last update April 13, 2020
Blue Envelopes are a special Riverwood tradition, especially this year! It’s an opportunity for relatives, friends, teachers, coaches, clergy, and anyone special to honor your graduate by writing a note of congratulations and good wishes.
These letters of congratulations and encouragement are
collected and given to each Senior in a big blue envelope typically during Senior Clearance. We are exploring alternate
ways to deliver the envelopes pending notification from the school as to how Senior Clearance will be handled this year.
For this reason, we have moved the deadline to Friday, May 1. Please continue to mail tributes to Riverwood and PTSA reps will collect them from the administration. Send to:
Riverwood International Charter School

Important News for Seniors from the Counseling Center
Update College Acceptances and Scholarship Offers
Seniors, remember to let Mrs. Garber know about ALL college acceptances and scholarship offers received -- even from schools you do not plan to attend. Check the College Acceptances map on the bulletin board outside the Counseling Center to see where members of the Class of 2020 are being accepted.
Turning Down a College Acceptance Offer?
Seniors, please be courteous and officially go on record as turning down an acceptance offer from a college. This allows the college to use its waiting list or accept other applicants.
Going to College? Here’s a To-Do List
*Look at financial aid award letter to determine the family's financial contribution
*Pay college deposit, if required for enrollment and/or housing
*Sign up for Orientation
*Submit Verification of Lawful Presence, if required
*Submit immunization record
*Request final transcript to be sent to college (see below)*
Transcript Requests for Graduating Seniors
Most students will use Parchment to request final transcripts. Remember to use the "Hold for Grades" option
For students who applied to a school using the Common Application, please request the final transcript through your counselor. The counselor will upload the transcript directly to the Common App.
