Parent Involvement

The Riverhill School community reflects the direct involvement and personal interest Riverhill parents have in their children’s education. Parents participate in numerous areas of school life by being physically involved in projects at school and by donating funds to supplement and enhance the programs of the school. Parents are encouraged to participate in activities such as accompanying students on field trips, presenting special lessons in the classrooms, volunteering in the library, organizing Family Fun nights, and planning school-wide events like Field Day and the Riverhill Run.Riverhill Family Involvement

The Riverhill Association of Parents and Staff, RAPS, is comprised of all parents and staff of Riverhill. RAPS is instrumental in organizing and leading events such as Fall Festival, Spa Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, and major fundraising events like the Riverhill EXPO.

Funds raised by RAPS are donated back to the school and are used to update and improve areas around the campus and, of course, to enrich the academic programs of the school. Parent involvement is an integral part of Riverhill School.
