Welcome to Riverbend School

Riverbend Roundup | June 26-30, 2017


Dear Parents and Guardians


I hope this 'Round Up' finds you excited for the end of the school year and the summer activities you have planned with your families! As Principal, it has been an honor to serve the Riverbend School community this past year. I have come to learn that at Riverbend there is truth in the saying, ‘It Takes a Village to Raise a Child’. Each day is an opportunity to witness parents involved in their children’s learning alongside teachers who are dedicated to their progress and improvement. I am excited about the future and look forward to many years of great learning.


Congratulations to all of our students for completing another significant year in their educational journey! To our grade sixes, enjoy your junior high school years; you are ready! We welcome the many new kindergarten students and families and all new students to Riverbend for next year.


Thank you to our School Council who met on a regular basis each month and for their strong support of our school, as it is very much appreciated. Many learning resources and events would not be possible without the dedicated commitments of this small but strong group of parents.


Thanks to the staff of Riverbend School who have made this a great year of learning through their hard work and dedication to our students. As I think back over the year, I am amazed by all the events that staff and students were involved in, we are indeed a very busy place! At the end of the year we have to say ‘Farewell for Now Friend’ to several staff members. Farewell to Ms. Cayla Medhurst, Ms. Chelsea Ray, Mrs. Lindsay Tingley and Ms. Cassandra Lapthorne – all of us wish you the very best in the future.


For the 2017 – 2018 School Year, Riverbend School welcomes back Mrs. Laura Smith, Mrs. Charlotte Wallewein and Mrs. Jennifer Moradi – who are returning from maternity leaves. We also welcome Ms. Lindsey Bourgeois who will be job sharing in a classroom with Mrs. Wallewein and welcome to Mrs. Bernice Gibb who will be joining Riverbend staff as Physical Education teacher.


Have a great summer with your families!
Mike Hebenton
