It is our pleasure to be a part of your child’s educational journey here at Rivendell. We are thankful that we have the opportunity to watch your children grow and learn, grateful to provide a safe and caring environment to help them learn, and blessed that we are surrounded by loving children and families.
In recent days we have been incredibly busy with our field trip, activities at school, art projects, and much more.
A huge thank you to all of our parent volunteers that came with us on our Field Trip. We had a wonderful time at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Students explored the dioramas, the prehistoric exhibit, and had the opportunity to watch Oceans, Blue Planet in 3-d. Many students were making connections to information they had learned during our topic units at school.
The students have been busy working on their handwriting skills while working on journal pages and their I am thankful writings. We have seen so much growth and development both in their recall and handwriting skills in just a few short months.
In art class the students have been working on several art projects in preparation for our Annual Rivendell Art Show. They have been using a variety of materials and implements to create their works of art, including portraits of Splat the Cat.
We will be sending home an “All About Me: Winter Traditions” project with your child today. We encourage you to take some time to work on these projects as a family. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about why or how their own families came about traditions during the winter months. The students will each be scheduled a certain day to share their creations with their classmates. Please note the date on your child’s instruction sheet.
Are you missing some reusable containers, winter jackets, headbands, etc.? Please take a moment to swing by the lost and found (located by the doors that lead to the playground). The lost and found has grown by leaps and bounds lately.
Wishing you all a fabulous Thanksgiving break. Safe travels to all who will be driving and flying. May your days be filled with amazing memories with family and friends.
