Happy Monday Younger Kid Families,
This week marks the beginning of our newest Topic Unit which is the Maya, Inca, and Aztec cultures. We will be introducing the ideas of ancient cultures and map skills this week! The following weeks will be a deep dive into these cultures and what makes them unique.
We are all looking forward to getting a chance to chat about your kids these upcoming Fridays! Like always, we will be preparing notes for our conference, but this year we may be adding information brought up in our conference. Please plan on receiving your copy of the conference note in the days following our discussion. During these conferences we will be talking about the student’s growth in, and SMART goals for, all academic areas, social skills and study habits. If there is anything in particular that you want to focus on, please let us know in a quick email beforehand.
Because of Parent Teacher Conferences, be sure to remember that there will be no school on October 15th or 22nd. The following Friday, October 29th, will be our Halloween party!
Another thing to look forward to is Rivendell School receiving new roofing! Because of this, the north side of the parking lot will be closed Friday, October 15th. On October 15th, the north entrance will serve as both an entrance and exit. See the attached map for directions on how to navigate the parking lot for the 15th only.
From October 16th to October 24th, the traffic flow will be as usual, but you will not be able to park in the north parking lot. The entrance and exit will be normal. Please use the parking spaces on the east side during those weeks.
