Riverside seeks to honor alumni serving in military

Kay Vasilakis

Riverside School staff is asking for names (and possibly photos, rank and branch of the military, and location of service ) of Riverside alumni who are serving overseas. The school would like to make a display, showing where those alumni are stationed around the world. Students and staff want to support them in thought and prayer, make world events a little more real for Riverside’s current students, and honor its former students. Please call Jack Jabbour at 625-7822 with information.CSAP testing is what’s happening all over the Garfield Re-2 School District and throughout the state. All students should have had plenty of rest and hearty breakfasts to carry them through the critical testing times. Every single student needs to perform his/her very best on these tests.What does a school do when part of it is under construction during the school year, and during CSAP testing? Things that many of us don’t think about have to be considered, and principal Bill Zambelli of Kathryn Senor Elementary has made safety a high priority. Fences are up to keep visitors outside the construction area. Construction personnel wear identification badges, and emergency evacuation procedures have been reconfigured to avoid any potentially dangerous areas. The principal meets with the construction supervisory staff for updates on progress and to express concerns.The Garfield Re-2 Transportation Department’s Exceptional Bus Students of the Month for February are Daylan Eckley from Wamsley Elementary, nominated by Route #9 driver Sharon Frickey; Samantha Thompson from Riverside School, nominated by Route #22 driver Connie Chenoweth; and Chris Sims from Rifle High School, nominated by Route #11 driver Dawn Patton.Congratulations to Esperanza Luna, Emmylou Rose, Jorge Alvarado, Yolanda Vallejo, Raul Villalobos, Yessica Quintero, Leidy Ruiz, Adalberto Luna, Fernando Leon, Veronica Leon, Juan Cornejo, Denise Espino, Cherie Lyons, Daniela Ochoa and Rodolfo Garcia for their inspiring first-place finish at the World Affairs Challenge at the University of Denver on Saturday, March 9. This group of Rifle High School students knocked the socks off the statewide competition. Rifle High School Spanish teacher Maria Carrion-Kozak is the club’s sponsor, and Kim Goossens lent her considerable support to the award-winning team. Way to go, Bears!
