ASIAN CELEBRATION 2016! Our students were awesome! Thanks for your enthusiastic support!

Dance Instructor, SatPavan, takes time away from work and volunteers to teach the students in my classroom every week. Watching their faces during the performance reminds me just how much they enjoy this happy style of dance.

The class will make a group thank you card for SatPavan and I’d like to include a gift card as our way to say thanks. If you would like to donate funds for SatPavan’s gift card, please send cash or a check, payable to Ridgeline, by next Friday, March 4.

If anyone has a video of the performance, please consider sharing with the class. You can email it to me or burn it onto a DVD. Thanks again for your support.

Chemistry: This semester our students are learning a bit about chemistry. Atoms are the building blocks of all matter. The parts of atoms: protons, neutrons and electrons, all play different roles inside the atom. When atoms combine they form molecules. Ask your student to draw you a picture of an atom and it’s parts! Montessori teacher, Iris Green, spends time meeting with some of the students on Thursday mornings. Their learning includes the study of particular elements on the Chart of Elements.

Zoology: In zoology we are studying the fourth class of vertebrates-the birds. Several children have researched particular birds and will share that information with their classmates. The older students are focused on the invertebrate phylum, or class, Annelid. These ringed segmented worms include earthworms and leeches!

Thank you for your support and trust.
