    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.  Words can’t express my excitement for this year.   I think our theme says it all…..Growing Together, Learning Together! I think this is the perfect theme because we are welcoming new students, new families, new staff members, Pre K classes, a self- contained autism class, dual language, and opening a new building.  The new programs and growth allows Riverglades to expand our educational philosophy to more students and families.  Riverglades implements the educational philosophy of integrated thematic instruction. Learning is connected to real world experiences through the Florida Standards.  An enriched environment is created for students to explore and become risk takers. Our school wide positive behavior plan is based on Life Skills. Life Skills promote character traits to help students become responsible citizens. Riverglades is proud of our unique family atmosphere.  Bringing students, staff, parents, and community together to foster a love of learning. We are honored to offer so many new and exciting programs.  

    I look forward to an amazing school year filled with wonderful memories.  I hope you have the opportunity to meet the talented and dedicated teachers and staff that make Riverglades the best school in Broward County. I also wish you have a chance to see the wonderful activities PTA supports throughout the year to enhance Riverglades. 

    Looking forward to seeing you soon, 

    Mrs. Seltzer, Proud Principal
