Dear Parents and Guardians,

As Superintendent of the Rivendell Interstate School District, I wish to welcome you to the 2014-15 school year. Whether your child is just entering school, is now a senior, or is at any of the levels in between, I am confident he/she will have a year of growth, learning, and new experiences.

Rivendell is made up of teachers who care, are knowledgeable, have a variety of experiences, and are committed to effective teaching and learning. Teachers carefully focus each day on their students in ways that enable valuable education experiences. As a strong school community we strive to provide opportunities for students that result in positive accomplishments, success, and learning. To accomplish this we also appreciate the partnership and support that is needed from our extended community of families.

Of importance, Rivendell continues to proactively support the opportunities for professional development. These learning experiences continue to positively impact what occurs in the classroom and results in enhanced student outcomes. As we move forward we will continue to attend to and improve areas such as curriculum and instruction, school safety and security, and the maintenance of a quality-learning environment. We will also pay attention to communication and collaboration with each other and by extension to our school community of parents, guardians, and community members. We look forward to the collaboration with you in advocating and meeting the unique needs of your child/children.

We look forward to seeing you at school events and activities and welcome your support. We anticipate another busy and exciting year. Thank you for your continued involvement in the Rivendell school community.

Brenda L. Needham
