DETERING ORCHARDS: Thursday, Oct 11, we will visit Detering Orchards. We plan to rent a 4J school bus and leave school at 9:00 AM. We will return by 12:45. Please send a ‘pocket snack’ for your student to eat on the bus. We’ll also have an apple and lunch before we leave. The children will tour the orchards then ride in a wagon and choose a pumpkin to bring back to school. Please send a light lunch (disposable if possible) and a reusable shopping bag that your student can use to carry a pumpkin. Rain gear (boots & jackets) may be necessary but no umbrellas, please. Pumpkins will stay at school for a day or two so we can wash, weigh and measure them. The cost for the bus, the farm tour and the pumpkin are $8.00. If the cost presents a hardship and you would like scholarship information please call the office 541-681-9662.

You may have noticed that this year you are receiving a lot more communication regarding the importance of regular attendance. This year we are beginning an attendance awareness campaign designed to increase awareness, educate, and ultimately improve student attendance at Ridgeline. Good attendance is strongly linked to academic, social, and emotional success.

We believe that students and families that feel they are included in the school community are more likely to show up consistently. We believe that good attendance will allow your child to fully contribute to and fully benefit from the classroom community. We believe good attendance will not only build strong academics but also build strong socially and emotionally capable humans. Thank you for learning and growing with us!

What a great turnout! Thank you all. If you weren’t able to attend and would like to help just let us know. We have something for everyone! Things to do before, during or after school… from/at home…weekly duties...and occasional jobs. Let us know your availability.

JOGATHON: The students were awesome and the weather was just right. Please return your pledges. Thanks.
