Letter from our Principal
Dear Thunderbird Families,
It's hard to believe we're halfway
through the school year. It continues to be a joy to help our students
to maximize their academic and personal growth. As we head into third
quarter, we will continue to increase our expectations of students by
asking them to think at higher levels, consider deeper ideas, and work
on more rigorous assignments. At the same time, know we will support
our students to do so and encourage them along the way.
Registration for next year is just
around the corner. Cedarcrest High School will be hosting its 8th grade
parent night on Tuesday, February 12th from 6:30-8 pm in the CHS
theater. Cedarcrest counselors will discuss registration in our 8th
grade science classes on February 13th and 14th. Tolt counselors will
distribute registration materials in our 6th and 7th grade science
classes on February 20th and 21st. Registrations forms will require a
parent/guardian signature and are due the following week when Tolt
counselors will return to classes to help students enter their selected
electives into Skyward. Also, placement letters for next year's
language arts and math classes at Tolt will be mailed after mid-winter
break, which is earlier than in previous years.
Thanks to several organizations, we
have increased the number of AEDs on our campus from one to four. In
addition to the AED in our main office, we now have AEDs in our LRC
(donated by the Duvall Police Department), by our track (donated by
Eastside Fire & Rescue) and in our gym (purchased by our ASB). We
are grateful we are now better equipped should we have a
life-threatening emergency on our campus.
There are so many wonderful things
happening at Tolt. Thank you for sharing your children with us and
allowing us to teach, influence, challenge, and inspire them as they
grow into young adults with the passion and skills to make a positive
difference in our community.
Amie Karkainen, Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians:
I want to thank you for all you do to support our students. I
appreciate the support and volunteer time you commit towards making
Every two years, we work with the Center for Educational Effectiveness
("CEE") to survey parents/guardians, students and staff about
our schools, departments, and district. The information assists us in
improvement efforts, grant funding, and the planning of professional
learning at all levels.
We are asking that you take a few minutes to provide us information by
completing this very important survey. The survey will take
approximately 10 minutes to complete and will close on February 15.
The Riverview School District thanks you in advance for participation
in this year's survey. Your insights and perspectives help us celebrate
our successes, as well as guide improvement efforts in our district.
Dr. Anthony L. Smith
Riverview School District

Tolt Middle School Academic Program &
Multi-Age Program Application Process
Monday, March 7th,
2019, 7:30PM in Room E-505
accepted from January 28th through March 18th, 2019.
Applications can be
turned in to Tolt Middle School office, or to Jeff Cornish (email@example.com).
received after the deadline will not be considered for placement.
When will I learn if my child has been
chosen for the Multi-Age Program?
All parents who apply are informed by direct mail by the
end of May. Parents of children who are not chosen will also receive a
letter at the same time.
How does the Waiting List work?
All applicants, who have met the deadline, are
automatically placed on it. In the event that a child leaves the
Multi-Age Program before the beginning of the new year, a name will be
pulled lottery-style from the qualifying names on the list of that
year's applicants. To keep our balance, we strive to replace students
with similar students. For example, if a seventh grade boy moves away
from our district, then a seventh grade boy would be selected from the
waiting list. If more than one qualifying applicant is on the list, in
this case a 7th grade boy, then the lottery system will be used.
We only use the Waiting List during the summer and through
the first week of the present new school year. It is school procedure
not to take kids out of their classes after the first week of school.
After the first week of school that Waiting List is eliminated.
