Teacher Inservice/No School for Students

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As my sixth year as Superintendent of the Rivendell Interstate School District begins, I am pleased to offer a welcome for the 2015-16 school year. I look forward to seeing the effort, caring and commitment that all of our teachers, staff and administration will make on behalf of your child(ren).

Our teachers bring to Rivendell both education and life experiences that support a vital learning environment. I know our students are fortunate to have the varied educational opportunities our schools make available to them. With effective teaching and learning, they will flourish, grow, and develop a wider and deeper knowledge. Quality instruction will support our students as they meet and use their learning potential.

I also know that our partnership with parents is important. We will be most successful in knowing and understanding your child when we have positive and open communication with you. We will work hard to communicate effectively and we appreciate the support you give us.

Both New Hampshire and Vermont are facing education financial challenges. Rivendell will continue to be diligent in the budget development process in order to meet student needs in a cost effective manner. We recognize, although small schools have many advantages and strengths, the small number of students can at times be financially troublesome.

As your child enters school you will find new teachers in each location. We are excited to be able to once again recruit talented, interesting and enthusiastic educators. Although we will miss those who have moved on to other opportunities, we expect the connections and instruction provided to your child will continue to be positive.

If your child is entering preschool, I offer a special welcome, as this is an exciting timeeven though it may be a little scary. If your child is a senior, it can also be an exciting but potentially stressful and scary time as the next chapter of life comes close. Whatever age and grade, my hope is that teaching and learning will flourish and both parents and educators will look back on the year and see lots of successful experiences and growth.

Enjoy the year!
Brenda L. Needham



Latest News


Beginning in fall 2015, RA students and teachers have Raptor.Space available. Through this site, students will access Moodle, which is our new platform for virtual classrooms and other digital resources. We anticipate this will grow to resemble the portals used by most colleges and many businesses.

SME Green-Up Day

August 23rd, 8-12
Students and Parents Needed!
Our inside is clean, bright and shiny but our outside is overgrown with weeds and the bushes need trimming.
Please come and help us ready our building for students first day of school on Monday, August 24th. Bring rakes, shovels, clippers, trimmers and any other garden tools you can. We can also use a wheel barrel or two!

Summer Reading

Teachers have been creating some new and exciting summer reading assignments for students this year. Kindergarten through fourth grade students all have a summer reading activity card. Reading during the summer is essential to maintain students' reading progress and not fall behind. Please help us by making sure your child completes the assignment and returns the summer reading sheet to school in the fall. We are expecting 100% participation from all grades.
