Parents, are you coming to the Casino Royale?! The spring fundraiser is an amazing night filled with community, games, and raising funds for Rivendell School. This year the Spring Fundraiser will be held at the Elizabeth Hotel in Old Town Fort Collins. Each ticket purchased comes with 100 chips to use while playing games such as black jack, poker, roulette, and craps. There will be dealers on hand to guide the games (for those that don’t have experience with casino games). There will also be a wide variety of silent auction items. Please see the following list for a sampling of silent auction items. Tickets can be purchased online or at the front table in the entryway. https://www.rivendell-school.org/spring-event/ Please let your classroom teacher know if you plan to attend the Spring Fundraiser.

Colonial America Studies
The students in the preschool classrooms have been taking a few steps back in time. We have begun discussing Colonial America. The students have been using their skills to learn some Colonial American songs in music, working in collaborative games in PE, learning new games such as marbles, that many families did not have numerous possessions, and gaining an understanding of expectations of children both in the home and in the school house in Colonial American schools.
Over the course of our studies, we will be making our rice babies (using measuring skills as well as learning to sew), practice writing on chalkboards, and participating in a school wide hands-on experience with activities related to Colonial America.
