A Message from Riverview's new Superintendent

How you can help Riverview's new superintendent know what your goals and ideas are for Riverview.

I am sure most Riverview School District residents know we have a new superintendent, Mrs. Margaret DiNinno. She is VERY positive about our school district and wants to keep it going onward and upward in the right direction.

She has asked me to try and contact as many folks as I can, so, of course I thought PATCH might be a great vehicle. However, not everyone reads PATCH so I am asking you to forward the information to friends and neighbors. The following is from Mrs. DiNinno:

“I believe that communication, (and sometimes even over-communication) is needed in every organization so that every stakeholder impacted by the organization is aware of the vision, what is happening, and knows how he or she can play their part and use their unique talents to support the efforts of the group.

With this in mind, it would be so VERY helpful to me to have the Riverview School District readers of Plum-Oakmont PATCH respond to the following Superintendent Survey.  I am sincerely seeking every one's input and feedback in an effort to take the district to its next level of greatness.   The survey could be printed and dropped off at the central office in an envelope with my name on it OR it could be mailed to: Mrs. Margaret DiNinno, Central Office, 701 Tenth Street, Oakmont PA 15139.

Thanks Bob, for the added information. Hope folks take this seriously and do write their hopes, fears, and goals. Mrs. DiNinno seems sincere in her desire to communicate and work as a team.
