As one of the five schools comprising the Riveview Community School District, Memorial Elementary School shares in the long-standing community tradition of "Pirate Pride." In keeping with the "Pirate" theme, our district has adopted the mission statement represented by the acronym, "ARRGH!" While paying tribute to the spirit of Pirate Pride, this statement focuses on five tenets that pertain to the educational goals of our district, encompassing the purposeful and positive development of academic success, along with virtues associated with sustained growth in skills, talents, intellect, and impeccable character. Memorial Pirates are proud to be associated with the Riverview Pirate Community, and we strive to uphold the tradition of excellence that has been established through dedicated pursuit and attainment of these noble goals. As Riverview Community High School continues into their second half century, we join them in the grand celebration of all that makes "being a Pirate" such an honor. ARRGH!
Now that you know the Mission Statement that we teach to our children, please read the more formal Mission Statement that we, as a staff and educational community embrace as we work toward standards of excellence in our district and in our school:
"Our mission at Riverview Community School District is to successfully educate all students so that they will be capable of functioning in society, earning an income, and becoming tomorrow's leaders and responsible adults by embracing the following principles:
Academics, Responsibility, Respect, Growth, Honor---ARRGH!"
