At Rivendell we value knowing each other, and although we have our independent Forms and classes, we want to be a “whole,” connected school. One of the most enriching ways we accomplish this across all 9 grades is through our weekly Buddy time. This takes place every week following Assembly. Devoting time to Buddies provides opportunity for kids to get to know each other, accept each other, develop kindness and character, practice humility, practice engaging others in relationship, and learn to love and serve each other. It’s essential to the culture and spirit of our school...and both older and younger buddies LOVE it!
