Events for Children:
Children's Day/Dia Del Niño: Children's Day is a global holiday celebrating how amazing children are! At RIFC we organize games, music, and have a potluck style lunch with the families!
Raising A Reader: Raising A Reader is a national program that is brought to us thanks to the Seattle Public Libraries. This program allows us to send our students home with a Red Book Bag each week where the children check out two award-winning books to read at home and practice the tradition of sharing books!
School Garden: In our own Delridge Community we have our own P-Patch where we can grow and care for our own plants alongside our community members. As well as having our own personal garden at RIFC, where the children have the opportunity to plant and tend to fruits and vegetables with the teachers.
Enrichment Programs: Throughout the school year, we bring programs to the school such as musical guests, authors, scientists, and our local Fire Dept. or Police Dept. to teach and meet with the children!
Field Trips: We hosts a variety of field trips throughout the school year that are related to what the children are learning that week or month! Whether it is learning about the ocean and sea life with a visit to the aquarium or relating back to our play based curriculum with a visit to the children's museum, all the field trips are fun and educational.
Donations of any kind are more than welcome. All proceeds will go back into our program for events, materials, or to send our teachers to professional development trainings.
At RIFC, we value the collaborative relationships we have with our families to build a strong community here. There are plenty of ways for families to get involved to offer their ideas, help create an event, donate money and more.
