PUMPKIN PATCH FIELD TRIP: Our Pumpkin Patch field trip to Detering Orchards is scheduled for Thursday, October 22. This year we plan to rent a 4J bus. Since there will be extra room on the bus, we are hoping parents will choose to come and help supervise students. Although Detering’s does not charge for the tour or the pumpkins, we will need to pay mileage/time for the bus. To cover the cost we ask that bus riders pay $5.00. Children will pick an apple and choose a pumpkin to bring home. Please complete the attached permission form and return with cash or a check made out to Ridgeline as soon as possible. If the cost presents a hardship please call our school office for scholarship information. 541-681-9662

CURRICULUM SHARING: This is an opportunity for parents to come into the classroom with your student and allow them to show you some favorite work and activities. This event is scheduled for after school on Tuesday, October 20. Families can come into the classrooms anytime from 3:15-4:15 or from 6:00-7:00pm. Be sure to check out the wonderful PEACE art and poetry displayed in the hallways.

INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR CHERI’S CLASS: No Halloween costumes but a chance to dress up! Thursday before Halloween (October 29), come to school with clothing or an object that represents another country. Students will work together to make flags and maps of their country. They will also share information this information with their classmates. Questions? Please email, send a note or leave a phone message at school. 541-681-9662

**CROSSING GUARDS STILL NEEDED – We still need volunteers to help keep our kids cross the street in the mornings. Adults needed from 8:15-8:40. If you are able to commit for one (or more) morning each week please let us know.

UNICEF FUNDRAISER: Our UNICEF fundraiser is going well. We are collecting coins to help provide shelter and food for refugee families. Children will also receive trick-or-treat for UNICEF boxes for Halloween. All donations collected will be sent directly to UNICEF. At the end of October we will announce the total donations. If you have questions please email, phone or send a note.

Thank you for sharing your incredible children!
Thanks, Cheri and Azusa
