Honoring your Child’s Growing Independence

A Night with Robyn Breiman

February 10, 2016

 6-7:30 pm


Please join us for a very special parent education night. We have hired the fabulous Robyn Breiman for three days of intensive Montessori workshops and consultation to our school.  We were overjoyed when Robyn accepted our invitation, as she has dedicated her life to inspiring and guiding authentic Montessori education in the United States, especially in public schools. As part of this visit, she will be speaking to parents about how to support autonomous learning. The night will also feature Ridgeline students showcasing and discussing their own independent work. Don’t miss it!  Childcare is available by reservation.


Please RSVP so we can save you a seat! Forms will be coming home on Friday.


This week…

We have just finished up our presentations on American plains Indians.  This was a closely related group of tribes/nations and I learned many things thanks to the hard work of the students.  For our next round of presentations we will look at the people of the Great Basin and Southwest.  After that we will have only one more presentation on Native Americans before heading into South America.  We are only a week or two behind a pretty tight schedule.

Next week and beyond…

There is no school on Monday due to a grading day.  The rest of the week will be pretty busy as we look at the region of the Great basin, learn about the layers of the tropic and sub-tropic biomes, and finally look at rock stratification.  We will discuss Tolerance as part of our Peaceful Character Studies.
