Rivendell Older Kids

Monday, September 9

The older kid hike to Lory State Park was so much fun. Our kids had a great time working together to figure out problems in our team building games, and the hike was beautiful. We have a great group of kids and we’re excited to spend next Friday night with them here at school.

Friday is the older kids sleepover. Kids should arrive back at school at 6:30pm. The doors will not be open before then, as we will need some time to prepare our mega scavenger hunt! We are asking that students go home for a little between school and the sleepover, otherwise it is just such a long day for them. We will provide pizza for dinner. We will have the kids sleep in groups of 2-4 in tents in the Commons. Please let us know if you have a tent that we can use, and how many people can fit in it.  Everyone should bring pajamas, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a sleeping bag and pillow. A pad would be great as the floor is pretty hard. A stuffed animal, flashlight and boo kare also encouraged. We will eat dinner, play games, and watch a movie. If your child will not be coming, or needs to come late, please let us know. We will provide breakfast the next day and ask that you pick up your child by 8am. It should be a lot of fun!

This week we are starting vocabulary.  We will work on this during class time, but if students do not finish in the assigned time they will need to finish it for homework.  Students should study the words throughout the week ready for a quiz on Friday. We will also be adding math for homework on Tuesday this week.  We would like kids to work in their math workbooks for 20-25 minutes. If Tuesday is a hard day for your child to do math homework, please let us know and we can plan a different day for you.
