|Alumni Hit the Greens for Tuition Assistance|
More than 150 Rivers alumni and friends teed off at two simultaneous tournaments at Charter Oak Country Club and Stow Acres Country Club last Monday for the 13th Annual Rivers School Golf Tournament to Benefit Financial Aid. Aside from serving as an opportunity to connect with friends and enjoy a gorgeous spring day on the links, the tournament raised more than $90,000 toward tuition assistance for deserving students to attend Rivers.
|Arts, Music, & Clubs Thrive in Spring 2013|
There was no shortage of success for Rivers as the weather warmed and the summer drew near in 2013. The art, music, and debate programs were all especially impressive this spring.
|Students Gain Wisdom, Friendship through Sages & Seekers Program|
Once a week, for eight weeks this spring, 24 of Mary Mertsch’s sophomore English students spent the afternoon with a group of senior citizens. It wasn’t community service, and it isn’t a graduation requirement. It’s just an opportunity for high school students to seek sage advice.
|Rivers Students RISE to the Occasion with Community Service|
Every year, the sophomores at The Rivers School brainstorm a series of community service initiatives and spend the spring putting their own ideas into action. It’s a growing tradition that is still in its infancy and continues to undergo changes and improvements, year by year.
