Arts Night how the arts encourage their creative spirit and enthusiasm for life!
Visual Arts of River
The arts are an important part of River's program that nurtures the creativity and self-expression of each student's uniqueness. The series of student work displayed here highlights this creativity and unique self-expression. Enjoy!
TOMATO FESTIVAL AT RIVER!
On September 25, River School had its first Tomato Festival. Students from every advisory worked with teachers to celebrate the harvest of our school and local gardens. There was a salsa recipe competition with 8 different student/parent -made salsas and chips. Everyone voted for their favorite and Ryan Olson in Mr. Mettler's advisory won the most votes. There was also music (including salsa!), dancing, tomato-themed games, local olive oil tasting and face painting. A good time was had by all. This would not have been possible without the help of a great group of students and parents. Thanks to everyone! Our next food/community event - perhaps a pumpkin festival?
NAPA TECH CHALLENGE
The Napa Tech Challenge is a great opportunity for your middle and high-school students to team-up, design, build, and compete with their own solutions to solve a real world problem. NapaLearns.org and NapaTechChallenge.org has partnered with the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose to bring you this year’s “Tech Challenge”. The challenge this year is to harness the wind to move water. This is a tech challenge for middle and high school students available to ALL our middle and high schools. It is a terrific way to bring all of our schools together for a hands-on project that will help foster STEM skills.
