UPCOMING EVENT: Every year Ridgeline holds a Project Fair. Students research a topic of their choice then create a visual display to share information with others. This year’s Project Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, March 11. Here are some examples of projects completed by students from previous years: a model of a car engine built with Legos, pictures of pets and how to care for them, pictures and facts about the life of Houdini, a mobile of the solar system, a volcano model, pictures and facts showing the life cycle of a frog, a plant experiment, rules and playing instructions for soccer, 3 generations of a “family tree”. Families can come and enjoy the displays right after school at 3:15 or later in the evening from 6:00-7:00. If you need more information, a cardboard display board ($3 from school office) or project ideas, let me know.

MAY FLOWERS?: We have Narcissus bulbs to plant. If you can come in during the school day and help the children dig holes and plant the bulbs outside, please let me know.
