Happy Monday Younger Kid Families,

What a wonderful first week back we had! It seems like after the break, the kids are excited, engaged, and ready to learn. We started our dive into Light and Sound last week and the students were ready to soak it up. Whether they were using prisms in Science and Engineering with Emily or leaning about how Light travels and Shadows in the classroom, the students love our hands on approach to the subjects. This week we will start talking about the difference between translucent, transparent, and opaque. We have more fun experiments in store! 

As many of you already know, the conference sign-up sheets have been posted for our mid-year conferences. These will be the last scheduled Parent-Teacher conferences this year, so be sure to find a time that works for you! 

This Friday at 8:30 there is a meeting for the RPA, or Rivendell Parents’ Association, in the commons. Please consider going if you would like to volunteer in the classroom, in the school, or help with larger events. It’s the time and consideration of the families that make Rivendell so wonderful! This is also where parents can give their input and feedback for the school. 

Finally, there will be no school next Monday, January 20th, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. There will also be no school Friday, January 31st, or Friday, February 14th, for Parent-Teacher conferences, 

Have a great week and as always, thank you for sharing your children with us!

Dylan, Annie, and Seth
