Dear Parents,

We have a short, fun and busy week ahead with Rivendell Has Heart week, Valentine’s Day and our last set of parent/teacher conferences on Friday!

It was fun to see kids and teachers dressed up all in one color for Crayon Day today, as part of Rivendell Has Heart week! Here’s a reminder on dressing for the rest of the week:

Tuesday – Sports Day – Wear your favorite sports team gear

Wednesday – Mismatch Day – Be creative and mix it up

Thursday – Rivendell Spirit Day – Rock your favorite Rivendell attire

We are also collecting donations for the Food Bank of Larimer County this week – there is a bin set up by the office to place your non-perishable donations in. Also, for Rivendell Has Heart week, Younger Kids will be decorating lunch bags to brighten the day for recipients of Meals on Wheels.

Valentine’s Day is sure to be a fun experience at Rivendell! Class lists were sent home in last week’s Friday Folders. If you choose to participate in giving valentines this year, please make sure that your child brings one in to give to every student in the class. Each child will have a Valentine’s Day bag set up in the classroom. Your child can distribute their valentines into the bags as soon as they bring them in. Our school-wide Valentine’s Day party will be on Thursday, February 13th. Students will read their valentines with their book partners from 2:15 to 2:35 and classroom parties will follow from 2:40 to 3:15.

We will continue our Westward Expansion unit with a look at Lewis and Clark this week. The kids will have to think about what they would bring if they were to journey across the country in a time before electronics. What would they bring to play with? What would they bring to wear? This should be a fun and enlightening exercise for them!

We look forward to our final set of Winter Conferences on Friday. It is always enjoyable to spend the day talking to you about how much your child has grown! Remember, there is no school on conference days!

Have a good week!

Annie, Seth, and Dylan
