Greetings from Gail

January 24, 2014

Rebecca Holcombe, Vermont's newmSecretary of State visited our early childhood program at Westshire Elementary School on January 8th. Rebecca was the Fairlee Principal at the time of Rivendell's inception and a driving force during the creation of our new school system.

Rebecca chose to visit our preschool classes because she knew of the quality early childhood program that Rivendell has offered for fourteen years now. Other schools in the state are trying to establish similar early childhood programs. We started with the one preschool classroom at Westshire, added a preschool classroom at Samuel Morey and this year expanded the program by adding another preschool classroom at Westshire.

All three teachers work closely and deliver similar preschool programs. Students from all four towns may enroll at the Westshire early childhood program. There are also extended hours at the Westshire program. They have supervision for our preschoolers starting at 7:30 until 5:30 p.m. If you are interested in learning more about the program, please call me at Samuel Morey or Tammy MacQueen at Westshire. It is worth visiting and seeing the exciting early learning adventures.

Did You Know?

Smoothies are coming! Students in all grades can enjoy fruit Smoothies for breakfast beginning Wednesday, February 5th and will continue each Wednesday for the entire month! Don't forget we have a great salad bar on Wednesdays too for 3rd thru 6th graders!

SME Parent Group

There will be a SME Parent Group meeting on January 27th at 6:00 p.m. in the SME library. The Parent Group is made up of parents from SME that would like to try and bring some additional enrichment activities to our school. They have sponsored the book swap and the equipment swap. Please consider joining us on January 27th. We NEED more parents. It is also a good way to share your ideas or ask questions about anything happening at SME. Think of it as a Principal's Tea—time to share what is on your mind with the principal. Hope to see you then!!
