JOY OF SHARING: Joy of Sharing is our annual Food Drive. Families bring in donations of non-perishable food and other essential items, like toothpaste, that cannot be purchased with food stamps. At the end of the week we make boxes for Ridgeline families who need extra over winter break. If your family would benefit from receiving a Joy of Sharing box please contact the office to sign up. 541.681.9662

LUNCH WARM-UPS: We are happy to warm your student’s lunch in the microwave. Please include a microwavable container if necessary. We can do quick warm-ups only. Please do not send packaged foods that require a separate container, mixing or extra prep. Thanks

LATKES ON WEDNESDAY, DEC. 18: Every year, in connection with our study about holidays of the world, our class prepares and eats latkes! Ingredients include fresh eggs, potatoes, sour cream, applesauce and matzah bread. Since each child’s portion with be small, please send a regular lunch.

PUBLIC HEARING FOR CHARTER RENEWAL - As a charter school, Ridgeline is sponsored by the Eugene 4J School District. That sponsorship is up for renewal this year, and we are requesting the district renew our charter contract for the next 10 years. Part of the process is giving public testimony at a 4J board meeting. Please show your love for Ridgeline and support for our charter renewal by attending Ridgeline’s public hearing during the 4J board meeting on December 18 at 7 p.m. During the public hearing, Ridgeline community members will share stories that are a beautiful reflection of our school. (The board will vote on contract renewal at a future meeting.) Please join us and wear your Ridgeline gear!

What: Ridgeline’s public hearing for charter renewal (without it we won’t have a school)
When: Wednesday, December 18, at 7 p.m.
Where: 4J district office, 200 N. Monroe St., Eugene

Thank you, Cheri & Azusa
