Dear IB Parents & IB Students; (Click here for PDF Version)

Summer Greetings!! The school year is five weeks away, here is important info.

Orientation dates are listed below. Please remember, in order to pick up your schedules, you need to submit a signed copy of the IB Honor Code. Also, please review the updated, 2016-17 IB Guidebook, which includes Academic Guidelines and IB Attendance Policy. 

Students please make sure you finish your summer assignments, as you will be expected to demonstrate completion once school starts. (Listed here on our web site) Relatedly, SENIORS, Extended Essays are due (2 copies & one flash drive) at the time of your schedule pick-up.

Remember, schedules are pretty packed – so any requests for changes will be very difficult to accommodate. And, in fact, it’s school policy not to approve requests for teacher or lunch changes. Do not purchase school supplies until after classes meet! A friendly reminder: the start of school brings understandable excitement, apprehension, etc.. Patience and open-mindedness are the keys to a successful opening….and to IB!

Open House for all Riverview parents is: Wednesday, Sept. 7, starting at 6 p.m., until 8 p.m. There is a mandatory Grade 12 Parent Meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 7th at 6 p.m. (RPAC) (the same night as Open House).

The IBPO Membership Drive has begun. Enclosed, please find enrollment forms. Please join: we need your support and assistance – opportunities for committees, etc,, are also available. Like us on Facebook RiverviewIB and consult this website regularly.

We are elated to welcome our new Principal, Dr. Paul Burns. We are most proud to announce that our May 2016 IB Exam Results have surpassed our own projections and the world averages (Again!). (Details will be posted here in the upcoming days.)

Congratulations to the entire Riverview IB community – we truly believe that our best days are still ahead of us!
