REF Duvall 5K/10K Fun to Run in the SUN

On June 5, 2011, Riverview Education Foundation hosted the 6th annual Duvall 5K/10K Runs under sunny blue skies. It was a great morning of competition and camaraderie and REF wants to say "thank you!" to Duvall and the surrounding running communities for your participation. We also want to say "thanks!" to our amazing volunteers: this event was made possible by a dedicated group of course marshals, medical personnel, water station workers, registration volunteers, post-race food coordinators, sweeps, pacers, photographers, finish chute workers and clean up crew. Without them, there would simply be no race. They do a tremendous job!

Hats off to our wonderful sponsors as well! Please visit them here: We sure are grateful for their help and support – their generosity makes fundraising for health and wellness programming in the Riverview School District a reality. We sincerely appreciate their hands-on community involvement.

So a big thanks to all of you and save the date: we’ll see you at the start line in June 2012!

Happy running,

Paige Denison, Race Director

Dean Vergillo, Course Director

Creativity, passion and education grow hand in hand at PTSA Garden Center

  • Written by Leanne Christensen, RSD

In the spring of 2010 Stillwater PTSA members were working hard to make their dream of a school garden center into a reality.

They had chosen the ideal location on the school grounds and had the support and enthusiasm of teachers and Principal Amy Wright. With this support, Stillwater PTSA leader Serene Norris partnered with fellow PTSA parent and gardener extraordinaire, Stacy Walker, to create a detailed diagram that would help to illustrate their impassioned vision to the school district. Their time and planning proved to be a winning combination, as the district gave their approval 100 percent, and the Garden Center was begun.
