🚨Science lesson Alert🚨 One of the most important roles a meerkat plays is that of the sentry, or watch guard. One meerkat will stand on its hind legs, propped up by its tail, and act as a lookout while the rest of the mob is outside looking for food and frolicking in the sun. Our 4th and 5th graders had an awesome hands on learning experience creating their own safety and danger calls mimicking what meerkats do! Awesome job by everyone! They were too fast to be caught by the predator! #BeACharger⚡⚡

Riverside Public School receives FFVP Sponsor The USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides funding to elementary schools to serve free fresh fruits and vegetables to children throughout the school day. The program is designed to help combat childhood obesity by teaching children the importance of developing healthy eating habits. The FFVP expands the variety of fruits and vegetable children experience and hopefully increases their fruit and vegetable consumption. Funds provided to each school cover the costs associated with administering the program including the cost of food and labor. Districts eligible must have fifty percent of its families qualify for free and reduced lunches. Riverside Public School no longer meets this criterion. We are so thrilled to announce that Henderson State Bank will sponsor the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program at both Riverside campuses for the 2019-20 school year. Thank you Henderson State Bank!!! #BeACharger⚡⚡ #BestCommunity #FamilyFirst
