Younger Kids News
Monday, October 14, 2019
We enjoyed meeting with some of you last Friday for your child’s conference and look forward to meeting with the rest of you this Friday. It’s so nice to be able to spend that time together to talk with you about your child!
This week, we will continue our learning of The Senses, with a closer look at our sense of taste. We’ll learn about the tongue and how it works together with other senses to enable us to experience taste. The kids will be presented with two white ‘mystery’ substances (salt and sugar), that look similar but taste very different!
This Friday, October 18th, is Fun Fest!
5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at Rivendell School
Wear Costumes & Bring Neighbors & Friends for
Games, a Cake Walk, Dancing & Spooky Festive Fun!
For those of you who are new to Rivendell, we can’t wait for you and your child(ren) to experience the fun and for those of you who have been to a Fun Fest before, we hope you are as excited as we are! We still need donations of baked goods and stuffed animals for the cake walk. You are welcome to drop them off in the office on Thursday. Please feel free to share the Fun Fest postcards that were sent home in Friday Folders with friends and family outside of Rivendell. They are invited to the Fun Fest and there is information on the back about our next Rivendell Open House for families that may be interested in sending their children to Rivendell.
Our Halloween celebration is on October 31st, complete with a school-wide costume parade in the afternoon followed by classroom parties. Parent volunteers are welcome to attend. Please send your child to school with their labeled costume in a bag for them to change into after lunch. Please note, no weapons of any kind are permitted with costumes, even if they are a part of the character.
In more good news, Younger Kids met their Fun Run fundraising goal! We will be having our rewards celebration the day after Halloween, on Friday, November 1st. Kids are invited to wear their pajamas to school and bring a stuffie that day. We will watch the original Mary Poppins and have a movie treat too!
Have a fantastic week!
Annie, Seth and Dylan
