  • Mark Your Calendar for Work Day

    All Rivendell families are invited to come help prepare our building for the new school year. Our annual Building Work Day is August 24, from 9 am to 2:30 pm.  

  • Have you finished your summer packet?

    We hope you are having a lovely, relaxing summer!  But don't forget that summer packet and reading assignments.  If you've dropped yours in the pool or your dog used it for a chew toy, you can always print off a new one.  Visit the Summer Information page for links to the summer packets and reading assignments.

  • Give to Rivendell

    Rivendell operates on a modest budget, and because of God’s abundant provision, the generosity of many, and the wise and careful stewardship of our Board, faculty, and staff, we have covered our costs every year.  Rivendell School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Please consider giving to "The Next Chapter" Building Campaign or Annual Fund.  Online giving now available!

  • Handbook & Directory

    Need to learn or refresh your memory of our school practices and guidelines? Find our Handbook online on our Parents page.  Need to know the phone number, address, or email address of a fellow parent?  Directory information may be accessed anytime on our ParentsWeb.

  • Intercessors

    Parents gather in the the third floor teacher office every Wednesday at 9:00 am to pray for concerns within our community.  This ministry to our community may be the most significant (and most unappreciated) work we do on behalf of our children and our community.  Please make an effort to join, if even for only a few minutes.   All are welcome, and younger siblings are also welcome. 

  • Carpool Matters

    This year both pick-up and drop-off will be on Kentucky Street.  Enter the line by turning from Lee Highway onto Kensington Street.  Turn right onto 24th St. and right onto Kentucky St. Be sure to avoid blocking driveways and intersections during afternoon pick-up.  This is courteous to our neighbors and required by Arlington County Code. 

    Please review – and encourage whoever picks up your children to review – our Drop-off and Pick-up guidelines, linked on our Parents page of the website. We also encourage you to arrange a carpool, if possible, so take a look at the map of our families, also linked on our Parents page. And always, drive carefully in the neighborhood. We want to be good neighbors.
