Activities and Organizations

Riverfield encourages students of all ages to participate in activities and organizations that interest them. Because of the flexibility we provide for our students, they are able to take part in many of these events and activities. The balance between school work, athletics, and other activities naturally teaches students how to manage their time wisely while encouraging them to pursue their interests.  While some events cater toward specific age/grade groups, there are a number of all-school activities and events made for the whole family.  They are:

  • Visiting Day - This November event is a way for our students to share their school with parents, grandparents, and family friends.  This special day provides visitors the opportunity to become familiar with Riverfield and to see students in a classroom setting. Student exhibitions and performances are often part of this occasion.

  • Homecoming - By hosting our annual basketball Homecoming, we encourage students and their families, alum, and the faculty to join together in Raven pride. This event is highlighted by a spirit week, pep rally, and Varsity basketball games.

  • CaféNight/Llamapalooza - These performances showcase the hard work and talent of the students in the Riverfield Rocks band program. Café Night takes place at the end of the first semester while Llamapalooza is held each spring. These family-friendly events bring the Riverfield community together for incredible concert experiences on campus.

  • RFA Auction – The year’s biggest fundraiser, this adults-only event is held in March and organized by the Riverfield Family Association.  The evening includes silent, live, and online auctions in addition to a delicious dinner, entertainment, and other games.  Parents are encouraged to attend as well as help find sponsors, auction items, and volunteer during the event. 

  • Legacy - An event unique to Riverfield, this fun fair with games, prizes, and food is coordinated and executed by the 8th grade class each May.  Funds raised are a “legacy” to help offset the cost of the following year’s Spring Museum Trip.
