Welcome to Riverside Elementary

Danvers Public Schools Mission: DPS is a dynamic community of independent learners dedicated to respect, responsibility, creativity and the pursuit of academic and personal excellence.

Danvers Public Schools Vision: In 2023, DPS is an inclusive community of learners that is respectful of individual differences, in which all students are valued for their unique strengths, talents, and challenges. A welcoming environment for students and families is evident and diversity is valued and celebrated. All students are fully engaged and invested in their learning. They demonstrate personal responsibility and are achieving to their maximum capability. They are skilled communicators and problem-solvers who engage in collaborative inquiry, make effective use of technology and apply their learning in authentic, real-life situations. Graduates of Danvers Public Schools leave the school system feeling confident and well prepared to continue their learning in the wide array of college and career options available to them. They go on to become productive, responsible, caring citizens of the global community and achieve their definition of success.

On behalf of Riverside School, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. We are a community of learners, both students and adults, who strive to be the best that we can be. We embrace and utilize all of the resources around us to become independent learners, as well as, kind and respectful people.

When you enter this loving school, consider yourself one of the special members of this extraordinary family!

Wishing you a successful school year.

Violetta Powers, Principal
