A Message from Mr. Donahoe, Principal
Parents, Families & Community Members:
It is unimaginable that it was this time last year when I found myself facing the prospect of returning to River Eves to take over the helm as the principal for the 2018-2019 school year. Yet, here I am one very short year later still standing. Wow! What an amazing run year one has been! I must admit that despite returning to the place that I hold nearest and dearest to my heart, I was terrified as I entered the new role and felt exceptionally vulnerable. However, what was evident from the very start was the amazing support and loving arms that were surrounding me, which created a strong sense of safety as I "took the plunge!" As I reflect on the past year, I possess a strong sense of humility and pride at what has been accomplished thanks to the combined efforts of our students, staff, parents, extended family members, and the community at-large. It is most certainly not a ME but a WE that makes our school the dynamic environment that it continues to be; River Eves is a place where students feel safe to be who they are as we strive to foster their individual academic and social/emotional well-being and development.
Over the course of this school year, our values have become more solidified and began to take shape in our daily "speak" and actions as a teaching staff. We have come to realize and embrace that our "hold tights" are and will continue to be:
- Focusing on providing all students with a learning environment that has quality instructional practices at its core.
- Emphasizing student and staff growth measures from academic and social/emotional standpoints.
- Being in the business of people! Therefore, we will continue to focus on establishing and developing positive working relationships with students, families and our colleagues.
I want to personally thank each and everyone of you for the support that you have offered me this year; It will never be taken for granted or forgotten on my part. The success of River Eves is due to the work of US ALL. Thanks so much! Enjoy the summer months; we look forward to seeing everyone again in August! Know that you are valued!

Summer Reading Resources
Don't let reading go by the wayside this summer!
Here are some resources to help your child continue reading all summer long.
What a phenomenal River Eves Field Day! The theme was "Once Upon a Field Day." All events were connected to children's literature. Coach Snyder continues to raise the bar higher and higher! Thank you for being amazing!
Congratulations to our retirees Helen Murphey (5th Grade Teacher) & Shari Khaki (Special Education Teacher)! We are so proud of and happy for you! Thank you for your service to our students, families, your colleagues, and the community at-large. You will be missed. Job well done!
The final River Eves STEM Day was a great success! This year, teachers devoted concentrated amounts of time to each step of the Engineering Design Model (EDM) during grade-level STEM Challenges. Our most recent STEM partner provided students with the opportunity to connect music to math! A huge shoutout goes to all parents and partners for the support this school year. We couldn't do this with you!
English Level 1 Graduation Day for our second language parents! So proud! Thank you to our very own Vilma Bass (Bilingual Parent Liaison) for setting the wheels in motion this school year! We are excited for next year and what is to come!
Thank you, Volunteers!
We value and appreciate the support of our River Eves volunteers. Notice everyone with their "Eagles Up!" What a phenomenal group!
