CURRICULUM SHARING: The second Curriculum Sharing this year is scheduled for Thursday, May 8. Please come with your child and let them show you some favorite classroom activities. Join us anytime between 3:15-4:15 and 6:00-7:00pm.

BOTANY: We’ve started the study of flowers, one of my favorite parts of the Montessori botany curriculum! Children will have the opportunity to label, draw, paint and dissect flowers in the classroom. If you have extra flowers from your yard, please consider sharing with the classroom

MAY IS BIKE & WALK TO SCHOOL MONTH – Please encourage your students to travel to school by walking, biking, or some other non-motor powered means of transportation. Even walking a few blocks counts for those traveling a long distance. Every day students will have a chance to ‘record’ how they got to school on a classroom chart.

MUSIC SHOWCASE: Mark you calendars for this special all school musical event. Music teacher, Jennifer Searl, has arranged for a musical performance featuring the school choir along with all Ridgeline students. The kids are practicing their songs and “stage behavior” in preparation for this evening affair scheduled for, May 20 at 6:30pm (students should arrive by 5:45pm) at Churchill High School Auditorium.

Sharing theme: Week 5/5- A reminder of a mother or grandmother,

Week of 5/12- A favorite book
