Principal - Laura Malkovich

Hello!  My name is Laura Malkovich and I am the new Principal.  I’d like to start by telling you a bit about myself.  I was born in Buffalo, New York.  My dad was a Signal Officer in the U.S Army. I am the oldest of four children.  I also am a wife and a mother of four children ages 28-17 and 2 grandchildren (5 and 1 years old).  I love hiking, camping and boating.  I started my career as a mom, and I entered the education field in 1994.  I have taught preschool and elementary school, coached teachers, and have 1 year of previous educational administrative experience.  I truly believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher.  I believe that all children can learn and reach their highest potential, and that it is our job as parents to “come along side” of you to make that happen.  I am truly excited to be part of the RES family.  I will be asking for parents and community members to join our team in helping RES and all students reach their potential.  Please consider joining our Parent Advisory Council and/or any of our other committees that convene throughout the year.  Also, feel free to contact us throughout the year with questions, comments, or ideas.  We are all in this together.  Let’s watch our Hawks fly!

Dean - Eric Clifford

Hi there, my name is Eric Clifford and I am the Dean of Students at Riverview Elementary School.  I am a native Nevadan and will be starting my 8th year in education this Fall. In December, I will be adding a Mrs. Clifford to my life, as I will be marrying my Fiance’, Heather.  In my spare time, I enjoy hunting fishing, traveling, reading, cooking, and spending time with my two German Shorthaired pointers, Addie and Tillie. I am also a big San Francisco Giants and Green Bay Packers fan!  I am very excited to be the Dean at Riverview this year, and look forward to meeting all of you as we work toward our goal of growing academically and as community members!

Welcome to Riverview Elementary School!

We are a school near Dayton, Nevada that houses 480 prekindergarten through 6th grade students. Riverview is a Title I school.

Our vision and values at Riverview are to:

​1) create a safe, mutually respectful, and nurturing environment where students feel comfortable taking risks and work toward becoming successful learners and contributing citizens;

2) provide positive experiences and promote diversity and uniqueness to ensure students will leave with skills to be enthusiastic lifelong learners. Our staff have worked at integrating our curriculum so that students can demonstrate their learning in a hands on project based learning environment (PBL). We are interested in the well being of the whole child and teach lessons that incorporate the social and emotional learning, as well as incorporating the arts into our school.

All staff members excel at working as a team through grade-level planning and collaboration of curriculum, ideas, and strategies that challenge and excite our children. In addition, all classrooms have a prometheon board (interactive white board) which allows our students a multitude of technological experiences from the very beginning of their education. Our classrooms also incorporate the use of ipads and laptops for use with curriculum as well.

For continuity in teaching appropriate conduct, the entire school shares the same rules with PBIS: “Be safe, Be responsible, and Be respectful”. Classes are rewarded tokens for following these school rules, and class-wide and school-wide celebrations are held when token goals are met.

Most importantly, at Riverview Elementary we strive to challenge and inspire our students to do their best in all that they do, and be life long learners. It is an honor and privilege to be working with these children who are our future.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at 246-6170.
