Parents’ Council Sponsored Events

Parents’ Council sponsors a variety of events throughout the year that bring the entire Rivermont Community together. Browse the list below for more information on each event. In addition to these events, Parents’ Council also sponsors prom and an annual Middle School social activity.

Coffees

Coffee on the Circle – On the first day of school, parents are welcome to gather in the Carriage House courtyard for a cup of coffee and a small bite to eat after dropping off their student. Meet other parents, catch up with friends, and just enjoy the morning. If you can’t stay, please feel free to grab coffee to go.

Coffee in the Mansion – Parents gather to view holiday decorations in the Mansion and enjoy a festive cup of coffee and a small bite to eat after dropping off their student. Meet other parents, catch up with friends, and just enjoy the morning. If you can’t stay, please feel free to grab coffee to go.

Coffee in Becherer Hall – Parents gather in lower Becherer Hall/Atrium to enjoy a cup of coffee and a small bite to eat after dropping off their student. Meet other parents, catch up with friends, and just enjoy the morning. If you can’t stay, please feel free to grab coffee to go.

International Food Festival

The International Food Festival is a unique annual tradition that concludes International Week. This is a great opportunity for families to bring a dish that represents a country of their choice, sample new foods, and foster global awareness in our students. The event traditionally features music, cooking demonstrations, and international games. For more information, click here for Food Festival FAQ.

Pancake Tuesday

To celebrate Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday, parents gather in the morning to make a pancake lunch for students and faculty. Hidden inside each pancake is a surprise trinket that, according to legend, can predict the future. This long-standing Rivermont tradition is beloved by students.

Used Textbook Sale

At the end of every school year, you will have the opportunity to sell your used textbooks to other Rivermont families (while picking up a few bargains of your own). Rivermont issues a used book list each year, so it is clear which textbooks will be used again the following year and may be purchased from other parents.

Hospitality

Parents’ Council hosts refreshments for the Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day reception and the Commencement reception, as well as faculty breakfast during parent-teacher conferences and an annual Faculty and Staff Appreciation Luncheon.

Socials

Parents’ Council plans events to bring parents together and families together to enhance the Rivermont experience.
