Parents, students, and friends! Don't miss the 2017 Rivendell Spring Program on May 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at the CSU University Center for the Arts, Griffin Hall (Old Fort Collins High School). Students should arrive at 5:45 and find their teachers, while parents and friends get seated in the auditorium.

Our 40th Fiesta is April 22, 2017 from 5:00-10:00 p.m. This event celebrates our 40th Anniversary and welcomes parents, teachers, family, friends and alumni to celebrate. We will also have a silent and live auction where you can help our school raise funds. It has been known as the Soiree for several years. You can purchase tickets (including ticket donations for teachers) or donate on-line. If you'd like your business to be a corporate sponsor for this event, use our corporate sponsor page or contact us. We hope to see you there!
What: All Older Kids, 3rd graders, and some 2nd graders, are busy preparing either a Science Investigation or an Engineering Design to display at the fair and we need volunteer judges!
Judges: How much time is involved? It's up to you! You can spend as little as 15 minutes judging one or two projects at drop-off or pick-up, or an hour, if you have more time to spare. It's totally flexible and up to you, and can be done any time between pick-up on Monday, March 6th through drop-off on Friday, March 10th. It's very rewarding and meaningful to our students to receive feedback from a broad audience, and it's pretty fun to see the creative and inventive projects concocted by our clever students! Judging forms can be picked up any time in the Commons. Once completed, they can be placed face down in front of the project so that it is easy to see which projects still need to be judged. What does a judging form look like? Check one out ahead of time here.
Where: Posters will be displayed in the commons/library on tables - so feel free to pick up a judging form and walk through with family, students, and siblings!
When: Begins at pick-up on Monday, March 6th and runs through drop-off on Friday, March 10th.
Summer enrichment classes are filling up fast! Rivendell offers so many amazing camps to choose from, don't miss out! You can find more information on our summer page HERE.
Great news! Rivendell has been selected to receive a $13,300.00 Innovation Station Fund grant from OtterCares, the charitable giving division of the OtterBox Company. Several teachers and Rivendell parent Carley McAbee wrote the grant proposal earlier this fall and were surprised by the team from OtterCares, who showed up during Group Sing earlier in November to present the award. The funds from this grant will be used to purchase new technology tools and hands-on learning materials to enhance our science, technology, art, music and regular classroom curricula. The students were very excited to learn about the new opportunities that will be coming their way soon!
Thanks so much to the OtterCares Foundation! We're excited to start building our Innovation Station!

Have you heard any of our new radio spots yet? They are airing right now on TRI102 and 99.9The Point FM. Be sure to listen for them, we had lots of kids help out with the voice over, so you might hear a familiar voice! Here they are as MP3's, if you don't get a chance to hear them live. A huge thanks to Jeff for all his hard work and audio recording/remastering expertise to make this idea a reality!
