A Note About Paying Your Bill
On the 20th of each month, Rivermont mails invoices which include tuition (if you are on a monthly payment plan), lunch charges, and any other items charged to your school account. There are several payment options. You may mail a check to Rivermont, bring a check or cash to the Business Office (Marsha Field - main floor of the Mansion), or if your bank has an online bill pay option, you can have them send payment to Rivermont directly. Please avoid dropping payments off at the reception desks or with classroom teachers. If you have questions about your bill, please contact Marsha Field at email@example.com or (563) 359-1366.
Parents are the first and primary educators of their children. Rivermont Collegiate seeks to work in partnership with parents as their children progress through formal schooling. Studies show that students experience greater academic success and personal satisfaction when their parents are active participants in their education. Reading to your child, showing an interest in schoolwork, fostering good work habits, and demonstrating a commitment to life-long learning show your child that you are committed to and value education. Parents are encouraged to become involved in the life of the School through volunteerism and philanthropy.
Rivermont Collegiate expects its students, faculty, staff, and administrators to follow the rules and regulations of the School both in spirit and in word. The School also expects parents to recognize and respect them as well. Courtesy and civility are a vital to the development and maintenance of a healthy school community. Parents have a contractual relationship with School, but more importantly they set an example to our students. Rivermont therefore places great emphasis on comportment of all the members of the school community, including parents and families.
Parents and independent schools work together to create and sustain effective partnerships. Rivermont endorses the following principles of good practice as promoted by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
All parents and guardians of Rivermont Collegiate students are members of the Parents’ Council. The Parents’ Council, which meets on a regularly scheduled basis, plans events, raises money, and generally supports the Rivermont academic program. Volunteer opportunities are always available. Parents’ Council officers are listed in the Directory.
