West Kindergarten Students Enjoy Roba's Trip.

Former students of Mr. Shawn Murphy's 4th grade class at Riverside Elementary West School displaying one of four informational plaques, which will soon be installed on the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority's river trail in Taylor. The information was learned by the students during the 2009-10 school year. Through an educational mini-grant sponsored by the L.H.V.A., the students created paragraphs telling the science and history of the river and its surroundings. Holding the sign is Natalie Sottile and Mackenzie Mickavicz. Standing left-to-right are Noah Skoranski, Matthew Yatzun, Jason Holman, Peyton Connor, Brooke Mickavicz, Jasmine Hamilton, and Shawn Murphy, Teacher.

Congratulations to our September Bus Students of the Month. Students were selected by their bus drivers. These students consistently follow bus rules.

Students in third grade at Riverside Elementary West became "volcanologists" as a part of their Science class.
  They studied the effects volcanoes have on the Earth's surface. Students in the class constructed volcanoes using clay and natural materials from the playground such as grass, leaves, and twigs. The students made their volcanoes erupt and observed changes to the Earth's surface as a result of the eruption..
