    Dear Riverglades Families,

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  I hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for an incredible school year.  This is an exciting year for the Riverglades staff because we are highlighting our school philosophy and school spirit.  Our theme unites together as a family – We are all part of the Gator family! We have some thrilling things planned including a name the mascot contest and creating a school song to build upon the long-standing traditions and create new traditions as we grow to meet the needs of our students and community.

    The mission and vision represent our dedication to the students to help them grow as Gators and have pride in being a Riverglades Gator!
