DDD Pasta Dinner – Our annual Ridgeline Community Pasta Dinner DDDEvent will take place this Friday, February 20th from 5-7pm in the gym. Parent volunteers are working hard to organize the evening. We will serve pennepasta with pesto and marinara, bread, and salad. (Gluten-free options will be available.)

There is no fee for the dinner, however we highly encourage families tobring their donation for the Direct Donation Drive. Visit with other Ridgeline families, sign up for escrip, bid on the classroom pasta bowls, and bring your donation for the DDD!  We still need to raise $24,000 in order to pay for PE, our counselor, and music teacher this year!



This week…

This week we learned a little about some of the great explorers of Egypt.  I’m not sure the Egyptians of modern days would see them as great, as they took a lot of cultural artifacts that cannot be replaced, but they are well known explorers at least.  We also began looking at the interesting mammals of Australia.  Marsupials will be a fun area of study that may question what we know about animal classification.  We looked at magnetism as a phenomenon, and not as a powerful shield (as we had earlier).  Finally, we looked at flowers and  pollination.

Next week and beyond…

Next week we continue our studies of flowers and pollination, we will look at reef animals and reef health around the world, and marsupials.
