Dear Rivermont Community,

College acceptance letters have been flying through cyberspace and snail mail for the past few weeks and our own seniors have been anxiously checking emails and mailboxes.  Last night, the long awaited Ivy acceptances were released.  You may have heard the shouts of joy or groans of disappointment reverberate across the country.  There were definitely shouts of joy from Rivermont households.

Congratulations to our seniors, Class of 2012 for their college acceptances to date!  Their hard work and dedication has been rewarded.  Kudos to our faculty for preparing our students to meet the challenges and expectations offered by colleges and universities across the country.
