Principal ~ River View Junior High School

Hello River View Jr. High students and parents,

I'd like to welcome you to another school year and for taking the time to seek out information on our JH website.  The junior high is s great place to attend school.  We have a friendly staff that enjoys working with students.  The building is also a very nice learning envirnoment.  Though it opened in the fall of 1980, it is River View's "newest" building and is much different than the elementary school you attended.  I believe you will like this school.


To begin,I'd like to let you know that I believe students will rise to the level of expectations that is placed upon them.  The staff and I have high expectations of our students.  To meet those expectations all you have to do is do your best no matter what the task is.  All we will ask of you is to always give your best effort.  We cannot ask for more than that.  Another thing that I request of all my students is when you are in a situation where you must make a decison, always do the right thing.  I am confident that everyone who enters this building can figure out the difference between right and wrong.  By doing your best and doing the right thing, you will be successful in your time at the junior high.


We will let you get acclimated with the junior high by holding an Open House on Monday, August 20, 2018.  We want to invite the 7th grade students to join us from 5:00-5:45 PM and our 8th graders join us from 5:45-6:30 PM.  You will recieve your class schedule that evening and then can follow it to meet your teachers.  Also during the Open House we will have personnel availble if you'd like to make a payment on your lunch account or pick up information regrading free and reduced lunches.  If you are an 8th grader going on the trip to Washington D.C. on October 24-26 you will also be able to make a payment at that time.  You will find more information on the Open House and other RVJHS activities by checking us out on the River View Jr. High Facebook.


I'm looking forward to the 18/19 school year and hope you are too.  See you soon!


Mr. Olinger
