From Our Principal
“At Riverwatch Middle School, we strive to provide a welcoming environment that supports students to build a belief in their own ability to be successful, teaches them how to balance responsibilities, and guides them through challenges so that they develop resilience. In this endeavor, we find that our partnership with our families is a most vital piece. Our PTSO is critical to this partnership as they create opportunities for community connection. I urge you to consider joining our PTSO in support of all that we do to make Riverwatch a wonderful place to grow and learn.“
Our Upcoming Events & Activities
Did you know that many of our school enhancements, extra programming, teacher grants and student events are funded via sponsorships and partner agreements from local businesses? Without our Panther Community Sponsors, many of the much-needed improvements over the years, such as the enhancements to our Media Center, creating an Outdoor Classroom, and upgrading school technology, would not have been possible. We are so grateful for our Panther Community Sponsor’s support as they help to enrich our students’ educational experience. You can help make a difference too!
