Rivendell Appoints New Principals

May 30, 2019
Dear Rivendell Community,
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Steven Lindemann as principal of Samuel Morey Elementary School and Timm Judas as principal of Westshire Elementary School effective July 1, 2019. Many thanks to all who helped with the search process.

The board decided at its April 4th meeting to return to the model of one principal dedicated to each school. The 13-person search committee was charged with finding two leaders to work as peers in making our schools the best they can be. The committee met with teachers, parents, and community members to identify what to look for in a candidate. Communication and interpersonal skills ranked high on the list, along with a demonstrated capacity to solve problems and build trust. School climate, behavior, and instructional leadership were also common themes. The committee looked through applications, conducted initial interviews, and set up a schedule for each of the finalists to spend a full day at the schools. This process played out over several weeks with the first two candidates visiting May 6th and the final two May 22nd. (If it feels like you’ve been waiting for a long time for an official announcement, you are right!) Reference checking started as soon as each finalist was identified. After each round of visits, the committee met to review feedback from teachers, staff, parents, community members and share what was learned from reference-checking. While some conversations took longer than others, the committee made the unanimous decision to recommend these two candidates to the school board. Read more...

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!
