Younger Kids News
Monday, May 7, 2018
Hello parents and happy May!
With the last three weeks of school comes a jam-packed schedule! Please continue to follow our weekly newsletters for important dates and times. There are a lot of special events happening for students and families. We don’t want anyone to miss out!
Today is “Promotion Day” here at Rivendell. For First Graders, this meant a full morning of visiting Middle Kids to get excited about what’s to come in the Fall. For preschoolers, it was a chance to spend a few hours with Younger Kids doing a work session, and having snack and outside break with their future peers. For our current Pre-K and Kindergarten students, it was an opportunity to set a great example for our visiting friends and have a glimpse at the new leadership roles that they will fill next year.
Each classroom has its very own caterpillars that have been going through metamorphosis! Students have been watching with excitement as they see the insect life cycle play out before them. In our topic work this week, we will be learning more about butterflies.
This Saturday (May 12th) from 9-11:30 is the Younger Kids Rivendell in the Community event. We hope your family can join us in sporting our purple shirts as we explore Spring Creek Gardens.
*IMPORTANT* upcoming dates:
Monday, May 21 – Rivendell Spring Program from 6:00 – 7:30. Our Spring Program will take place at Griffin Concert Hall at the University Center for the Arts, formerly Fort Collins High School. Your child has been working all year on songs to perform on this evening. We hope you all can attend this festive Rivendell Tradition.
Tuesday, May 22 – Author’s Celebration from 8:00 – 9:00. Plan to come a little bit early or stay a little bit late as you drop off your child on this day. We will have breakfast treats, coffee, and amazing work that your child has completed this year. The centerpiece of this work is your child’s portfolio which we have been assembling from various pieces throughout the year.
Thank you for help in keeping up with the hustle and bustle of the end of the school year!
Seth, Annie, and Rachael
