WHAT:  Join us in celebrating your student's achievements and progress.  In recognition of Black History Month, many sites in Minneapolis Public Schools are hosting an African American Family Involvement Day on February 12th.  The district is also hosting a free family event that night at Roller Garden in St. Louis Park from 6-8pm.

At River Bend, we have families with students at other schools, so we will be moving our Family Day to March 1st.

Moving forward, we hope to celebrate cultures more frequently throughout the school year by holding several Family Days.  We look forward to seeing you!

WHEN: Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 7:30am - 1:15pm.  We invite you to stop in throughout the day, whatever time works best for you!
