Cheri's Weekly Update 10-13-11

Field Trip to Lone Pine Farm: Our annual pumpkin patch trip is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 21. Parent vehicles will transport students. We will leave school at 9:15 and return around 12:30. We’ll eat lunch at the farm and since this year, cafeteria lunches are not available for field trips, everyone must bring a disposable lunch. Rain gear (boots and jackets) may be necessary. Pumpkins will stay at school for a few days so we can wash, weigh and measure them. Please send $4.00 per wagon rider. If the cost represents a hardship and you would like scholarship information, please call the office 541-681-9662. Please complete the attached permission form and return ASAP.

Curriculum Sharing: What a wonderful turnout we had for this event! Thank you!

Sharing theme (week of 10/17): A sign of Autumn

transportation Help: Our teacher interns need your help getting to Ridgeline in the mornings. Their host families live in the North Gilham area. Wong Fung lives at 3194 Downing Street; Liu Kai’s address is 2460 Snelling Drive. Please let me know if you can help. Even one or two mornings a week will make it easier for them.

Cafeteria Lunches: Please be sure to order and pay for your child’s lunch in advance!

Botany: In botany the children are learning about the life cycles of plants. Our classroom seed collection is growing! We are also studying about the parts of a pumpkin plant and discussing the many types of seeds eaten by humans.

Save the date!! Ridgeline’s capital campaign kick-off is scheduled for October 22 at the Southtowne Shoppes in South Eugene. This is a family event. The celebration will feature student performances, a raffle, merchant discounts and donations, a silent auction, refreshments, and a chance to help the Ridgeline community’s efforts to relocate into our own new home. Email Jennifer Wilson to volunteer or donate,
