Dear Rivendell Families,

What Can You, as a Parent/Guardian, Do To Help Your School and Student?

1. Support for the Robotics Club
Kerry Browne is starting a robotic club. He has ordered one robot and is applying for a grant for another. The club will need some things to be built. He might also need tools and someone to help with fundraising. There will not be a lot of activity for a month or two.

Goal: Provide a strong foundation for the club‟s success through building equipment and developing resources.

Resources: There is money for materials. Parents of club members will likely be interested in helping.
Contact Doc Browne at if you would like to help out.

2. Spring Musical - "Hello Dolly!"
Anna Alden and Silas St. James will be running evening practices for about two weeks in the spring and there will be two or three evening performances.
Goals: Develop parent support for the spring musical:
A. Schedule parents to provide meals during evening rehearsals.
B. Schedule parents to monitor students during evening rehearsals
C. Organize concessions.
D. Increase ticket sales by using community list serves and other social media to advertise the musical in the community.
E. Play an instrument.
Resources: Parents of student actors and actresses.
Contact Anna Alden at or Silas St James at if you are able to help.

3. The Dartmouth Thayer School of Engineering Annual Open House,
Friday, April 19 from 5:30-8:00. There is no cost. Food is served. This is a wonderful event for all students, but especially those interested in science, engineering, computer technology, electronics and any sort of career related to building mechanical devices. http://engineering.dartmouth.edu/events/openhouse-2012/

Goal: Get at least 10 students, families, and several teachers to this event. Promote this event to the entire school.
Resources: We could get a bus or use school vans if we have enough students. (This would need to be planned well in advance as the event is over Spring Break.) We could see if science teachers would offer extra credit in science classes.
Contact Keri Gelenian at if you are interested

4. Baccalaureate
This pre-graduation event is run by parents of the graduating class. It is typically held at an area church on the Sunday before graduation. Contact Kathy Landgraf at for further information and to be connected with other parents interested in planning this event.

If you prefer, you can also call Nancy Murphy at 603-353-4321 x 124 to be connected with any of these staff members‟ voicemail.
