at Rivendell Academy has been POSTPONED (tentative date May 5, 2020).

Greetings from Gail

March 7, 2014

Our New England Common Assessment state test (NECAP) scores are in. Here is how we did at Samuel Morey. The test is given to students in grades 3-6.


  • 3rd Grade: 81% met or exceeded the standard
  • 4th Grade 65% met or exceeded the standard
  • 5th Grade 54% met or exceeded the standard
  • 6th Grade 86% met or exceeded the standard


  • 3rd Grade: 75% met or exceeded the standard
  • 4th Grade 75% met or exceeded the standard
  • 5th Grade 73% met or exceeded the standard
  • 6th Grade 73% met or exceeded the standard


  • 5th Grade 36% met or exceeded the standard

It is important to know that we have very small N's or numbers/students in our classes. One or two students can greatly affect the overall percentage. Your child's individual test reports were sent home in the mail. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call your child's teacher.

These are teaching year scores. Therefore, Westshire fifth and sixth graders are reported with the Westshire scores. Writing is definitely an area of concern and we will examine that as a faculty. This is the final year the NECAP will be given for reading, writing and math as Vermont is transitioning to the Smarter Balance Assessment system.

The science NECAP will be given until 2016.

Rivendell offers free Developmental Preschool Screening On Friday, March 28, 2014, at the Westshire Elementary School, the Rivendell Early Childhood Program will be offering a free developmental preschool screening for children living in Vershire, West Fairlee, Fairlee, Vermont and Orford, New Hampshire, who are between the ages of 2.6 and 4.6 years old . Screenings for Samuel Morey preschoolers take place at Westshire Elementary School. This screening is not for children who are eligible for kindergarten next year. Screenings will be 45 minutes-1 hour. There will be two sessions at 8:30 and 10:00 AM. For a screening appointment please call Amy Longmoore at 802-333-4668. A family unable to attend on the screening day can ask about arranging for an appointment at a later date.

All parents are encouraged to make an appointment for their child to participate in the screening at least once during the preschool years. This screening is a play-based approach assessment for children in which the parents share and receive information about their child's development. Preschoolers who have delays in their development may be found to be eligible to receive educational services before they enter kindergarten.
