  • 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!

  • Have you started on your summer packet?

    We hope you are having a lovely, relaxing summer!  But don't forget that summer packet and reading assignments.  You'll do best if you start early and work steadily on it over the course of the summer.  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.

  • Rivendell Annual Fund

    You can now give online to the Annual Fund through PayPal.  Please visit the Give to Rivendell page for the link.

  • 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.

  • Box Tops for Education

    One of the many ways Rivendell earns additional funds is through the Box Tops for Education program. Recent earnings have been more than $500! Please submit any cardboard Box Tops and Bonus Certificates in zip-lock bags to the Office. There are five ways to earn Box Tops:

    1. Cut out un-expired cardboard Box Tops on General Mills, Kleenex and Ziploc products, collect them in a Ziploc bag, and drop off at the Office. Get students involved in spotting them and cutting them out!

    2. Collect Bonus Box Tops certificates (include in Ziploc bag with regular Box Tops). Here’s where to find Bonus Certificates:

    • In stores during special promotions
    • On specially-marked packages
    • At checkout, printed on your receipt

    3. If you receive a 14-digit Bonus Box Tops code at checkout or on a package, redeem it at the following link to be added to Rivendell’s account (you will have to create an account the first time): Rivendell’s school ID is 583472.

    4. Download and use the “Box Tops Bonus App” when you purchase General Mills or other participating brand products.

    5. Link your Safeway “just for U” card to Rivendell in your account:

    Katherine Taylor is the coordinator for Rivendell. Please feel free to contact her at katherinetaylor05@ with any questions. Thank you!

  • 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.
