Rivercrest Parents and Community The extreme cold weather that we all just went through took it’s toll on some parts of our school and we need one more day without students to have everything fully operational for their return. So, students will be off on Monday and will return on a normal schedule on Tuesday, February 23rd. Rivercrest will be under a water boil notice when we return on Tuesday. We will have water which has been properly boiled and disposable cups available for all students when they return, and we are in the process of trying to secure bottled water. Parents, please send bottled water for your child to drink during the day if you are able to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stanley Jessee

Rivercrest ISD Parents and Community, In anticipation of the extreme weather conditions that are forecast for this weekend and next week, Rivercrest ISD is cancelling classes for Tuesday, February 16th and Wednesday, February 17th. I know the forecast for the rest of the week doesn’t look very promising, but we will make those decisions as we get closer to that time and have more current information. As a reminder, all students are out of school Monday due to a scheduled staff development day. These days that are taken off next week are not “remote learning” days, they are “snow days”😊. It isn’t very often that we get snow in our area so I hope our kids (and parents) are able to enjoy time playing and having fun! Keep in mind though, the temperatures and conditions this weekend and next week will no doubt be uncomfortable, and can also be dangerous, so please take care of yourselves and be careful. Stay warm and be safe, Stanley Jessee

“Caught Being Kind” We're celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week February 8th-12th. Our faculty will be watching closely to "catch" students demonstrating kindness. If your student is "caught" then their name will be placed on the KINDNESS BANNER and they might win a door prize! If you'd like to reinforce KINDNESS at home, here are some things to think about. "Catch your child being good." Find something that you like and praise them for it! "You made your bed without being asked, that's terrific!" or "I was watching you play with your sister and you were very patient." These statements will do more to encourage good behavior over the long run than repeated lectures. Make a point of finding something to praise every day and be generous with rewards. Your love, hugs and compliments can work wonders and are often reward enough. Soon you will find you are "growing" more of the behavior you would like to see! Have fun spreading kindness and please let me know if I can assist you in any way. Stacy Irwin, RES Counselor
