Spirit Night – Join the Fun!

Thursday, August 24th – 4-8pm

***Downtown Fort Mill Location: 108 Springs Street, Fort Mill 29715*** Logo

Come out to Pelican’s SnoBalls right in downtown Fort Mill this Thursday evening to join your Riverview friends for our first Spirit Night of this year!

What is a Spirit Night?

Spirit Nights are an awesome opportunity for local businesses to generously donate a portion of that night’s sales to our school! It’s also an excellent way for Riverview families to join together, meet new friends and support both the school and local businesses. The more folks that visit, the more funds we raise for our school!

Schedule a playdate at Pelican’s SnoBalls for this Thursday, August 24th between 4-8pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

Spirit Rock

Spirit Rock — Newer and Easier Reservations!

**Click here to reserve the Spirit Rock online!**

What is a Spirit Rock?

A Spirit Rock is a wonderful way to publicize birthdays, accomplishments, celebrations, upcoming school events, well-wishes or congratulatory messages by using your creativity and a bit of paint to decorate the rock in front of our school! It is also a fundraiser! Money raised from the Spirit Rock goes towards supporting the various school activities and school projects hosted by your PTO.

How do I paint the Spirit Rock?

Either at Meet The Teacher or online thereafter, reserve and pay for your day! Your day will begin at 4pm the day prior to allow you time to paint the rock. Spray paint tends to work best and dry the quickest. Expect to use at least two cans of spray paint for the base coat. Be sure to bring your own supplies and clean up the area after you’ve finished. You can access the guidelines here. The next morning all of RVES will get to enjoy the latest creation!

See some examples below:
