MARION — Riverview Elementary is currently the featured school on the Choose To Be Nice program's website!
 
Choose To Be Nice is a social enterprise dedicated to encouraging and inspiring kindness, through a comprehensive curriculum available to schools. Riverview is the first school in Indiana to implement this program!
 
The mission of Choose To Be Nice make the world a nicer, kinder place one individual, one interaction, one school, one company, and one community at a time. And it all starts with a simple promise:
 
"I promise to help spread kindness wherever and whenever possible. And to the very best of my ability, I’ll be nice to those with whom I come into contact on a daily basis."
