DENVILLE, NJ-- The Denville Board of Education meeting on April 27 was a packed house, full of proud parents and teachers from Riverview Elementary School. The Board of Education took time out to celebrate and honor the students involved in the Riverview Caring Kids Program. 

The Riverview Caring Kids program is designed to help engage children and help them develop social skills, positive interaction with peers, and make friends. Anne Rispoli, the ABA K-2 teacher at Riverview Elementary School noted happily that she sees the friendships made continue not just in the Caring Kids after school program, but outside the program as well.

"As a parent of a special needs child, when I first came to Riverview, I knew the importance of making a connection, having fun and having a friendship with other children. The friendships and bonds that are formed in room 26, aren't just staying in room 26. The relationships are also continuing at lunch, and during specials, and even out in the community," Rispoli told the packed library at Valleyview Middle School.

Riverview Elementary School Principal Nick Andreazza was also on hand at the Board of Education meeting, praising his students involved in the program. Andreazza told those in attendance at the meeting that he has never seen a group of kids more involved or with hearts of gold than the students who participate in the Caring Kids program. 

"The kids in the Riverview Caring Kids program embody good character, the exhibit good effort and you could not find better children who have better hearts of gold than those involved in the Riverview Caring Kids program," Andreazza said as he motioned to the children seated beside him. 

The students at the Board of Education meeting were all given certificates for their participation in the program. They also gave a presentation to the audience of some of the games and dances that they perform together with the students in the Caring Kids program. After a silly song and the matching dance were performed for the audience and the Board of Education members, the students and staff members involved with Caring Kids were met with a standing ovation from all those in attendance. 

Congratulations to the Riverview Elementary Caring Kids and the staff on a job well done.
