Celebrating Riverview High School’s 60 years of Excellence!

It’s been 60 years since the first students entered the halls of RHS. Generations of Rams have graduated from Riverview and gone on to accomplish amazing things. Now we’re asking you to give back. 60 for Sixty is our year-long celebration of RHS’s excellence over the decades. The Riverview High School Foundation is raising $60,000 to celebrate the school’s 60th anniversary. Please make your $60 donation now (or $600 or $66, or $6). Any amount will make a difference.

Money raised from 60 for Sixty will go towards the Principal’s wish list.
