We have a Spirit Rock!!!

Spirit Rock1


What is a Spirit Rock?

A Spirit Rock is typically located in a highly-visible area. It is permanently placed in a grassy area, upon which people can use spray paint to write their message. A Spirit Rock is a wonderful way to publicize birthdays, accomplishments, celebrations, upcoming school events, well-wishes or congratulatory messages. The Painting of a Spirit Rock is one of many traditions that people participate in with their friends, children, and grandchildren. It is also a fundraiser! Money raised from the use of the Spirit Rock goes towards supporting your school’s PTO, school projects, various school organizations and local charities.

How did RVES get a Spirit Rock?

The 3 ton boulder was donated to RVES by Martin Marrietta which has several rock quarries in the Charlotte area. Heafner’s Towing and Recovery volunteer their services to transport the boulder from Charlotte to RVES. Finally, RVES parent, Joey Bray with United Rental, volunteered his time and equipment to lift the rock off of the hauler and position it on our property.

How can I paint the Rock?

If you would like to reserve a date to paint the rock , email the PTO at
The fee to reserve a day to paint the rock is $10.00.


Classroom Ready! Initiative

Classroom Ready is district-wide initiative that gets school supplies into the hands of students in need. The program is housed at Doby’s Bridge Elementary School but is available to all students in FMSD.  At this time, Classroom Ready has served close to 350 students and distributed over 10,000 supplies!  There are several opportunities now through September for new and returning volunteers.

Also, there is a meeting on SEPTEMBER 1 at 9am at DBES for those who are interested in helping make Classroom Ready a success throughout the year. Come and hear more about ongoing needs and volunteer positions. To learn more about Classroom Ready click the Sign-up Genius Button.



Time to Re-link your grocery store cards!

The Riverview PTO receives money back from Harris Teeter and points to redeem for supplies from BI-LO if you use your reward cards when you shop. These cards need to be re-linked every year for us to continue receiving benefits.  Find how to re-link on our Rebates page by clicking HERE.

If you have a Target Red Card, RVES can also get money back from your purchases.  If you have not already linked your Target Red Card you can also find how to do so on our Rebates page.
