Message from Julie


Dear Rivendell Elementary Families,


Thank you to everyone who came to this week's coffee chats! I really enjoyed meeting and talking with so many of you! A special thanks to Mrs. Irene Otis for making the coffee and bringing the treats! We will be planning our next coffee chats for November in the afternoon - so those of you who were unable to come in the morning may have a better shot in the afternoons. We will also be planning a pizza dinner in January for people who need an evening time.

Don't miss out on this Thursday's Elementary Winter Activities Open House! Learn about our changes in Winter Activities for this year and have the ability to sign up your students.


RISD Elementary Winter Activities Open House

Both schools will meet at Samuel Morey on 10/18 at 6 to learn about all the cool options available to students for our Winter Sports program for the 2019 winter season.


FIrst Annual RISD Elementary Trunk or Treat

Both schools are invited to Westshire Elementary on 10/28 from 4:30-5:30 for a spooky good time.

We will be sending out sign ups to have a trunk/ bring your families in Friday folders.


Disability Awareness Day

11/14 (WES) 830-1130

11/19 (SME) 830-1230


IMPORTANT CHANGE

Harvest Luncheon is now 11/14 at WES instead of 11/13



If you are someone who enjoys social media, please consider "liking" our WES and SME Facebook pages. I am trying hard to post often about the exciting and cool things that go on at our schools. It is also a great place to see reminders about school events.

October is National Bullying Awareness Month

One of the things I have been spending my days on is bullying investigations. I feel strongly that all our students should feel safe and loved at school.


We will be focusing our coming days on prevention - "being kind". Check out this link for more information.
