Younger Kids News

Thank you all for your participation in our Fun Run last Friday! Even on a cold day, our Rivendell community turned out in full force to cheer on the kids as they ran and ran and ran…what a great job they all did! You should have received your child’s number with the final count of how many laps he/she ran so you can collect your pledges. If you haven’t seen it yet, double check your child’s Friday folder. Please turn in your child’s pledges by October 12th.
We are continuing our Oceans unit with a study of ocean food chains/webs. The kids have been enjoying learning about oceans and the creatures that live in them and have been working hard on their projects and writings!
Parent teacher conferences are scheduled for Friday, October 12th and Friday, October 19th. There are sign-up sheets outside of your child’s classroom door. Please sign up for a half hour time slot that will work for you. If the times posted don’t work for you, please let us know. We will be happy to find another day/time to meet with you. Although your child is welcome at most Rivendell occasions, parent teacher conferences are not a time to bring your child. This is a time for us to talk with you about your child’s progress without them present. If you need to bring your child along we can help to set her/him up with a toy to play with outside of the room while we meet. You may also sign them up for the Rivendell Enrichment Camp that day. We are looking forward to talking with you about your child!
The weather at this time of year is sure to be a mix of warm and cool temperatures. Remember, we go out to play in almost all weather, so please be sure to bring coats and jackets for your child. They will be much happier playing outside if they are comfortable!
Have a wonderful week,
Annie, Rachael and Seth
