Success Week & Walk to School Day

Let’s move our feet so others can eat!

We are excited to be celebrating our annual Success Week September 30 – October 4. During PE, students will walk/run/jog to help the Henrico Christmas Mother food drive while promoting physical fitness and global citizenship. On Wednesday, October 2, we will be celebrating with kids all over the world by participating in Walk to School Day. If you live outside of a safe walking distance, meet up with other REES Eagles at Walgreens to walk to school. Our large group of families and faculty members will leave there at 7:05. Henrico County Police Officers will be along the route as well. In addition, our neighborhood Twin Hickory Starbucks is happily partnering  with REES to provide free coffee to all teachers, staff, volunteers, and parents participating in our National Walk to School Event. Let’s turn the charity into a good cause! Cash donations will be welcomed to support the REES PTA (suggested amount is $1.00 or more). We’ll have a table set up outside of the school.

To add even more excitement to Success Week, students are encouraged to participate in our Spirit Days.

  • Monday, Oct. 24: Wear our Rivers Edge spirit wear or our school colors (Blue, Silver, and White).

  • Tuesday, Oct. 25: Wear your team uniform (baseball, soccer, karate, dance, etc…school appropriate and no cleats, please!)

  • Wednesday, Oct. 26: Wear your favorite fitness clothes (sweat suits, jogging shoes, headbands, wristbands, etc.)

  • Thursday, Oct 27: Wear your favorite team’s jersey or shirt.

  • Friday, Oct 28: Wear your favorite team’s hat all day long!


We are excited about our fun week and appreciate all the hard work that Mr. Rutman put into planning this for us!
