A Note From Dr. Compton
Dear Lions' Families;

I'd like to start out by recognizing Mr. Brian Wright, and our Riverwalk Academy Singers. On Saturday, they performed at the Carowinds' Festival of Music. Not only did I (and their parents) think they did a fantastic job, but the nationally known adjudicators did also. The students earned an "Excellent Rating" for their performance. You can view their performance by clicking here . Congratulations Mr. Wright and to his Riverwalk Academy Singers.
The main thing I appreciate about charter schools and school choice is that it puts parents in control over their child's education. With that being said, I recognize that 440 of you are making the choice to send your child(ren) to Riverwalk Academy. Because of that, I am sure that you'll agree with this statement: Riverwalk Academy has some amazing staff and teachers. On a side note, I'd also like to recognize that Riverwalk Academy has some amazing parents and families.

Because Riverwalk Academy has such amazing staff, I am asking for your assistance. As we begin closing out the school year, I'd like your help in recognizing our amazing teachers and showing them that they are appreciated.

f you feel that your child’s teacher went above and beyond this year in some specific way, please click on this link and fill out this short 3 question form letting us know how your child’s teacher made a difference. 

We will use your responses to create (and display) stories for our teachers. The teacher’s name and your child’s name will not be displayed on the board. Even though the display will be anonymous, it will show our teachers how much they are appreciated and how what they do every day makes an impact on their students. We will need all responses by Friday, the 27th.

I greatly appreciate your assistance in helping me show appreciation for our outstanding staff at Riverwalk Academy.
