    • River Dell Talks Safety

      A school can never be too prepared because you never know when something could happen. That was the consensus after a crisis response training that River Dell Elementary had for their staff on a teacher work day at the end of the year. Principal Chad Jewett participated in an active shooter scenario organized by Johnston County Public Schools in May for all administrators, and afterwards he wanted to share out this important information with his staff. He worked with JCPS officials and professionals from emergency services to be able to provide this for stakeholders, including parent volunteers, at River Dell.

    • Start with Hello Week Sept. 24-28

      Start With Hello Week is connected to the Sandy Hook Promise campaign. The Sandy Hook Promise is Youth Violence Prevention Program. This Week’s purpose is to promote the idea of inclusiveness schoolwide. It helps encourage the students to make connections with each other and include everyone and to “identify and help others who are showing signs of social isolation” (Sandy Hook Promise, 2018). This year our school is going to participate by focusing on a simple daily theme that encourages students to connect with each other and helps to strengthen the welcoming community for all students within our school. Themes will also be announced daily during the morning announcements next week. Feel free to get creative with different ideas/activities for students.
