BARNES & NOBLE BOOK FAIR – Our annual book fair at Barnes and Noble is this Friday! Please join us at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair to purchase holiday gifts, watch classroom performances, and enjoy a fun evening together. A percentage of the book fair purchases at Barnes & Noble will go to Ridgeline. This includes friends’ and family purchases at stores around the country! Just give them the book fair ID number 12212015. All purchases need to be made November 17-22. You must tell the cashier you are with our book fair and give the ID number for it to count toward the book fair. Online purchases do count, although the percentage back to Ridgeline is much less.

Please send vegetables for washing, peeling and/or slicing by Tuesday, Nov. 21. We need volunteers to come into the classroom on Tuesday morning (9:30-10:30) to help the children wash, peel and slice vegetables! If you can help with the vegetable preparation on Tuesday morning, please let me know! Thank you.

“MUSICAL TIME MACHINE” HULT CENTER: We learned so much about the history of music and the composers from different musical eras! The Eugene Symphony orchestra along with Bill Hulings also entertained and taught us about four elements of music: rhythm, melody, harmony and timbre. Ask your student to tell you about this special student concert!

TRICK or TREAT for UNICEF: The kids brought in $87.41! Thank you for your support.
