SummerScapes Updates

Plans for SummerScapes continue to progress. Although our plans not totally set in stone, we did want to keep our families updated.

Mornings for grades 1-3 will be themed based with teachers such as Mrs. Fritchie, Mrs. Duval, Miss Rice and Mrs. Sobetzer. Mrs. McGowan, Mrs. Martel and Mrs. Cole will be sharing their time between the youngers and the elders.
Afternoons for the youngers will be fun! We’ve got sprinklers, hoses, outside games, maker space and swim lessons on our agenda.

Grades 4-6 will also have engaging mornings with Mr. Reichert and Ms. Sobetzer, with sprinkles of Mrs. McGowan and Mrs. Martel and other guest teachers.

For the olders afternoon workshops will consist of Potions and Lotions, tennis, music and theater, jewelry making, PE with Miss Otis, swim lessons at Indian Pond, Farm to Table and much more!

Sunscreen, bathing suits, and towels will be a must! Don’t forget to sign up!

We would like to invite you to meet two more candidates for the Rivendell elementary principal jobs Wednesday, May 22. The forum will take place from 5:30 – 6:30 pm in the library at Westshire Elementary School. Each candidate will have an opportunity to speak for 10-15 minutes and then answer questions. We strongly encourage you to participate in this forum and submit feedback for the committee to consider. There will be childcare and pizza available for kids – out on the playground if the weather is good.

We hope to see you and welcome your participation and feedback.
