Costume Closet Organizing

Many of you know that alumni parent and faculty spouse Rachel Gilbert has managed the chaos of our costume closet ("behind the trapezoidal door") for many years, along with leading our middle school costuming elective. Because of her singular efforts our students have been able to add creative flair and learn some textile arts as part of their dramatic endeavors. Thank you, Rachel!

Parents Jenna Heinrich (3rd grader Clint and 6th grader Nick) and Tricia Bunnell (1st grader Zoe and 4th grader Sofia) are ready to take over her leadership, and for that we are also so grateful! In order to set them up for success, we'd like to have a costume-organizing chore-party on Saturday, December 1, from 9:30 am -12:30 pm. We will let them take the lead and put us to work folding, sorting, and labeling so that they can make good use of the space and resources moving forward. We hope that a few parents will join in the fun, please let Nelia know if you plan to help out.

Dia De Los Muertos Celebrations

In Mexican culture, the end of October is a time to celebrate ancestors, loved ones who have passed on and whose memories we strive to keep alive. The team of Riverside Spanish teachers will try to incorporate that tradition into K-8th grade Spanish classes over coming weeks. October 30-November 1 we will create and dispaly an "ofrenda" (offering) in the Solarium. We ask that all students bring in a hard copy of a photo of a deceased family member to share.

Race Back to School

The Kingdom Trail Association is introducing Race Back to School, a walk-run-bike-a-thon organized by local schools, on August 19, 2018.  This laid back competition takes place on designated trails where participants race to accumulate the most points within a two-hour time span.  Points are awarded for laps and for fun stations – stops along the way providing specific challenges including anything from physical fitness tests to face-painting.

Families, individuals and teams of all ages are invited to participate.  The course offers a focus on endurance challenges rather than technical difficulty, in order to encourage walkers, runners and bikers of all ability levels.   And the Fun Stations give slower racers the opportunity to rack up high points and stay in the running for a podium spot.  Racers can also fundraise for specific causes by turning points into pledges.

Following the race, there will be music by the Bald Mountain Boys, food and prizes for the top point earners, and general revelry and good times for all.

Kingdom Trails, who is hosting the event with this year’s organizing school (the organizing entity will rotate as school's express interest) The Riverside School, wants this fun race to grow in the coming years, drawing in Northeast Kingdom elementary and middle schools, to become an end-of-summer celebration of community spirit.  “There are very few events where we come together as a community of schools,” says Lilias Ide, Director of Marketing at Kingdom Trails.  “We’d love this to be the time and place where we share and get to meet each other.”

The competition runs from 9-11AM on the 19th, with check-in at 8AM in the field below the Wildflower Inn on Darling Hill in Lyndonville.  

Participants must pre-register online.  There will be no on site race-day registration. 

For information and to register visit kingdomtrails.org

Those wanting to fund-raise for their school, class or organization through pledges should contact Melanie Finn at melfinn1@yahoo.com

To volunteer to help or man a Fun Station, email info@kingdomtrails.org
