50th Anniversary Speeches, Eco Week and Back To School Information...Oh My!

Incoming 5th grader information

5th graders will be heading off to Pingree Park for Eco Week August 26th-August 28th. Please make sure to get your medication forms for Eco Week filled out and signed by your Physician this summer before school starts in August!   

If your student(s) need any medication for Eco week, please see the links below to print the forms needed. The Pingree form needs to be filled out for each medication you want your student to take.  For example, if your student is allergic to peanuts and needs epi-pen and Benadryl, you will need to fill out an Allergy action plan and two Pingree forms (one for Epi and one for Benadryl).

Riffenburgh celebrated 50 years!  What a great night that was! Many alumni showed up (staff and students), along with families with students attending Riffenburgh now.  :)  We were lucky enough to have some special guest speakers.  Our present Principal plus four of our past Principals (ncluding the principal who opened Riffenburgh!) and a long time teacher at Riffenburgh. Please see the links below to watch the speeches.
