Dear Ridgeline Families, 

HOMEWORK PACKETS: Thank you for your amazing support of the homework program. I appreciate your questions/comments on the record sheets. Please return the homework packet on Thursday morning this week since it’s our last day of school this week. 

STUDENT CONFERENCES are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 7 and Monday, Nov. 10. Students are invited to attend with parents. Please sign up for a convenient time slot on the chart in the school lobby. Or if you prefer you can email me and I’ll let you know available days/times. During the conferences, we will discuss your student’s current work and goals for the year.

If the available times are not convenient, I’m happy to meet with you one day after school.
*The clothing exchange will take place on the same days as conferences—Nov. 7 and Nov. 10.

I look forward to meeting with you. 

GRANDPERSONS’ DAY: Students may invite a grandparent or ‘grandperson’ to Ridgeline, Friday, November 14. Guests should arrive at 10:45 AM. They’ll attend a brief presentation in the library then join their student for lunch at 11:45. RSVP by November 12. For more information please email: or call the office 541-681-9662. 

BOOK FAIR AT BARNES AND NOBLE: Next Friday, November 14, join us at Barnes & Noble for a fun, family time. Several classes will perform and this year our class will present a short reader’s theater performance of “Stone Soup”. Please arrive by 5:45pm so we have time to gather for the 6:00 pm performance. If your family does not plan to attend the book fair please let me know before we assign roles. 

ARCTIC-TUNDRA BIOME: A biome is a habitat and this week we begin our study of the far northern and far southern areas of our planet Earth. The students will research plants, animals and people of this harsh habitat. If you have books or objects that support our studies, please consider sharing. 

WATER HELPERS: Many thanks to parents for your help in keeping our water dispenser bottles filled. Feel free to stop by and we’ll gladly hand over our ‘empties’J 

Sharing: 1/10 Something made with wool, 11/17 A recipe, song or poem
