Thankful for Riverside! This Thanksgiving, please help us support the staff at Riverside by donating turkeys or money contributions to the PTA. Our turkey giveaway was very popular with our staff last year. It is more important than ever to show love and appreciation to those who drive school buses, provide a safe and clean environment at Riverside, and otherwise support our children in school! We can let them know how much they are appreciated, but we need your help. If you are bringing a turkey, we ask you to deliver it Tuesday, November 21st by 8am. If you are sending in money, please donate by Monday, November 20th. Any extra donations will go to PTA to support its many teacher and staff appreciation efforts throughout the year! Thank you in advance for your generosity! Link to donate $ - https://tinyurl.com/GiveTreasure
