Dear Senior and Senior Parents;

The senior year has begun and you should be thinking about your future plans. Will you be going to college or vocational school, the military? Start making plans for the ACT and SAT, cap and gown and senior pictures.  Parents, please make sure your senior has met with his/her guidance counselor and is enrolled in all of the required classes for graduation.  If your senior is eligible for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, check to see if he/she will meet the qualifications for the scholarship.  An additional course or SAT/ACT test scores might be needed. 

Prestige Portraits by Life Touch is proud to be the official senior photographer for Riverdale High School.  They will be taking Portraits for the Class of 2020.

You will be receiving a mailer in the next few weeks with information regarding sitting options and to schedule your appointment, please visit for details. Please sign up for an appointment, as this is your only chance to be photographed for inclusion in the yearbook!  You must get your photo taken by Prestige in order to be in the yearbook.  There is a sitting fee of $20.00.

 If you wish to place a senior ad in the yearbook, please visit the Jostens link for Purchasing a Senior Ad. Yearbooks will be available for purchase when school starts and the cost is $75.00 but prices will increase after December.

One of the first senior activities is ordering you caps and gowns and graduation announcements.  This will take place at the end of October. Details will follow at the beginning of the school year.  The payment will be collected in November, with the final deadline for ordering announcements sometime in December.  More specific dates will be announced in the fall.  The price of the cap and gown increases if ordered after February, 2020.  Announcements cannot be ordered after December.  Announcements will arrive in April and will be distributed as soon as possible.  Caps and gowns are distributed in May.

Another fall activity that takes place in November, is the class photo. There will be a panoramic picture of the senior class of 2020 taken in the gym, and another panoramic picture of them forming the “20” numbers on the football field.  The pictures will be available for $15.00 each, unless there is a price increase.

Second semester will be lots of fun.  There will be a senior class pool party and BBQ (no cost), Grad Bash, which is a special all-night function for seniors only at Universal Studios.  Seniors will ride to Orlando in chartered buses and return the following morning.  The estimated cost is around $160.  There will also be a senior breakfast (no cost) and yearbook signing party. Senior activities come to the end with Senior Awards Night, Baccalaureate and Graduation.

Seniors, if you will be attending High- Tech, LAMP, FSW, or FGCU, you will need to keep in contact with the senior class sponsor (Mrs. Gonzalez) to keep current on all of the specific dates of the activities.  In the fall, all seniors will be receiving a Senior Timeline of the events and a price list of possible expenditures.  The counselors at LAMP and High-Tech will have copies of all of the materials that will be distributed to the seniors.  Seniors attending FSW and FGCU will need to stop by the school and pick up that necessary paperwork.

Parents and seniors, there will be a Senior Timeline distributed   in the fall.  The Riverdale Community Corner Newsletter will also contain pertinent senior information in each issue, as well as the Riverdale High School Website. If you have any questions, please call us in August or any time throughout the year at 694-4141 or email Mrs. Gonzalez .


Respectfully yours,

Mrs. Gonzalez
