Last Saturday our students sold their fabulous creative items and donated a portion of their profits to Ridgeline! Thank you!

LuLaRoe: On Saturday, December 9, 11:00am-1:00pm, local LuLaRoe consultants will bring their inventories to the Ridgeline gym for a fundraising event to benefit Ridgeline Montessori. There will be over 4,000 pieces of inventory available to shop from, so proceeds to Ridgeline could be substantial. Get those holiday shopping gift lists, and head on down to the gym on the Dec. 9th. You don't want to miss this!

Our annual food drive, Joy of Sharing, is scheduled for the week of December 11-15. Students are encouraged to bring non-perishable donations to school. In addition to food, other items such as toilet paper and personal hygiene items are welcome. With the donated items, we will create and distribute food baskets to Ridgeline families in need, to help them over winter break.

The students heard all about this upcoming event today from classroom parent, Kate Downing (Eden’s mom), and they were very excited about the possibilities! If you have questions or would like to volunteer for the Talent Show please contact
