Riviera Roundup: a Message From Riviera Elementary Principal, Christie Forshey

Riviera Elementary School Recognized Two Students From Each Class for the Character Counts All Pillar Awards at a Ceremony on May 23rd

Here is a picture of our 5th-grade recipients!  The students selected for the All Pillar Award exemplify the pillars of citizenship, respect, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, and responsibility. Parents, student body and Riviera staff were all present at the awards ceremony. 

To date, Igor Nastaskin has donated $41,000 to support the Riviera Character Counts Program over the last 17 years. Each year, the school is able to provide a school-wide Character Counts assembly and student incentives for the school’s Character Counts Program.

Each month, individual pillar awards and teacher choice awards are given.  Riviera’s 583 students earn Super Stars and incentives in a tiered system of reinforcement for being responsible, respectful, safe, present and for being a friend to others. 

A student store certificate, shout-outs over the loudspeaker, lunch with the Principal at Rocketship Park, extra recess, Character Counts T-shirts, and trips to the office prize box are a few of the coveted Super Star incentives that students work towards receiving!
