***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 sent home Friday.

As a polar biome finale, we’ll be learning about the state of Alaska. If you have books or other items that support our studies please consider sharing.

Next week PE and Music classes will change to Tuesday and Thursday. Art class is scheduled for Wednesday afternoons. If you are available to help out once or twice a month (1:00-2:00pm), please let us know.
