Upcoming Events:
Friday, Sept. 27: JOGATHON
Wednesday, October 2: BIKE AND WALK TO SCHOOL DAY

Sharing: “Sharing” in the classroom is a valuable opportunity to practice public speaking as well as fielding questions gracefully. Starting in October students are invited to bring to school an item with educational value on Mondays. Please talk with your student about their sharing and prepare them to speak on three interesting facts about the object. No toys please!

UNIVERSE STUDIES: Our classroom started out with a big bang, learned about the different types of galaxies, and studied the lifecycle of a large star. We are now ready to enter the realm of our very own solar system! Coming up in October students will be learning in depth about the planets in our solar system and the inner workings of a star. Once we study the solar system we will focus in on Earth, our home, delving into the different biomes and biodiversity found on our lovely planet.


In October we plan to visit an apple orchard and pumpkin patch at Detering Farms. Watch for details in the next update.


We are in need of cut out pictures from magazines to be used as writing prompts for the students. Any appropriate pictures are appreciated. Thanks!

If you are interested in volunteering for the field trip to Detering Farms and have your green volunteer badge please email me at rachel.quinn@ridgeline.org. The more the merrier!

If you are interested and available to volunteer during P.E. class on Tuesday/Thursday at 1:35 – 2:25 please email me at rachel.quinn@ridgeline.org.

Rachel & Emily
