Welcome students and families! We are committed to continuing to provide your student with social emotional supports during this challenging time. The social workers at Riverton have created a Google Classroom page called "Social Worker Corner" (please see below on how to access this resource) in order to provide resources for students and families. The page includes resources and information for families to take care of basic and emotional needs, ways to communicate with social workers directly, a virtual Calming Corner, other SEL tools such as mindfulness and Zones of Regulation activities, Second Step resources and activities, virtual recess activities, and even links for students to join virtual video lunch bunches! In order to access this page, devices will need to have Google Chrome downloaded.

Once you have set up a Google Account, please go to classroom.google.com, make sure you are logged in using your school Gmail account. If it is your first time using Google Classroom, select "Student" as your role, then hit "Get started." You can then select "Join a class." 

The code to join the "Social Worker Corner" is: ufhwb7s

 We hope that these resources are helpful to you and your family! If you have trouble accessing the Social Worker Corner, please reach out to your homeroom teacher or us at the following email addresses:

Sincerely,

Ms. G-W, Ms. Beam, and Ms. Hunter
