5:30 PM - 7:30 PM PTO Bubble Run
Second grade students participated in a Virtual Reality lesson taught my Mrs. Tammy Herman. Expeditions went underwater to view sea creatures. They tallied up animals and made a pictograph based on the information gathered. Traveling to 6 locations around the world, they encounterd a whale shark, angel fish, seals, butterfly fish, sea stars and sea turtles in their natural habits. It was a wonder experience! The excitement and awe in all students' faces were incredible. Thank you, Mrs. Tammy Hermann for bringing this lesson to our students!
Class lists are posted on Friday, August 26 and August 29 from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. On August 26, parents are welcome to visit and familiarize their student(s) with our campus. School hours are from 7:40 a.m. to 2:05 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Every Wednesday is staff collaboration day with students being released at 12:50 p.m. Students that ride the bus will arrive home early on Wednesdays (the same amount of time it usually takes to get home riding the bus on regular days). In addition, 4 minimum days are scheduled and the students are released at 11:15 a.m. This information is included in your parent packet that will accompany your child home on the first day of school. Also included in the packet are 3 forms for parents to complete, sign and return (Student Residency Questionnaire, Victoria Parent Handbook receipt and Riverside Unified School District "School Information for Students and Parents' Handbook and Mandatory Receipt for 2016-17 school year"). Please note the Mandatory Receipt includes check boxes allowing students to access the internet for educational purposes, media release and publishing student work. Explanations for each are included on the form . Parents and guardians, please make every effort to return the signature packet on the very next school day. Our Victoria PTO will include information in the packet about how parents/guardians can get involved and help make your school a better place for your children to learn. If each parent could only volunteer 2 hours a year, it would make a huge difference in the lives of your student.
Each month a Victoria newsletter is sent home with a wealth of information on upcoming events and tips/ideas to help your student be successful in school. You may also view our school website that contains an online Calendar of Events and other interesting information. The easiest way to access our website is to go to the Riverside Unified School District website, School Locator or you may use this link/address http://www.rusdlink.org/Domain/35.
For the safety and security of our students, please make it a priority to sign in and get a visitor badge in the office when you enter the campus during school hours. Equally important is to sign out when you leave. In the event of an earthquake, fire, disaster or emergency, the administration needs to know who is visiting our campus and if they are still present. Please do not sign out until you actually leave.
We look forward to meeting you on Back to School Night!
On June 8th, after 6th grade promotion, our staff and 6th grade students played a friendly game of softball.

discovered music as a fourth grader enrolled in the
elementary strings program at Victoria Elementary School.

RUSD is a District of Choice and welcomes families living outside RUSD boundaries to submit District of Choice transfer requests for the 2014-2015 school year between Nov. 1, 2013 and Jan 1, 2014.
As a designated District of Choice, any K-12 student may apply to attend Riverside schools, even if RUSD is not their home district. Per state law, a student's home district may not prevent District of Choice transfers into the Riverside Unified School District. The District of Choice option is available to any student who does not live within RUSD boundaries but is interested in attending RUSD schools for the 2014-2015 school year. Admission to the district through a District of Choice transfer does not guarantee students a place at their school of choice. However, every effort will be made to accommodate specific school requests.
Questions may be directed to the RUSD Pupil Services Department at 951- 352-1200.
