Dear Parents,

As we head into this final week before Winter Break, the excitement level among the kids is high! Keeping normal bedtime and morning routines amidst the holiday anticipation is a good idea to help your children smoothly navigate their school week.

We will finish our studies on Asia with Southeast Asia and the South Pacific Islands, with a focus on Cambodia and Indonesia. The kids will complete their Asian flag books and finish their Travel Journals of the Asian countries they have ‘visited’. This has been a fun unit and our classes have enjoyed learning about the differences and similarities of kids their age that live on the other side of the world.

We will also complete Author of the Month writings on our favorite Ezra Jack Keats books this week and we’ll have group storytime with Spellbinders storyteller, Polly Walters.

On Friday, school will end at 11:30 AM after our Rivendell Talent Show in the commons.

Parents are welcome to watch the show, which will begin at 9:00AM. Please note, if you choose to take your child home directly after the show, which you are welcome to do, please make sure we know that you are leaving with your child!

We hope you have a fabulous Winter Break with the perfect mix of celebration and relaxation!

Happy Holidays!

Annie, Seth, and Dylan
