Dear Rivendell Elementary Families,
Hi everyone! I hope you have had a lovely week. I really enjoyed the WES Bring Your Families to School Night. It has been awesome to meet so many supportive and wonderful families.
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.
Never fear if you aren't on Facebook, you will find most of the same announcements in our weekly newsletter.
Don't forget that our All School Hike is coming right up on 10/5. It is a new format with both elementary schools participating in the same hike. We will be beginning and ending at WES and are excited to play games and eat together!
Mrs. O'Hearn (with some generous donations) has been making Calming Corners in each room. We are trying to take the "stigma" off "taking a break" and are encouraging students to just take a breather in these comfortable spaces in each classroom. Thanks, Mrs. O'Hearn!
I hope you all enjoy your weekends!
Here is a great article to help explain lockdowns:
We will have our lockdowns at SME on Monday and WES on Tuesday - both at 1030. I like students to know in advance the first few times - I find this releives anxiety.
What's New for the 2018-2019 School Year
We will be focusing on consistency between the two schools. A copy of the handbook will be sent home, but you can also access it online.
