Riverside Schools may be small, but we’re large in heart and pride.
Ours is a rural school district within a tri-community area that has deep roots and history along the Nishnabotna River.
Since 1993, when area schools combined to become Riverside, our communities have worked together to build a positive culture that stretches into our classrooms, out on the playing field, and throughout our STEM, fine arts, and other programs.
Let's show our Riverside PRIDE!
Through donations from individuals, families, and businesses, our school district is working to make the facility improvements we need to support a safe and high-quality environment for our students. With these improvements, we’re making a commitment to keep building the legacy of Riverside Schools.
These projects will be completed through a combination of school district funds, private donations, and foundation dollars.
We’re also grateful for the in-kind donations we receive, including materials and volunteer hours from our partners throughout the community.
No work will begin on these projects until we have 100 percent of the funds needed to move forward.
We’re taking a phased approach to these projects.
Completed in summer 2023, Phase 1 projects included a new Riverside welcome sign, a We R Riverside donor recognition wall, a digital marquee sign, parking lot improvements, landscaping and repairs to the baseball and softball fields, and adding a retaining wall and landscaping for the safe room.
Phase 2 projects include replacing the natural grass with field turf on the football field, adding a visitor’s section to the football field, installing a well for irrigation, and building a satellite concession stand with restrooms for the baseball and softball fields.
We're almost there! Can you help us across the finish line?
The total estimated cost for Phases 1 and 2 is $1,150,000. So far, we’ve raised 65% of the funds needed!
All donation amounts are accepted and appreciated. No matter your donation amount, you’ll be making a real impact on our students, families, and community!
